Better Homes Yorkshire, York Case Study

A mid-terrace home on Carnot Street in York suffered from poor insulation and heating which was made known by the previous tenants who described the home property as cold, damp and expensive to heat. However, thanks to the improvements made through the Better Homes Yorkshire scheme the house’s energy efficiency rating rose by 44% and decreased the expected heating and hot water expenses by 31%. The property had internal wall insulation installed as well as fitting a new gas central heating system. The home also suffered from damp which lead to inefficient heating as well as expensive bills. Following damp treatment this downstairs room was insulated in a way which would allow the walls to breathe and dry naturally. As a result of the changes the property is now warmer, draught free, healthier and benefits from reduced energy bills.

Councillor Waller, Executive Member for Environment referred to the work done and the schemewith the following statement: “Not only can all residents reduce their heating costs through this kind of work, but it also protects properties from deterioration and reduces their impact on climate change.”
