How can LCX help?

The UK Governments target of net zero by 2050 means 3 homes need retrofitting every minute. Having energy efficiency measures installed to your home (in other words, having your home ‘retrofitted’) can improve energy efficiency, reducing both utility bills and your carbon footprint.

Social Housing providers have a target of improving the energy efficiency ratings of their tenants homes to an average EPC rating of C by 2030. This can be achieved through a process that starts with conducting retrofit assessments to determine which energy efficiency measures are most suitable for the property and resident, this assessment outlines the impact they will have on energy usage and heat loss improvements. That’s where we come in.

We can then install these key renewable technologies:

Since 2010, Low Carbon Exchange has helped the residents of our Social Housing clients save an annual 780,361,792.62 in kgCO2 and £368,872,067.57 on utility bills.

Our Tips to Reduce Emissions at Home:

  • Install energy-efficient LED bulbs. They consume less electricity and last longer than traditional bulbs.
  • Install a programmable or smart thermostat to optimize your heating and cooling. Set it to a lower temperature at night or when you’re away.
  • Invest in appliances with a low energy consumption rating. These appliances use less energy and can lead to significant savings on your electricity bills over time.
  • If you’re planning to replace your windows, consider installing double or triple glazing, they provide better insulation and reduce heat transfer. Do consider draught proofing your existing windows and doors.

Top Energy Saving Habits:

  • Unplug devices and turn off lights when they are not in use. Many devices continue to consume power even when they’re on standby.
  • Wait until you have a full load to run your washing machine, at 30 degrees where possible, and whenever weather permits, hang your clothes out instead of using a dryer. This also extends the lifespan of your clothing.
  • Collect rainwater for outdoor cleaning and gardening.
