Your home

Day to day, you are probably unaware that the heat that you pay for, which is used to keep your home warm, seeps out through the walls, roof windows and doors, and floor. That is why you need to keep on heating your home, to top up the heat that has been lost. Reducing this heat loss by installing energy efficiency measures will reduce the amount of money you use to heat your home. The diagram below shows where heat is lost from a typical house.

Typical heat losses from a house

By insulating your home and becoming more energy efficient, you can significantly reduce the heat loss from each of the areas shown above. This will mean that your home will be much warmer and more comfortable, as well as saving you money on your fuel bills. In turn, because less energy used means less Carbon Dioxide, you will be helping the earth to combat Climate Change.
