Today’s best in class building and heating technologies provide many answers to the question – how will we tackle decarbonisation of heating in existing homes? Read our blog and comment below to let us know how we can embrace ‘best practice’, become an expert at it, and tell everyone that ‘good enough’ isn’t good enough anymore.

  • The easier solution is not to heat the houses, but to lag the people, in a jump back to the methods of a previous era, we could wear thicker pyjamas at night and more generally wear jumpers indoors, it is a lot cheaper and less wasteful of resources. There is no need to heat the whole house to a temp where you can walk around in your underwear and not feel cold.

    This light-hearted sketch purports to show the effect of global warming, but what it  really demonstrates is increasing personal fuel consumption in recent times.
