Homebuilding & Renovating is delighted to launch the UK’s first National Home Energy Week, a campaign to raise awareness of the ways we can all make our homes more energy efficient.

Escalating energy costs and the climate crisis mean there has never been a more crucial time to improve the energy efficiency of our homes. Ahead of energy price rises taking effect for millions of households from October, even in the wake of the newly-announced Energy Price Guarantee, saving energy is paramount.

In a Homebuilding & Renovating poll this summer, 72% of respondents said that they were worried about their energy bill payments.

National Home Energy Week, which runs from 26 September - 2 October, will be offering advice on energy efficiency, how to insulate your home and install renewables across Homebuilding & Renovating and Ideal Home

Plus, fill in this quick survey and you could win a free home energy audit from architect Paul Testa, the director of HEM Architects and a specialist in low-energy design, to identify the priority areas in your home that offer the greatest energy savings.

What's more, the week will culminate in the London Homebuilding & Renovating Show, where energy efficiency experts will be on hand to offer you advice and guidance to help you lower your bills.

The London Homebuilding & Renovating Show at ExCeL will take place from 30 September to 2 October 2022.

For the first time, the Show will feature Home Energy Hour, where industry experts including eco-expert David Hilton will be talking on topics including how to retrofit and upgrade the heating in older homes, installing effective draught proofing and insulation, and more. 

Showgoers wanting individual advice on how to improve the thermal performance of their home will also be able to book a one-to-one session with an expert at the Home Energy Academy.

Nick Noble, commercial and events director of the Homebuilding & Renovating Show, explains: “Our experts from the Home Energy Academy will cut through the hype, debunk the myths and offer pragmatic and realistic solutions for homeowners, especially those on fixed incomes.”
