Want to save carbon?

Reduce carbon emissions and help the environment

wall-insulation-EWI_Explained_Save_EnergyBy using External Wall Insulation to improve the energy-efficiency of your home or business, you will dramatically reduce the amount of heat needed to achieve your desired comfort levels. Unless your heat is already generated by a heat pump, you are likely to rely on gas, oil or coal to produce your heat. These are all fossil fuels, and burning them to generate heat impacts on the environment.

Even if you have all-electric heating, the electricity you use is likely to be generated by burning fossil fuels in a power station.

Why does burning fossil fuels harm the environment?

co2Burning fossil fuels for our energy production creates Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Carbon Dioxide is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG). GHGs contribute to The Greenhouse Effect.

What is The Greenhouse Effect?

Incoming solar energy from the sun is absorbed by the Earth, and warms the Earth. The sun’s solar energy is in the form of shortwave radiation.

The Earth cools its surface by re-emitting the heat in the form of infra-red radiation. This is longwave radiation.

greehouse-effectGreenhouse Gases (including CO2) trap this longwave radiation, thereby warming the surface of the earth and the lower atmosphere, and contributing to global warming.

We can see from this simple relationship that when you reduce the heat required for your building, you reduce the amount of fossil fuel that has to be burned for energy production, and you reduce your contribution to global warming.

Carbon Savings

The Energy Saving Trust estimates that a typical 3-beroom semi-detached house could reduce its CO2 emissions by 1.9 tonnes per year.
