What is an energy audit?

An energy audit takes 40 minutes and it happens in your home. Our energy officer will look at how electricity and/or gas is used in your home and how you can save energy and save money.

Guide to delivering home energy audits

This guide explains how we engage residents in thinking more about energy use in their home, deliver an audit in the home and relay our findings to support residents to consume less energy. There are also case studies and a sample checklist of actions we may recommend.

How we support residents to save energy in their homes

We have conducted more than 600 home energy audits on the southside of Glasgow to support residents save energy. Each home is different and the way residents use energy in their homes varies. We have collected a few case studies together to show the range of energy-related issues we have tackled.

Energy case studies

This booklet includes a collection of five case studies which explain how South Seeds has helped residents save energy or sort out energy bills. We were able to deliver this work to save energy and save carbon through funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge fund.  

Improving Victorian tenement windows
