See how people in Bristol and Somerset are using the Green Deal to improve their homes

The aim of this website is to encourage people in Bristol and Somerset to undertake low-carbon home improvements through the Green Deal.


It gives householders who have done this – for example by insulating their home, installing micro-renewables or draught-proofing their windows and doors –  the chance to share this with others, and to rate the installers who carried out the work.


You can browse the map below to find case studies near you, filtering the results by the type of home and by the type of improvement.


We are the Centre for Sustainable Energy, a registered charity based in Bristol. Why not check out our Home Energy Advice website to get impartial support and advice before undertaking your new home energy improvement project.

The guy who came to survey was very professional ...a really nice chap and talked about the heat in the rooms. So I’ve now had a double radiator installed in the lounge which did get cold and it’s made a massive difference. He talked through the heating in all the rooms with me.
The company I had were really really good from the first time I contacted them till the finish.
The guy on the phone followed everything up, emailed me and sent stuff he said he would. They discussed two or three boilers with me..what they would do and how they would work in terms of the flat. From there I went on the Which site and explored the boilers. I didn’t want to be in a position where it might cost me more. The installers arrived on time and were very tidy.
I’ve got two niggles though. They didn’t leave an instruction booklet for the programmable thermostat – I’ve found this online now - and they chipped my bath and didn’t tell me, which was annoying.

I needed a new boiler because my old one was temperamental and the hot water would come in and out. The installers were brilliant; they were really efficient. Two young lads turned up (who I thought didn’t look old enough to do it!) but they did a really good job. They were really clean and tidy and they were in and out in a day, and they did everything. They were really fast. Another contractor had already told me that they would take two days and these guys did it in a day so I was quite impressed with that.

They managed to fit it in between Christmas and new year so I was off work which was perfect. I work from home and thought that I’ll have to take two days off of work and it would be a nightmare and I’ll lose loads of money, but no, they fitted it in really quickly, around me, so it was just great.

They were brilliant. I don’t think they could have done any more.

I couldn’t give a five purely because the timer wasn’t put in the boiler immediately, which meant that the boiler was on constantly for a while which was an unnecessary expense. It was a bit confusing as to why that had happened and when the work would be completed.

The installation process went fine and was all quite straightforward. All the communication with the company, they came when they said they were going to, and they were quite experienced and helpful, showed how to use the system and all that, quite informative.

There was one slight difference on the quote they gave me about installing additional thermostatic valves on each of the radiators. The installers said they were going to replace each one on all the radiators but they didn’t replace all in the end......Some radiators already had valves on them and they said they were actually the same as their ones. That’s the only slight thing that happened. There wasn’t a problem at all really.
