Old homes can also benefit from a house energy rating
Even if you’re not building or renovating, it might be worthwhile obtaining a house energy rating.
Do you have an old house that tends to become hot and stuffy in summer? Is it bone-achingly chilly in winter? Does it cost a small fortune in power bills to stay comfortable?
Heritage homes look great – with their grand old architecture – but they have a reputation for being draughty.
There may be an upper limit to just how much you can improve the thermal efficiency of an old house. But even though perfection is unattainable, there are usually still a few improvements to be made here and there.
Your home will be a more comfortable place to live. And you’ll save money on the expense of heating and cooling.
Whether your building is new or old, the first step to rectifying the problem is to call in an accredited assessor. Ring or email Mike Westcott to discuss the options.
