Most of the energy used in our homes comes from fossil fuels. Burning fossil fuels produces CO2, a greenhouse gas which causes climate change. There are many measures that you can take to make your home more energy efficient. These include: choosing double-glazed windows, improving your wall insulation and opting for lined curtains.
There are however, a number of different options open to you in each room of your house including the kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. There are also ‘hidden places’ that you might not even think about that can also be optimized for energy efficiency. These include the attic, the hot press and the boiler.
For an illustrated insight into the many ways that you can improve the energy efficiency in your home, see the infographic below, created by Senator Windows Northern Ireland, for more information.
