Eco Open Houses Online

For many, September is the start of the 'heating season'.

With energy prices rising, this is a good time to think about how you can:

• Make your home more efficient

• Healthier to live in

• Reduce your fuel bills

• Reduce your carbon emissions and help to tackle climate change.

To help you with this, Eco Open Houses Online is a series of virtual events, resources and a retrofit course.

The events will run from Monday 20th to Friday 1st October.

For more details visit Eco Open Houses Online on the Low Carbon Trust's website

We are always looking out for houses or buildings to showcase in our events, built or renovated to a high standard of environmental performance.
If you would like to be involved in any future events, 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.

You may be interested in finding out more about what you could do to your house. Have a look at the Eco Renovate Your Home course and some of the possible funding options outlined in Links.
