Eco Open Houses
Our next event will be held on the weekends October 21st-22nd and 28th-29th 2017.
We are always looking out for houses or buildings to showcase in the event, built or renovated to a high standard of environmental performance.
If you would like to be involved in the 2017 event, either opening your house or building, or as a volunteer, please contact us.
What is Eco Open Houses?
Whether you are a home owner or tenant wanting to find out what you can do in your home to save money and feel healthier and warmer, a builder looking for better ways to build for your clients or just simply curious, come and be inspired by visiting an eco-home near you!
Some Eco Open Houses are old houses that have been retrofitted and improved, some have just been built. What they feature in common is being cheaper to run and requiring less mains energy to keep them warm.
It doesn't necessarily take expensive renovation to cut bills: behaviour changes and small alterations can make a big difference. Discover practical steps to reduce energy use, water use and carbon emissions in our own homes from the experiences of Eco Open Householders. Funding options to help you renovate your home are described in Ways to pay.
