First, a summation of home defects leading to energy waste. Much of the energy loss in Ireland comes from poorly designed homes, insufficient insulation, poor, old or insufficient heating systems, older, inefficient appliances, outdated home lighting and finally, poor homeowner energy use habits. Many homeowners don’t know what is causing the high energy bills, or how to fix it. Public education is of vital importance in saving energy and reducing CO2 gas emissions to the atmosphere.
