The average energy rating for a home in the UK is a D. We don't think that's good enough.

For years, people have been plagued with cold calls and letters claiming that they could cut their bills in half by installing solar panels or inviting them to receive grants for insulation from schemes that don’t exist.

Rightly, people are confused. They don’t know where to start or how best to invest in their home to reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint.

This is why we founded Furbnow: to give impartial, actionable advice, and carry out the work your home actually needs.

If you’re looking for support with an ongoing project we can help with that too from DIY tips to project management, just get in touch.
