Warmer Homes York
Welcome to the Warmer Homes York (WHY) initiative! We can help you make your house greener and cheaper to run by cutting down on how much energy you use, while making it more comfortable to live in at the same time:
- If you want to heat your home for less but don’t know where to start, try our handy guide.
- If you are interested in super-insulating your home, have a look at this explainer, and if you would like to arrange for a home assessment, please get in touch.
- We also have a thermal imaging camera available to lend out to members. This is available for free (though a donation would be much appreciated), and comes with a set of instructions to help you use it effectively and make sense of the results. However, we do recommend for best results that the camera is used by someone who has had training with it. We have trained YCE volunteers who can help you through the process of carrying out a basic thermal evaluation of your house to find out which are the weak points most worth tackling with insulation. We ask for a minimum £20 donation for this service. Please contact us on email@example.com if you’d like to arrange a visit. This is best done in winter when the outside temperatures are low and the house is heated.
