As the Homes Behaving Badly project comes to an end, the suite of reports created as part of this project are now publicly available.

(If you spot any errors, do tell us. We have found one so far.)
Sections 2 to 5 are specifically for householders, providing an introduction to energy efficiency in the home - from the free and low cost options to the medium and high cost options.
With separate sections devoted to houses of cavity wall construction, houses of solid wall construction and rooms in the roof, there should be something useful here for a wide range of householders.
The case studies in Section 2 demonstrate the big savings that can be made through energy-saving habits and run-of-the-mill improvements to our homes.
For those who are interested, the case studies also illustrate what else can be done to turn an ordinary house into a low-energy home and how much effort and money might be required.
An overview of local housing stock and a summary of the HOBBS project as a whole can be found in Sections 6 and 7 of the HOBBS report.
We hope you find them useful!
