Welcome to Green Our Herts

Our climate is changing but we can have a big effect by making small improvements which can also help us to save money and improve our lives. This site aims to make it easier by bringing together information on how we could reduce our impact on the environment and adapt to our changing climate.

Hertfordshire Warmer Homes

Keeping warm is important for your health, especially if you have a young family, are over 75 or have a long-term health condition such as respiratory disease. The World Heath Organisation recommends that safe indoor temperatures of 21o C (70oF) during the day and 18oC (64oF) at night. For those with concerns about the costs of heating their homes there is help available.

Hertfordshire residents could be entitled to free or discounted home energy improvements through the Hertfordshire Warmer Homes Scheme.  The scheme is run in partnership by Hertfordshire County County and the district and borough councils.

Energy efficiency improvements such as insulation will help you both to live warm at home as well as reduce the cost of your energy bills. It is recommended you have 27cm or 10 inches of loft insulation.

How Green is Your Home?

Almost anything we do has some kind of an impact on the environment. Unfortunately most of our actions have harsher effects than we realise.

In order to lessen these effects we have researched many subjects (e.g. transport, energy and outdoor recreation) related to everyday life. From this research we have compiled the most relevant and interesting information and presented it all under one roof. To make the browsing of our website even easier we have designed an interactive house summarising the main points.
