Description

This invaluable book is packed full of useful information and tips to improve the energy efficiency of your old house particularly now we are in the age of Home Information Packs and Energy Performance Certificates.

Most people in the UK live in an old house built before the age of modern building regulations and energy-efficiency standards, and one in four of us lives in a house that is at least a century old. However, it is possible to upgrade our existing housing stock and to live in our old houses in an energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable way. In an age of relentlessly rising energy costs, global warming and climate change, it pays to put your own old house in order.
