Up on the roof
Whilst not the most eco minded of individuals I am aware of the ever increasing costs of energy ( a constant in our future) and so one of my future proofing solutions can be seen above. Evacuated tube solar heating is a reasonably efficient way of cutting fuel bills if a suitable roof is available and self installation is undertaken. I seem to have acres of slate roofing and so the panel has been positioned in the most efficient orientation with the added bonus of wind shelter and quite a reflective surrounding thermal mass, by tomorrow I'll know if it works!
