This guide looks at a range of improvements that can be made to reduce the heat lost through a building’s walls, windows, floor and roof.

This guide is one of a series of guides looking at reducing energy consumption in traditionally constructed homes.While this guide considers improvements to a building’s performance through insulation and energy efficiency measures, other guides will focus on the application of small-scale renewable energy technologies, explaining how each system works and what you need to consider if you wish to install it in or on a historic building. All the guides look at small-scale or ‘Microgeneration’ as it is known. Microgeneration is defined by Government as,“The production of heat and/or electricity on a small-scale from a low carbon source”.
