The tour of the Warm Up Bristol show home will include those who are taking part in this year’s Make Your Home Eco course from Totterdown Energy and Easton as well as a map of the area of the streets that have been insulated.
At the Warm Up Bristol show home you will be able to see what energy saving measures can be installed in a Victorian-era mid-terrace property, such as underfloor insulation, new insulation to the bathroom roof space, internal wall insulation in the kitchen and bathroom and external wall insulation to the front and back of the property. There are also new double-glazed windows with humidity reactive trickle vents, a passive ventilation unit in the kitchen and bathroom and many simpler and cheaper to install measures including low flow taps and draught-proofing.
Easton Energy Groups will present a case study of the Green Deal Communities Scheme, including a short talk from a winning householder of the competition. These will look at the scheme in detail and will highlight why retrofitting our homes is important and along with the breakout discussion will look forwards to how communities can get the most benefit from the Warm Up Bristol initiative.
