Eco Home Tool
How green is your home?
The UK government has committed to making the UK carbon neutral by 2050. This means that for all the CO2 produced in the UK each year, the same amount will be cancelled out by energy saving measures.
With our homes making up 22% of the UK's total carbon emissions, we all have a part to play in reaching these targets. That's why Lloyds Bank has teamed up with the Energy Saving Trust to give you a Eco Home Tool. It helps you find out just how green your home is and shows you how a few changes could make your home more friendly to the environment.
How does the tool work?
It's really quick and easy to use. Just answer a few questions about your home and it'll give you a personalised action plan with estimates of your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating, energy costs and your home's CO2 emissions. There's guidance provided for each question to help you, should you need it.
Your action plan will also give you tips on the energy efficient improvements you could make to help the environment, how much they might cost and how much money they could save you in the long term.
