Bernard Rhodes, B&Qâ€™s Category Manager for insulation says: â€œWe aim to make it easier for people to save energy within their homes; we have products available to help them discover how much energy they are using and offer energy saving solutions, to enable them to reduce their consumption and their energy bills.â€
The Next Step â€“ Once you know how much energy you are using, and have done everything you can to reduce your energy wastage and still wish to do more, then you have the option to harness natural energy.
B&Q stocks a range of products, which allow you to exploit natural energy, so that you can create your own energy and reduce your reliance on purchasing energy.
A Windsave wind turbine (Â£1,898 including installation) helps homeowners create their own energy and reduce their propertyâ€™s CO2 emissions:
The Windsave WS1200 is a revolutionary micro-wind turbine system, designed to supplement the supply of electricity drawn from the National Grid; it connects directly into the ring main of the property via a fused spur outlet.
The turbine is a professionally installed wall-mounted system, which uses specifically designed anti-vibration bracketry.
Solar Panels (from Â£2,198 excluding installation) enable you to generate your own hot water, and there is no need to worry about the lack of British summer time â€“ the panels only need daylight to work, not direct sunlight.
Solar panels can be integrated into most types of hot water systems including combi boilers; available supply only or supply and fit.
