I know for a fact that the gas ans electricity bills for my patch are rediculously high due to the integrity of the builds. The heat pour from gaps in the roof and leaky, poorly maintained windows and doors. When it's cold outside, it's cold inside, regardless how high the heating is on. Should the DHE be doing more to ensure that we are not being wasteful, whilst ensuring that soldiers are not at the wrong end of soaring fuel prices. It is the general consensus on my estate, and fuel bills are on the whole 10-20% more expensive than living in a privately maintained property where you'd do everything in your power to protect yourself from the price hikes. Givent the opportunity I'd do the improvements myself, the outlay is justly outwieghed by the savings. DHE's response to my request was, do what you want, but, the improvements must be removed on march out! What can we do?
