Helping to keep your energy bills low

We want to make sure our homes are affordable for our customers to heat. As part of our 2020 Vision, we’re working to increase the energy efficiency of our homes. All properties in the UK that are available to buy or rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years. We want all Orbit homes to achieve a level C or above. For more information on EPC's please visit the Energy Saving Trust website.

We’re looking for outside funding to help us to meet that target, which involves improving about 8,500 homes. Our contractors may survey your home to help us decide if it needs to be improved. You’ll be told about improvements in writing two weeks before they happen, and reminded a week before work starts.

If your home is about to have external wall insulation fitted, this presentation will explain what is involved.
