Low energy retrofits

Dated: 01/03/2012

Warmer homes logoGreen Building Store is teaming up with our local Transition Towns group MASTT (Marsden & Slaithwate Transition Towns) to produce useful resources and demonstration models to help homeowners through the low energy retrofit maze. The community group has received funding from DECC’s LEAF project and Green Building Store will be using our expertise in ultra low energy Passivhaus design and construction to focus on retrofit strategies for typical hard-to-treat properties in the Colne Valley, West Yorkshire. We will look at energy efficiency strategies for a range of budgets, applying Passivhaus principles and ‘whole house’ approaches.

The research and findings for this will culminate in a 2-day ‘Warmer Homes’ festival in Slaithwaite on 24 – 25 March 2012.
