We're Helping residents of Colchester and Tendering to stay warmer and spend less

Community Energy Colchester have been successful in applying to the Climate Action Fund from Essex County Council.

                                            FREE ENERGY SAVING MEASURES FOR ALL HOUSEHOLDS

These measures include the supply and fitting of: draft excluders around doors and windows, radiator reflectors, lining curtains and thin film secondary glazing. In some cases we'll ask for a small donation (£20) toward the cost of the material and installation, this helps us to reach more households.

Retrofitting Advice Service

If you can’t do a retrofit in one go, do still plan it with the whole house in mind



Let's keep it simple!

Firstly, you need to know what are all the options.

Loft insulation and or boarding

Wool, rock wool,micro-fiber or blown insulation

A well-insulated house keeps warmth exactly where you need it – indoors. Loft insulation is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating bills, improve energy efficiency and is a home improvement you can do yourself.


The future of energy is electric

My recommendation is;

To replace gas boilers with a like for like electric combi-boiler. 

Call to discuss

Electric Boilers are the ideal replacement for gas and oil boilers, providing guaranteed warmth and comfort whenever you need it. Electric boilers are 100% energy-efficient, produce zero carbon emissions during use and can be installed quickly and without any mess. Make the transition to electric today for a cleaner tomorrow.

Retrofit Academy training

A Retrofit Advisor is a customer-facing role. They can give independent advice to homeowners or residents, to help them understand retrofit and what the right options are for them and their homes.

Retrofit Advisors are often the first point of contact for residents. In Social Housing they are often Tenant Liaison Officers or similar. They often work alongside Retrofit Coordinators in providing a link with the resident or supporting the administrative process.
