Energy Efficiency

Make your home cosier and healthier whilst reducing energy bills and carbon emissions. 

Where does my home lose heat?

Heat loss in a house can be a major problem, especially in a poorly insulated home where heat can escape quickly leaving it cold and hard to heat, resulting in high energy bills


Warm air can escape from your home in all directions – including the roof, walls, floor, windows and doors – meaning lots of the energy you pay for can go to waste. The first step is to understand where your home may be losing heat…this will help you decide on the measures which will have the most impact first. 

Give or take, about 25% of the heat produced by your boiler will escape through the roof of your home. About 35% of the heat will escape through the walls and through gaps, in and around windows and doors, and about 10% of heat will disappear through the floor.

Taking action to make sure your home is energy efficient has many benefits. For your pocket, for your comfort and for the environment. Making your home more energy efficient can start with small, no or low-cost actions through to insulation, upgrading the building and retrofitting your home.
