The 22nd Century Home
B&Q would like to help you reduce the amount of energy used in your home. And what better way to show you, than with our home! Follow our experts as we refurbish our 3 bedroom end of terrace into an eco-friendly 22nd century home. Follow the latest developments, watch videos, tell us your stories... and get inspired!
The house is complete - but we are already starting to make further improvements.
Insulating your floor could save about £50 per year from your heating bills according to the Energy Saving Trust.
A third of your home's heat can be lost through cavity walls according to the Energy Saving Trust - even more if you have solid walls.
Draughty windows let heat escape from your home, adding to your heating bills.
Every year you could be losing £40 to £140* through the roof unless you have 270mm loft insulation.*
