In the modern world, on average we spend 90% of our time indoors. Often these indoor environments have been designed poorly, cost a lot to heat and can be breeding ground for damp leading to mould and other problems. Studies have shown that this can have a negative impact on our health and well being, in turn affecting our quality of life.
In addition, a quarter of all the UK’s carbon emissions are from the energy we use to heat and power our homes. Improving the energy performance of our homes is a key part of the puzzle in cutting harmful carbon emissions, which will help protect our overheating planet.
We need to do this soon. As homeowners, making improvements to our homes will not only reduce our environmental impact, but it will also make our homes healthier and more comfortable for our families. A win-win solution.
