Energy efficient improvements 'becoming more popular'



Energy efficient improvements 'becoming more popular'
Energy efficient home improvements, such as the installation of a new condensing boiler, are becoming increasingly more appealing to UK homeowners, a senior technical engineer has suggested.

According to Danny Davis of the Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering, consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of household energy use and may look to explore the potential financial and environmental benefits of making a green home improvement.

He explained that eco-friendly features are also becoming more important to prospective homebuyers, which may be due in part to new energy performance certificates.

"Energy conscious consumers would certainly be attracted to a house incorporating both energy and water conserving technologies over a similar house without such measures in place," he said.

Environmental charity WWF, citing government figures, reported last month that around one-third of homebuyers intend to carry out an energy-efficient DIY project to improve their home's energy efficiency.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18583539-ADNFCR
