People across Herefordshire are recognising the importance of making their homes as energy efficient as possible, but knowing where to start can be a challenge. That’s where a retrofit plan comes in.
Home retrofit means adding or changing things in your home to make it more energy efficient. This could include upgrading windows and doors, adding insulation to lofts, walls and floors, or installing technology such as an air source heat pump or solar panels. These changes are designed to make your home warmer, healthier, and potentially cheaper to run. Retrofit can be complex and costly, so to get the impact you want for your home, it’s worth taking the time to get it right.
The Future Ready Homes scheme is currently offering fully funded retrofit plans to home owners across Herefordshire that would usually cost hundreds of pounds. The plan considers your house as a whole and suggests improvements tailored to your home and lifestyle. They outline the expected costs and potential savings, helping you make informed decisions whether you plan to retrofit gradually or in one go.
The scheme is being delivered across Herefordshire by Severn Wye Energy Agency, which runs Keep Herefordshire Warm on behalf of Herefordshire Council.
The scheme is currently open for applications, with a limited number of surveys available between now and June 2023. If you’re interested, don’t delay in applying!
