We do this through small group study visits hosted by people who have made/are making energy-saving improvements to their homes. Seeing is believing. We want as many people to learn about energy-efficient homes as possible. The first event of 2024 will be in February.

So this is a real ‘spade-in-the-ground’ learning opportunity for anyone interested in making homes more energy efficient. Philippa is having significant energy saving measures fitted to this 1960s house, and they are part of the way through the refurbishment, which means that at this Green Doors event you will be able to see:How to achieve continuous insulation for maximum improvement in thermal performanceUnder-floor heating going inHow to insulate a loft hatch with a loft ladder presentHow to use recycled steel in a refurbishment, reducing the overall emissions of the projectThe importance of insulating pipework that distributes hot water to radiators, and how to do itYou will be able to learn from Philippa’s experience of measures such as insulation, heating systems, solar plus battery. You will also learn from Philippa’s deep thinking about which energy saving measures will give the greatest return on carbon savings, for the most modest investment of money and time.You will also be able to learn from difficult previous experiences of poorly designed energy saving measures being done to the house several years ago, such as insulation to the loft and walls.We have several slots available for you to come along.
