If we have better insulation and ventilation then we can reduce heating costs. My parents always say when i ask to turn up the heating put a jumper on. Why can't we do the same for our houses? We need to be always looking for ways to reduce without lowering standards of living for individuals.
Some sort of standard for all new houses, and a scheme to make sure that all houses have proper insulation by 2030. This could cost a lot but ultimately it should save more for people in the long run due to less heating bills.
Why the contribution is important
So many houses have insufficient insulation, this can lead to issues such as fuel poverty as people struggle to cover high heating costs just to stay warm. If we can make sure that all houses are properly insulated then we can massively reduce costs and emissions. If we can trap and conserve heat then we don't need to worry as much about heating.
It kinda ties into the idea of reduce waste and recycle things.
