Who are Energy Saving Trust?

We’ve partnered with Energy Saving Trust to bring you our Home Energy Efficiency Tool. Energy Saving Trust are an independent organisation that help UK homes and businesses reduce their energy consumption and tackle climate change.

The Trust works closely with the government to deliver programmes and support to households and businesses across the UK every year. They provide advice on how to make smarter energy choices. They also work closely with businesses to find new ways of tackling the climate crisis and ensuring we have a sustainable future.

How the tool works

To get your personalised action plan we’ll ask a few questions about your home.

Some of the questions includes information on:

  • your postcode
  • the year your house was built
  • how you currently heat your home
  • what insulation you have
  • what your walls and roof are made of.

The tool will guide you through the steps and will create a plan based on your answers. In the plan you’ll see your:

  • current and estimated (after improvements) energy bills
  • current and estimated Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating
  • estimated savings after improvements and how much they’ll cost
  • current and estimated CO2 emissions.

If you need help answering any of the questions, click the help button. If you don’t know the answer to some questions, like the year your house was built, just give a rough estimate.

When you've finished you can download your action plan.

Can I change my action plan?

The more detail you can provide in your answers, the more accurate your plan will be to suit your needs. The tool will prompt you to enter more detailed information if you have it. For example, energy meter readings. Don't worry if you don't know. It will make an estimate based on the answers you've given about your home.

If you don't have time to answer all the questions today, you can choose to save your plan and come back to it later. We'll give you a unique code to enter when you return, so you don't have to answer the same questions again.
