At our next social we will hear from three households who have recently completed home retrofit works.This is a great chance to ask questions and get to the nitty gritty of what it's like to research and commission home retrofit works.

The households

John and Pauline have retrofitted their 1930's semi to EnerPHit standards, with very high levels of airtightness, EWI, triple glazing and MVHR. A driving concern has been the creation of a demonstration project to tackle climate change in old houses, and to convert the house to make it suitable for their retirement.  They will continue to record energy usages, temperature and humidity and will make the data available to interested parties.
