Jean Osanz – Piora

Renovating a very old house

We came to this house in June 2017. It is located in Piora, near Casino. We spent the first two weeks shivering with two electric oil heaters running flat out since there was no heating and no insulation.
The first job I did was to open up the roof space and lay rock wool all over the ceilings. The wood stove got installed shortly after that, then a 7.5kW reverse cycle air conditioner followed by a 6.6kW solar system.
I am very happy to report that we have been nice and warm ever since and the horrible power bill is now a lot easier to manage!

Jean
