The potential easy measures which could be installed in a home during a RE:NEW visit includes the following. However, please note that not all measures are installed in each home and the number installed in varies based on the requirements of the home. The figures below are sourced from Ofgem, Ofwat and the Energy Saving Trust.

Measure kgCO2 / yr Low Energy light-bulbs/ CFLs (saving per bulb) 7 Tap aerators (saving for whole house) 42 Radiator panels (DIY Per Panel) 3 Radiator panels (professionally installed, per panel) 5 Stand-by switches - 'Standby buster', remote controlled 23 Stand-by switches - intelligent mains controller/central unit shut-down 12 Real time monitors 66 Hot Water Tank Jackets 195 Save a flush 0 Hippo cistern displacement device 0 EcoBeta cistern replacement device 0 Showertimers 20 Showerheads 93 Draught Proofing* 114 Block gaps around skirting* 95

* The carbon saving provided here for these measures is an average of the savings for the 7 different house types, but is not weighted by the split of these housing types across London or in each area.
