‘Retrofitting of buildings is the targeted control of energy loss in domestic buildings via qualitative or quantitative assessment.’
Did you know that any home built before 1990 is considered an old building and is therefore thermally inefficient?
The construction world has been talking about retrofitting homes for decades, but the subject is becoming more frequently discussed as the issue of climate change becomes more desperate. Much of the housing stock in the UK is losing heat through poor glazing, uninsulated walls and lofts, and draughts in all kinds of places. All of these push your energy bills skywards together with old heating systems. Now not everyone has huge amounts available to pay on a deep retrofit. However, the great thing with a retrofit project is that an energy-saving plan can be designed to guide you on how to update your home most effectively.
