Selby Leads Yorkshire and Humber in Energy Efficiency for Homes

A study conducted by Eliments, window, door, and conservatory installers, analyzed data from the Office of National Statistics ‘Energy efficiency of housing in England and Wales’ report. The study revealed that Selby has the most energy efficient homes in Yorkshire and the Humber, with an average energy efficiency score of 68 (Band D), the same as England’s average. When considering England and Wales, Selby ranks joint 8th, with Tower Hamlets at the top of the list and The Isles of Scilly at the bottom.

Managing Director of Eilments, Danny Hogan, expressed that he was not surprised by the results as properties across the UK continue to age, and older buildings were not constructed to modern energy efficiency standards. He emphasized the importance of implementing measures to save money in the long run, particularly as the cost-of-living crisis continues to impact everyone.

Danny provided advice for those concerned about energy efficiency, recommending the installation of double glazed windows to prevent heat and moisture transfer, the use of thick curtains to keep heat from escaping, maintenance of weather stripping around doors and windows, and the use of smart thermostats to maintain different temperature limits. He also highlighted the importance of opening curtains during the day to allow sunlight to warm the home.
