Weather resilience

Comprehensive home audits for energy efficiency & resilience to extreme weather

Take advantage of a FREE* audit of your home, with a detailed report on improvements you can make.

 

Are you considering improvements to your home, to make it more energy efficient and better able to cope with extreme weather?

You might be able to take advantage of a free* comprehensive audit of your home, to help you work out the most effective improvements to make.

This new CAfS service is free* if you:

  • have reason to be concerned about the effects of extreme weather (such as flooding) on your home; AND
  • want to make your home more energy efficient; AND
  • are intending to carry out improvement works.

(*These are the general eligibility criteria for a free audit, but we’ll discuss this in more detail with you when you get in touch.)

How it works

Andrew from CAfS will visit your home and carry out the audit on site with you. We use a structured framework created by the Carbon Coop to complete an assessment of your property and identify the aspects of it you could improve.

You’ll then receive a detailed report outlining the actions you could take.

Book an audit

We’re now taking bookings, and we’ll start doing the audits from early March 2017.

To find out more and book your audit, please contact us on 01768 201276 or email [email protected]

We’re able to offer this service thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, as part of the Rebuilding Together programme to build the resilience of people, communities and organisations in Cumbria, helping them to prepare for events similar to the devastating floods of December 2015. The programme is led by Cumbria CVS and delivered in partnership with Cumbria Action for Sustainability and ACTion with Communities in Cumbria (ACT).
