Helping people change the way they think and act on energy
Giving energy advice
Appropriate energy advice is one of the keys to a sustainable future - and essential if we are to help people understand what they can do to improve the energy efficiency of our homes, offices and public buildings.
CSE has nearly thirty years’ experience of giving energy advice both to householders and to organisations. All our advisors are trained to a high standard and committed to giving top-quality advice that leads to lower energy bills and warmer homes – and in some cases both.
If you are a householder seeking advice on how to save energy in your home, see our energy advice for householders microsite.
And don't forget to check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/EnergySavingAdvice.
We work with partners such as local authorities and public-sector organisations to target our advice services on those households most in need. Click here for details of the local advice work we undertake with local authorities in our area (Bristol and Somerset).
Energy advice leaflets and poster
We have also produced a suite of 18 simple information sheets covering many aspects of domestic energy use from loft insulation to using your central heating controls, and secondary glazing to understanding your electricity bill
Out and about
Finally, here is an example of how energy advice can improve people's lives. Firstly, what a householder told us when they first got in touch:
“The carpet in the lounge is very wet due to the condensation problems - which means that my house feels very cold and depressing - I try and go out as much as possible. It means that I am very unhappy at home and wish that I could move house.”
And this is what they said a few weeks later:
“Since having the energy efficiency advice I now know how to use my night storage heaters and the house is now warm when I need it… the condensation is now manageable and I keep the door shut. I am much happier in the house.”
