Over the last two years, our energy bills have roughly doubled and sadly there's no sign of them going down. Improving home efficiency can help to reduce bills. 


As part of our Retrofit Programme, we're keen to find out from residents in the former Harrogate District, what you know about retrofit, what action you have taken or plan to take, to make your home more efficient and cut costs.
