Energy Efficiency

Improving the energy efficiency of your home

Simple changes to your daily habits can save you money each month and help the environment. Using energy from fossil fuels (oil, gas, and coal) in the home releases carbon dioxide into the environment which is the gas most responsible for climate change. Climate change will bring more extreme weather to the UK including stormier and wetter weather with more widespread flooding. Fossil fuels will not last forever and prices will increase as supplies dry up. In contrast, renewable energy – such as wind, water, solar and geothermal energies are clean non-pollutant sources of energy and will never run out.

Micro renewable installations such as solar panels, wind turbines and heat pumps generate free renewable energy for your own home. With the deals and grants currently on offer (in some cases for free) it is worth considering installing these in your own home.
