If you are in the process of building, extending or completely refurbishing your home, it is always much more cost-effective to get the basics such as heating and insulation sorted before work starts in order to avoid potentially costly and disruptive changes halfway through the project.  Therefore the planning stage is the best time to consider how you are going to minimise your property’s running costs and environmental impact.


Expert Energy provides independent advice on low-carbon strategies - we do not accept commission for referrals, nor do we sell solutions ourselves, therefore you can trust our recommendations to be completely unbiased.


Expert Energy’s Andy Smale is a physicist by training.  As well as running Expert Energy, Andy has many years’ experience working in a consultant role for local charity Winchester Action On Climate Change, and is regularly invited to appear as an energy advisor on BBC Radio Solent.  Please see Andy’s LinkedIn profile for more details on his background experience and qualifications.   


We will meet with you to discuss your objectives and review your project plans, outlining appropriate solutions on the following aspects of energy consumption:



Following the meeting we will write up our recommendations in a detailed and personalised report, including (where applicable) indicative capital costs and energy/cost savings compared between alternative solutions.


Expert Energy Guides


We spend a considerable amount of time producing and updating our Expert Energy Guides - these are a series of detailed PDF guides (totalling 130 pages) to particular subjects relating to our most common recommendations, for example upgrading your boiler or installing solar thermal systems.  We send the relevant guides to you separately in order that we can provide you with in-depth information on particular aspects of our recommendations without cluttering up the main report.


Follow-up support


We realise that there may be questions which occur to you after the consultation has taken place, or issues you would like to clarify.  You have the opportunity to ask any follow-up questions you have relating directly to the report for up to 12 months afterwards.


Consultation prices will depend on the size of the property, and on how far we have to travel from our Hampshire offices.  For projects that do not involve a new-build or whole-house refurbishment we usually suggest the home energy survey is a more appropriate package for you.  If you wish to keep the costs down we can also offer remote consultations with the help of plans, photos etc.
