The Art of Retrofitting
Wed 18 January 2017, 19:30 – 21:30 GMT
Do you want to feel warm without feeling guilty about the cost of heating your home, as well as your carbon footprint? Mukti Mitchell of the CosyHome Company explains how retrofitting brings traditional homes up to modern standards of thermal efficiency and explains how it is done in each area of lofts, draughts, glazing, walls and doors, as well as presenting the subtle and elegant secondary CosyGlazing specially developed for listed and period homes.
Mukti will draw on examples, including a 100% retrofitted Grade II listed town house in Cotham to explain the specific characteristics of Bristol’s Victorian homes, as well as other styles of property, looking at the requirements and benefits to be expected from insulation.
Mukti is author of the booklet ‘The Guide to Low Carbon Lifestyles’ and in 2005 designed and built a zero emission microyacht.
After Mukti’s talk there will be brief updates on thermal imaging energy surveys and MakeyourhomeEco courses, including a short taster session.
