Poor quality homes in Wales are “pumping money out of the door”, according to a government adviser.
The country’s old and inefficient houses are among the worst in western Europe. It means householders are spending far more on bills than they need to, and causing more harm to the planet. The Welsh government said it had invested £150m for renewable energy and digital technology to decarbonise social homes.
Through the initiative, it aims to promote how small changes such as insulating walls, draught excluders and monitoring electricity use can save money and reduce emissions.
