The Home Energy Saving Kits have been developed energy agency Codema and contain six practical tools to help the public save energy at home.  The items in the toolkits address three key areas of energy use in the home – space heating, hot water and electricity consumption – and can help identify common problems such as lack of insulation, poor ventilation and the appliances in the home that might be driving up electricity bills.

The kit is also accompanied by a step-by-step user manual and demonstration video which explain how to use each tool correctly.
