The environment is a “hot” topic of conversation and generates passionate debate, particularly when you consider a large part of the carbon footprint of someone living in London is produced at home. Sitting in a cosy warm house, watching a property renovation television programme, whilst drinking a nice cup of tea all contributes. Individuals, households and organisations are all trying their best to find ways of lowering their carbon footprint, lessen their impact on the environment whilst lowering their fuel bills. Of course, this is not such an easy task if you live in one of London’s more historic or a listed building.
The truth is, older buildings are just not as good at retaining heat as more modern ones. When you lose heat you waste energy and you waste money. However, this is something that you can address by modernising the interior of your London property with environmentally-friendly design and build solutions.
Saving money and reducing waste are two of the chief reasons property renovation in London is on the rise. Older properties have bags of character, but they aren’t necessarily up-to-date when it comes to being eco-friendly. This is where professional refurbishment can play a key role.
A renovation of your property could help you to preserve a good deal more energy, giving your property a much better score in terms of carbon footprint. At the same time, you could take the opportunity to redesign your interiors so that your home retains its character but is fit for the twenty-first century demands of your household.
