Currently we live in a 1950's terraced property which we had fitted with cavity wall insulation and the world's supply of rock wool in the loft. That along with double glazing and oil fired central heating has kept us toasty at minimal cost.
However, yesterday we accepted an offer for our house, and then had our offer for my wife's dream house accepted.
Only problem is, my wife's dream house is a 150 year old stone cottage with 1950's night storage heaters (allbeit with double glazing). First job will be loft insulation and replacing the double glazing with new more efficient stuff, but any ideas what to do with the heating? Are new night storage heaters better, or are oil filled radiators the way to go? Any other options (short of fitting an oil fired boiler)?
