  • It's all very well using better boilers with better control systems.  But it doesn't get round the problem that British housing stock is old and poorly insulated  Government schemes to address that have been shambolic, and haven't achieved much.


    Even on new builds, enforcement of building regulations is pretty poor.  Housebuilders will build one house on an estate to meet regulations, then claim all the others are just the same, without any testing being carried out.
