The Better Insulated House Programme was conceived in 1973 in awareness of the imminent world shortage of fuel which would in time affect its price. The purpose was to explore the energy savings potential in practice of measures to reduce energy consumption in housing. The programme has aimed to monitor the effects of incorporating higher standards of thermal insulation in occupied dwellings so as to:
1) Measure realised energy savings in practice
2) Identify technical risks
3) Note user's reactions.
