Building Fabric (Energy Efficiency) Guide
The building fabric guide details how low-cost improvements can dramatically reduce heat loss through building fabric, to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs. In particular it looks at opportunities for energy saving in roofs and lofts, walls, windows, doors and floors. This includes:
• Cavity wall and roof insulation.
• Windows and glazing, including the benefits of double glazing, low-emissivity glass and integrated blinds.
• Air infiltration and the importance of replacing broken seals and improving draught proofing.
• Action checklist for building fabric energy efficiency improvements.
