Warmer Worcestershire 

The Warmer Worcestershire project began with a thermal image survey of Worcestershire to highlight heat loss from roof of properties. The aim of the project is to encourage energy efficiency and save residents money on their bills.

The Warmer Worcestershire network are continuing to promote the importance of keeping warm and well during the winter months. In a typical British home, one third of the heat produced by central heating systems is lost through the roof, walls and windows. For a poorly insulated property, this means that £1 out of every £3 spent is wasted

Find your home

Type in your postcode to the Warmer Worcestershire heat loss map to find out how much heat was being lost through the roof of your property when the survey was conducted in winter 2009. Explore the Warmer Worcestershire web site for advice and tips on how to save energy in your home.

Historic buildings are a finite and non-renewable source.  They define local landscapes and create a sense of place.  It is important to look after our historic buildings, but it is also important to make them as energy efficient as possible, both for economic and environmental reasons.
