Event description

Description

Sarah and Charlie are opening their home as a part of Carbon Co-op's Green Open Homes Weekend, 29th and 30th September 2018.

This Victorian semi has been retrofitted to deomstrate the energy saving potential of simple, effective improvements.

Sarah and Charlie have reduced the carbon emissions of this house by 85% by installing insulation to walls, floors and roof, triple glazing and draught proofing the sash windows and fitting a heating system that combines solar thermal with a log burning biomass boiler. Sustainable materials have been a priority, including the most durable and eventually recyclable kitchen they could design.

Sarah and Charlie think you should visit their home because:
We have lots of practical suggestions for insulating an old property, with measures installed over the last decade. We want to encourage as many visitors as possible!
