Building regulations are no guarantee of quality. "We live in an era when our homes have the potential to be energy efficient, comfortable and affordable places to live, despite ever-increasing fuel prices. In the past, it could be argued that we didn't know how to achieve this but today we have no excuses. Yet, on the whole, we continue to build new houses to a pathetic standard, and our refurbishments commonly concentrate on kitchens and bathrooms, rather than investing to provide warm and pleasant places to live without ruinously high fuel bills."
