drink your tea and sell you a new energy supplier, suggest your turn down your heating, and use energy saving lightbulbs, sell you loft insulation and cavity wall stuff and turn stuff off at the wall at night.

Assess where in your home you're expending unnecessary energy and provide potential ways for you to address it.

Survey your energy?

Well i kinda gather that they are looking for energy loss but the council are sending them out because we have put in a right to buy application so was just wondering what excalty they do when they come out.....If they find anyplace where the heat or energy is escaping do the council come to fix it or do they deduct it off the cost of the house ?

Now you've given the relevant information...it will probably be for the house valuation, as a home report is probably getting done which includes an energy survey.

Its part of the home information pack - all propertes have to be assessed. They check things like loft/wall insulation, what materials the walls are built from, the model of the boiler (to check its efficiency), double glazing and whether you have energy efficient light bulbs. If you want a have a more energy efficient house for the report replace all your light bulbs - think it makes a difference of 5% or something.

so if we have more energy efficient light bulbs would this make a difference on the house price ?

Probably not - most people don't pay much notice to the energy report - unless it was really bad. If you were selling the house then I would do anything you can to improve the report but as you are buying I wouldn't do anything to improve the report.

yep, it adds about £1 to the value, as the lightbulbs cost about £1 for 5....
