Energy efficiency app

Hertfordshire has become one of the first regions in the UK to partner with Energy Saving Trust to provide an energy efficiency app to residents and help them make energy savings.

Unique and easy-to-use the Hertfordshire Energy Advice Tool (HEAT) app gives a virtual tour around a typical home, asking questions and giving advice along the way. Based on the answers provided, quick, easy, low or no-cost actions are suggested to help householders save money on their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint too.

The app is available for both Android and iOS users:
