How to transform a cold, draughty workplace into an energy efficient space [animation]

Making energy efficiency improvements can transform your cold, draughty workplace into an energy efficient one with low carbon emissions and energy bills – here’s how.

In the UK we have old and inefficient buildings, meaning many of us work in cold, draughty, damp workplaces – offices, warehouses, retail spaces and more.

Not only does that impact the health and comfort of staff, customers, and visitors, it also means companies are paying more than they should be on energy bills and producing more carbon emissions from our workplaces and offices than is needed.

The solution? Energy efficiency!

Retrofitting your organisation’s premises will ensure that the fabric of the buildings are energy efficient – well-insulated and air tight, with controlled ventilation. The space will be cosy and warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.

It will use much less energy, reducing your energy bills and the carbon footprint of the business. This animation shows how a workplace can be transformed through energy efficiency.

Take a look at the before and after illustration below for some of the ways a workplace can be transformed by energy efficiency:
