Informing and equipping homeowners to reduce carbon emissions
The County Monaghan SEC was established with the vision to increase awareness across the county in households, businesses, and organisations of their contribution towards carbon emissions.
Retrofitting simply means making changes to an existing building with the overall aim of making improvements in that building’s energy efficiency, decreasing energy demand which reduces carbon emissions and energy costs.
How to reduce your energy use
Homeowners are increasingly aware that they need to improve the energy efficiency of their homes but there is often little information made readily available to them on the steps they can take to make their homes more energy efficient and save money on energy bills.
