And just like that we have sliding doors! 🎉 and doesn’t Hubby look chuffed 😊.
.
We’ve spent pretty much the entire weekend in packing chaos so looking forward to the removals team getting it done tomorrow so I can at least think about something else. Although we’re between homes and of no fixed abode the kids are taking it all in their stride and quite excited about the prospect of sofa surfing. Although maybe that’s because they think it might actually involve surfing 🏄‍♀️ 🏄‍♀️ 🏄‍♂️ 🤔😳

We're loving this weather and I'm sure 150mm of insulation throughout will be fab in the winter but I think we underestimated the effect of solar gain with big windows 😳😂 and how well we retain the heat! The MVHR is making little difference so we've resorted to plug in tower fans in some rooms but 26 degrees in our bedroom at 6am isn't great! I can't open the window as the birds wake me at 4am 🙄 but it doesn't make much difference anyway. Is anyone else having this problem? Installing air con seems a bit drastic 🤷‍♀️ #newbuild #selfbuild #solargain #hothothot #insulation #airconditioning #mvhr #toohottosleep #helpneeded #bigwindows #roomstat.

How’s your energy?
.
We have solar power - we first installed a 1.5kw system in Sydney seven years ago, and put on a 5kw system when we moved to Perth three years ago. Did you know that Perth is one of the sunniest cities in the world? It’s a no-brainer to get photovoltaics here, if you can.
.
Getting solar power prompted us to change our energy use patterns. Now we run our dishwasher and washing machine after about 8am, once we are producing enough electricity for our base load plus those appliances.
.
On sunny days, we might run the dryer for the socks and undies, because it’s basically free to do so. We try to limit our use of power after 2pm (when peak rates kick in) unless we’ve got plenty from the solar.
.
I’ve got an app on my phone (pic 3) that shows what the inverter is producing (pics 5&6) and we can check the meter box to see if we are using solar power (the red flashing light is off) or importing from the grid (the light flashes faster the more we import) (pic 4)
.
When we got our Sydney system, it cost $5k. So did the Perth system, which produces 3x as much power - that’s how much prices are dropping as takeup rises.
.
I’m told the sweet spot for battery installation will arrive in about 1-2 years, so we’ll investigate that too, to see if we can bring our bills (currently about $700/year) down to zero.
.
Have you considered getting solar power at home? Sing out if you have any questions!

They're in! Well, most of them. Dark grey on the outside, light grey on the inside. Swipe to have a peek. So glad to see these finally go in. House getting closer and closer to finally being sealed. 🙌🏻🙌🏻

At this home we installed black suntellite panels to blend into the roof. With a sunny boy inverter tucked away in the hallway cupboard. The owners can monitor their production and consumption at all times through the sunny boy app. #solar #solarpanels #sun #solargain.

Install we did over summer up in Pakiri for our mates @rnbbuild. Can’t beat it when the panels get all day sun ☀️🏠.

The summers are a great time for #bbs as it’s a time where we carry out all the larger works that the schools require but can not accommodate during term time. Today we installed 32 no vertical blinds in a PVC fabric to avoid the #solargain on the south facing windows and 9 no roller blinds to the school hall at Broad Oak Primary School in #didsbury

If your school hasn’t yet planned the work for the summer we still have some availability to fit them in before the kids return.
