WHAT I CAN DO TO IMPROVE MY HOME AND REDUCE MY CARBON FOOTPRINT
Many of us in Croxley Green live in buildings that pre-date the Second World War and therefore are more difficult to insulate and protect from the excesses of the climate than post-war buildings. Everyone can do something to save themselves money. In this short article our advice can only be general.
In older homes, which were constructed in a time when coal was cheap and central heating was rare, most will, by now, have been improved and adapted with double glazing and loft insulation. If your home has not been improved or has only been partially improved there are a range of items for which you can get financial assistance under the Government’s Green Deal scheme https://www.gov.uk/green-deal-energy-saving-measures. These include:
For those who do not have central heating or whose boiler needs replacement there are alternative forms of heating which can attract financial benefits under the Government’s Renewable Heating Initiative (RHI) https://www.gov.uk/domestic-renewable-heat-incentive.
Even if you do not qualify for either of these schemes or do not wish to participate in them, there are so many things that you can do to your home to save money and improve your comfort. There are many firms which offer such services. Only use firms which belong to a recognised trade body and which offer guarantees or warranties.
