Domestic Energy Saving

Domestic Energy Saving

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Develop viable insulation techniques for older type homes and buildings. What do you need to make this change? For the building industry and technologists to get together and use there intelligence to develop ideas to prevent heat pouring out of the walls of old sandstone,granite houses which are common in Scotland.

Points

Heat pumps and sustainable electricity generation are pointless if we use the energy generated to heat uninsulated buildings. All you get are higher electricity bills. Start with keeping the heat in. It is the most cost efficient improvement with the least environmental consequence.

It is really important that we do something to improve the energy efficiency of current housing stock.

Reduce energy use and waste, resulting in less polšŸ˜ƒlution and affordable heating bills

I like the idea but there are techniques already - new ones for old buildings would be good.
