Climate-friendly homes – energy advice for all
Over the last couple of years, we have seen demand for our energy advice service soar, as local people see energy prices rising and want to take action on climate change.
To showcase our services, we have made a film with Glimpse following one of our energy advisors, Darren Campbell on a home energy advice visit.
Darren has lived in Kirkcaldy for over 40 years. He said that since the energy price hike, bills are becoming ‘unmanageable’ for some Kirkcaldy residents.
‘there are simple things you can do to improve energy efficiency in your home.’ Darren Campbell
In the film, we see Darren visiting Kirkcaldy resident, Andrea, to assess where the cold spots are in her house. He shares a list of ways to improve the heat efficiency of the house. This includes improving insulation and managing how many radiators are in use.
‘by reducing your boiler’s target temperature by just 1°C you could save around £105 a year.’ Darren Campbell
And it’s not just money that residents are saving. By reducing their energy usage, local people are helping the environment at the same time.
Our team are expecting to see demand for our services continue to soar throughout the year. We encourage people in Fife to get in touch for a free consultation.
About the Project
Our Climate-friendly homes project is part of Climate Action Fife, a 5-year Fife-wide partnership project, of which Greener Kirkcaldy is the lead partner. Working with 11 other Fife-based organisations, the project is supporting communities across Fife to take action and tackle climate change. The project is made possible thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK. National Lottery players raise over £30 million each week for good causes across the UK.
