Eco Retrofit

A new build sustainable homes is a fantastic step towards reducing our carbon footprint. But as more than 80 per cent of the houses that will be standing by 2050 have already been built, retrofitting our existing dwellings is a crucial measure.

An eco retrofit is a way of taking an existing building and reducing its energy demand to make it comfortable during the extremes of weather and so forth.

This can include adding insulation, making sure the windows are airtight and insulative in their own right, and considering whether the heating sources are as efficient as can be.
