Retrofitting your home
A home retrofit aims to improve the energy efficiency of a house or flat by making it easier to heat up and better at retaining heat. It also looks at renewable energy options to heat and power your home, which could mean significant savings on energy bills over the long-term and help you live more sustainably.
What are the benefits of a home retrofit?
Lower energy bills
The heating system of a poorly insulated home will have to work harder and could cost you more to run. So, reducing how much heat your home wastes makes sense for your pocket and the planet.
A warmer, energy-efficient home
Improving insulation and reducing heat loss will not only make it easier to heat your home but could also help to keep it warmer for longer.
A healthier environment
Taking steps to reduce or remove cold, damp and mould will help improve air quality in your home and could have a positive impact your health too.
