Your DIY Energy Audit

Let me guess, - you're fed up with energy price rises and trying to keep your home warm. You've spent hours searching for someone who can do an energy audit on your home, and you've you've come up blank!

I receive lots of requests on a daily basis from people in your exact position. But unfortunately they're not all within the area that I cover, (I'm based in Northern Ireland).

So I decided to do something about it! And this DIY Energy Audit e-book, is the result.

Doing your own energy audit isn't that difficult, provided you've got someone to show you the process, which is where I come in.

So How Will This E-book Help You?

It will walk you through the big problem areas of loft, wall and floor insulation, show you how to look for and stop draughts. It'll also explain controlled ventilation, heating systems and much more. (have a look at the contents below).

Plus it's a lot cheaper than getting someone like me to do it in person.

This DIY energy audit will walk you through the entire process from start to finish and show you:

  • How to breakdown your home into elements.
  • How to look for weak points within those elements.
  • how to make improvements.
  • what the most relevant upgrades are (and they're probably not what you think!).
