Warmer Homes Webinars

Warmer Homes Webinars

As part of next week’s Reading Climate Festival, the Warmer Homes Group is giving two webinars on creating warmer homes and preparing buildings for low carbon heating.

Creating warmer homes Tuesday 21 September 1200 -1300

UK homes are more poorly insulated than any other housing stock in Europe relative to its climate with a rate of replacement less than 1% per annum. So it makes sense to create warmer homes to improve health of occupants whilst at the same time reducing carbon emissions.

A range of measures for creating warmer homes will be described, many of which cost very little compared with the benefits. Sources of help and advice and availability of various grants will also be discussed. There will be an opportunity for posing questions during the webinar

Preparing buildings for low carbon heating Friday 24 September 1000 – 1100

As gas boilers will be phased out from 2025 onwards, it makes economic sense to prepare buildings for low carbon heating now for both new build and existing buildings. The topics discussed will include restoring the efficiency of existing radiator systems, retrofitting insulation and the type of hot water storage. The availability of various grants will also be discussed and how these can be accessed. There will be an opportunity for posing questions during the webinar
