I read this the other day. It might be of interest, Wardy. Bear in mind though that he is in Canada and receives more sun than we enjoy here in the UK, and he has much shorter periods of over cast weather. He's also built himself a shoe box at just 65m2. However her does deal with temperatures far lower than the worst UK winter.

So... some things to think about and learn from, but he's certainly the exception to the rule. Few people could heat their home from solar, and even he needs to accept a very large internal temperature variation of about 8 degrees. My heating is controlled to within 1 degree, and I wouldn't want much more myself as just 1.5 degree difference is all it takes for me to go from feeling cold to too warm.

Thanks for sending that link my way mate!. There are some great projects on there that are striving for the same goal as me. I'm still trying to work out which route to go down for heating and hot water, I really like the look of the sunamp heat batteries you showed me. I need to do some more research into them on how best to incorporate them.
