Did you know that in York 36% of carbon emissions come from housing and only 36% of homes are well insulated (according to research by Friends of the Earth)? Eco-retrofitting of homes, which we showcase with our York Open Eco Homes events, brings multiple benefits – from reduced carbon emissions to greater comfort and lower energy bills. To get started, it’s good to know how good, or bad, your home is. St Nicks can help you with tips and by lending you a thermal leak detector, which shows where draughts come in. York Community Energy can even lend you a thermal imaging camera and help you get an assessment so you can plan your improvements.
You will find more tips of the week on this page.
