With the SEI Home Energy Saving Scheme a considerable amount of work is being undertaken to retrofit our buildings for energy efficiency.  In principle, installing insulation and new boilers is a positive step, however, in practice there can be pitfalls.

This seminar series explores the different elements funded under the scheme and details the best practices for retrofitting for energy efficiency.  This series will be of interest to contractors, architects, energy assessors, landlords, those interestred in buying or selling a home and homeowners considering retrofitting and availing of the HES scheme.
