Retrofitting is the process of making existing buildings more energy efficient. This might range from small activities such as fitting energy-efficient lightbulbs to installing cavity wall insulation or heat pumps.
We are all feeling the impacts of rising energy bills, meaning there’s never been a better time to consider what changes you can make in your own home. More efficient homes will not only be cheaper to run, they will also require less energy to heat, therefore resulting in a lower impact on the environment.
The scale of the task is immense with the UK Green Building Council estimating that 1.8 homes per minute will need to be retrofitted to deliver the UK government’s commitment to net zero by 2050.
