What Our Customers Say
I just wanted to write to say a huge thank you to you all at The Energy Saving Store.
The service I received was exceptional, especially given the very short time frame we were dealing with.
As you are in Scotland and we are in Devon, I doubted you'd even be able to find me a local Green Deal Report assessor, let alone turn the report around in less than 24 hours. How wrong I was, we spoke on a Monday afternoon, Rob the assessor was here Tuesday morning and by Tuesday afternoon I'd received the completed report and was able to submit our RHI claim which is now being processed by Ofgem.
It's so impressive that even though we are hundreds of miles away you were able to provide us with such efficient and fast service.
We contacted The Energy Saving Store for a home M.O.T. which was speedily and efficiently done. We were then advised to change the method of heating from old storage heaters to new highly efficient Elnur units with thermostatic controls as we could then utilise the off-peak electricity meter we have, and now we cannot believe the difference in the house it's amazing!
David explained to us simply that the house needed a new heart and boy was he right its so cosy now.
We are always wary of having installers on our property, but yet again as David was in control as he even took the time to come up to Brora from Munlochy to inspect the job as it progressed. The installers, led by Jack, were spotless, courteous and professional even hoovering up at completion - wonderful to know quality of workmanship is still out there.
We owe a well deserved thank you to Elnur Heaters' and the installers' 5 Star service. The heaters were installed in 24-36 hours and all old units disposed of.
David and The Energy Saving Store were 100% in control of the works, doing a perfect job and creating a 'new' home that we love. He even converted our lighting to LED bulbs, gratis, which will now use up to 90% less energy giving more amazing savings.
All in all a clean, fast and extremely efficient service.
I recently contacted David at the Energy saving store for a house mot / energy survey and to explain the details / drivers behind a previous EPC.
David was swift in his response and during his visit was most effective at explaining what options were open to me and showed his expertise in explaining what the 'drivers' were behind my EPC rating.
David impressed by quickly supplying further data which will allow me to make informed choices on the way forward.
My advice would be to get a Home MOT, giving the way forward to a more comfortable home, saving money on energy costs and be friendlier to the environment.
Well done and thank-you David and the energy saving store.
Many thanks for your support over the last couple of months.
Your service has been fantastic - Through your recommendations (help with the Energy Savings Trust Loan & identifying a suitable PV installer) I have now installed a 7.2kW PV solar system and would highly recommend the company you suggested - R&A Renewable (previous PV suppliers would limit my request to a 4kW system only). I had concerns over the aesthetics, installing PV onto a Slate roof - but as you can see from the pictures I think that R&A provided a great service.
We installed the system which you recommended to provide free hot water as soon as we are generating more electricity than we are using! With your help we have replaced more than 100 different types of light bulbs to LED's a chore which I knew I needed to do, but kept putting off!
I'm looking forward to seeing reductions in my electricity bill and income from the FIT tariff - and believe that we have made a good long term investment based on your recommendations. I'm looking forward to your support as we consider the next steps to install a log burner and start to reduce the gas bill!
Thanks for your kind invitation the other evening.
I found the various talks very informative which gave me a fuller understanding of the energy saving technology that is available and the remarkable cost savings that can be achieved. It was also great to know that at your centre you cater for all types of properties : industrial, commercial and domestic.
You obviously have spent numerous hours researching the latest and most efficient products on the market and they are all there for you to see and touch at your centre. It was pleasing also that the installers you have on your database are reliable, honest and trustworthy and I found them very easy to talk to.
I was also surprised to learn that government funding of up to £10,000 is available for many installations.
I will be spreading the word about the advice and services you offer and most of all it is time people woke up and educate themselves as the savings are very rewarding and not to be overlooked.
I am so pleased I won this Home Energy Report. David was so helpful, professional, and knowledgable with his advice and recommendations. Not to mention getting replacement bulbs, tips and ideas that will be extremely helpful to us. Thank you so much.
A really beneficial prize to win.
