WHAT IS RETROFITTING?
This is the word for making houses (Council houses, social housing and private sector) more energy efficient. It involves, among other things, installing better insulation and double glazing. Retrofitting is beneficial to the environment because it reduces energy consumption.
RETROFITTING = GREEN JOBS
To carry out retrofitting that would benefit all the community would need thousands of skilled and trained workers to make materials and install and fit.
RETROFITTING BENFITS TENANTS AND HOMEOWNERS
Houses would better retain their heat so that it costs less to heat a home. Tenants woud save money and live in warmer and healthier homes. Fuel Poverty would be reduced.
