What if you could reduce your energy bills and make your home eco-friendly at the same time? Adding eco features to your home could also increase your home’s value.
Help the UK reach its target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, by improving your home’s energy efficiency. 21% of the UK's carbon emissions come from our homes (source: Energy Saving Trust).
How to start making greener changes
Our Greener Homes Hub can help you on your energy improvement journey with tips and information to make your home more eco-friendly.
Read our Green Homes report
Our Buying into the Green Homes Revolution (12.69 MB) report looks at how we can adapt existing buildings to reduce energy consumption and emissions. This is known as retrofitting.
In the report, you can:
- see how retrofitting is changing buyer demand in the current property market
- read views from the public, estate agents, and mortgage brokers on the current retrofitting environment and how this will change in the future
- see how the government, housing industry and individuals are working towards achieving the Net Zero emissions target by 2050, with recommendations on what would spur increased action
- look at how families can get support to make energy-efficient improvements to their homes.
Understanding energy efficiency
Homes that are better insulated and have more efficient heating systems are likely to be cheaper to heat and produce fewer carbon emissions.
