Better Homes Yorkshire, Rothwell Case Study

Thanks to partial funding from the Government's Green Deal Home Improvement Fund, we were able to complete external wall insulation (EWI) on properties within Rothwell, Leeds last summer. A year later we revisited the properties to find out how the owners are benefitting from the improvements carried out.

EWI reduces heat loss through the walls, this was noticed by the home owner who said "The house has been much warmer over winter. I didn't have to use my fire this winter, I normally have to put it on to back up the central heating a few times."

When asked about the finish to the exterior of the property, the resident informed us that "everyone admires the way the house looks, visitors comment on it". The render on the property was chosen to match that of the existing properties in the street.

EWI takes four weeks to install and provides your home with better weather-proofing and a renewed appearance. When asked about the work timetable, the resident said: "The biggest problem was getting it done, but once it got going it's been great. The men who did the work were wonderful and it was very easy." Thanks to the improvements to the property, the home's energy efficiency improved. The savings from EWI alone could be as high as £475.
