This is a service built from experience – it’s what I needed when retrofitting my own home, and is developed from 20 years experience helping homeowners and landlords across the country with theirs.

For me it was well worth it to have someone to help me, including referrals to companies that you know are going to do a good job.

1. Free Online Advice


Looking for free energy efficiency advice? Our retrofit advice service is powered by the same modelling used by local authorities and the landlords of over 2 million homes to plan for net zero. Ecofurb puts the power of those calculations into your hands.

Our free online energy efficiency advice invites you to refine the details of your home and your budget, and to enter your home energy goals. This means we can identify a package of energy efficiency measures that is likely to suit your home, your household and your budget. And estimate what it could cost.

2. Tailored Ecofurb Plan

Online advice is helpful but is no substitute for a home survey and tailored, expert energy efficiency advice.

Our Ecofurb Plan service starts with a home survey. This includes detailed measurements, 360° photography, drone footage to check roof condition, and learning more from you about your home and the way you live in it. 

One of our Retrofit Coordinators will analyse all this information to prepare your Ecofurb Plan, and take you through the detail. The Plan sets out how energy efficiency measures could save you money and cut your carbon emissions, based on the detail of your home, and our Retrofit Coordinators’ expert knowledge of the options available.

3. Trusted Partners

Many of our customers turn to us as they don’t know who to trust. We help in two ways.

To help you pay for your home improvements, we’ll check if energy efficiency grants are available, we work with banks to meet their green finance requirements and we offer independent financial advice, with advice available on mortgages, equity release and relevant home improvement loans

On completion of a Plan, we offer quotes from vetted installers, where available. For extra protection, your Retrofit Coordinator will oversee quality by applying their knowledge of your home, the technicalities of energy efficiency works and our quality assurance framework.


Home Energy Efficiency Case Studies


“All the information was extremely helpful and contributed towards making the right decisions with regard to refurbishing my old Victorian house and reducing energy bills in a more environmentally friendly way. I particularly like the phases outlined in order of importance and easiest to implement. Ben was available to chat on the phone afterwards to explain a few things in more detail… …It also included measures suitable for the age and type of property … and what materials to use… …I have recommended your service to others who are unsure about the most environmentally friendly improvements to their homes. I found the experience very helpful and informative.”
