How can I save energy in my home?

Almost half of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions come from energy we use every day, much of it at home. By making more efficient use of energy and reducing waste we can all help prevent climate change and save money on bills. Grants may also be available to offset against the cost of energy efficiency measures.


View guidance on improving your home1 with the Energy Saving Trust or complete their Home Energy Check2 to see how you could save money.
