Many of the world's biggest challenges, from poverty to wildlife extinction, are made more difficult by climate change. And things will get worse if we do nothing. But we can do something about it.
Our homes are leaking energy and money, and contributing to climate change, because they lack a basic standard of energy efficiency. The energy waste from inefficient homes is costing the UK £8 billion per year. For people, for species and for the planet, the UK government must act now to end this waste!
Take a minute to send a message to your MP to show you want UK Government action for better homes, that tackle climate change.
The exact amount of energy and money that can be saved through installing insulation measures will differ from household to household. Our calculations are based on models taken from the Energy Saving Trust . These have been produced by models based on the typical types of homes commonly found across England, Scotland and Wales, with the assumption that they are heated to 21 ° C in the home’s living area and 18 ° C in other areas of the home. The model assumes that houses are heated with gas, and with an average boiler efficiency of 82%.
