About this event

The NSBRC Guide to Managing your Energy Efficient Home

To be held as an in-person event at the Centre in Swindon.

WHY do I want an energy efficient home?

WHAT exactly is an energy efficient home?

WHICH products do I need?

WHEN do they get installed?

WHO puts them in?

There are so many options for heating and energy efficiency services in our homes today so where do you go for independent advice on what is right for you and your home?

This no-nonsense guide is presented by David Hilton who has a master’s degree in architecture and is also an experienced active heating and ventilation engineer, and cuts through the jargon, green-wash and sales hype to help you define what you need in your home, what products make sense and which trades put them in.

The online tutorials take you through the reasons why you may want to design and build an energy efficient home, the legislative and aspirational drivers and the calculations used to define the efficiency of a building. You will also be given the product options including traditional heating systems through to renewables and other emerging technologies and the context within which these systems are optimized. All of this then leaves you with a much better understanding of the options so that you can make informed decisions when it comes to specifying the products that are right for you and your home.

The practical element takes place in the plant room area at the NSBRC and demonstrates the workings of many of the systems described in the theory tutorials including Air source heat pumps, indirect heating systems, Mechanical ventilation Heat recovery (MVHR) systems, under floor heating, Radiator systems, flue gas heat recovery and infra-red radiant panels.

This is the course you didn’t know you needed – until now.

Organiser of The NSBRC Guide to Managing your Energy Efficient Home - April

The National Self Build & Renovation Centre (NSBRC) is run by The Homebuilding Centre Limited, an employee-owned business formed in 2014. 

The NSBRC has gone from strength to strength since the team of employee-owners took responsibility for this unique resource. Over the last 14 years the NSBRC has welcomed over 230,000 self builders through its doors, from first-time self and custom builders to developers, home improvers and renovators.

The team have invested heavily in the facility and in 2017 the NSBRC was named Wiltshire's 'Small Buisness of the Year' and has won several other awards.
