As part of the Better Homes Yorkshire scheme we completed work on our Barnsley show home which had various improvements carried out in order to make the property more energy efficient. The property was fitted with External Wall Insulation (EWI) to the front and rear of the property before being covered with a brick affect render in order to maintain the original features of the property and to maintain the look within the street. As well as this new energy efficient doors were fitted to the front and rear of the property in order to reduce draughts within the property. Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI) and Flat Roof Insulation were fitted to the extension at the rear of the property to improve its energy efficiency. As a result of these improvements the tenant should find the home to be less draughty, warmer and healthier on the whole and could expect to see savings around £519 over 3 years.
A video of the completed property with testimonies from both the resident and landlord and their views on the work done is available below.
