Energy Efficiency Q&A
Why do homeowners need to be energy efficient?
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the main greenhouse gases which causes climate change. It’s estimated that around 40% of the UK's man-made CO2 emissions come from the energy we use at home and when we travel. By encouraging homeowners to reduce their CO2 emissions, they can help in the fight against climate change and save money on their energy bills too, so it’s a win-win situation.
What difference can I make?
As a trusted expert, homeowners regularly rely on you for advice. With them looking at ways to make their properties ‘green’, electrical installations are a good place to start when it comes to making energy savings. But to make the most of these opportunities, homeowners need educating on the solutions available, which is where you come in. By understanding the opportunities available, you can add-on sales to generate greater revenue and become an energy expert.
Do I need to be aware of any legislation?
The majority of legislation introduced by the government into the UK affects businesses. This includes the Carbon Reduction Commitment, Part L2 of the Building Regulations and Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.
