Carbon Co-op Info Night: Heating and Ventilation

*Note venue change

Many of our members have questions about heating systems and ventilation - what works? What is suitable for different house types? How do heating systems and ventilation interact?

Our approach to retrofit is fabric first - but what is second? Thinking through the way we heat and ventilate our homes is essential to effective whole house retrofit, and ensuring that we are warm and have good indoor air quality.

Older homes were built to be draughty as a way of managing damp and indoor air quality, but that makes them cold and expensive to heat. As we draught proof our homes and make them warm and cosy, having a ventilation strategy that is compatible with our heating strategy and the building's fabric becomes increasingly important.

We will be joined by three professionals with different areas of expertise: Peter King (Aereco, Ventilation Manufacturer), Richard Shears (Snug Spaces, Heating Engineer), and Jim Wild (LEDA, Building Services Engineer).

Speakers will present drawing on their expertise in whole house building design, heating system installation and ventilation system design. To get the warmed up and focused on what you want to know about, please post your questions on social media ahead of the event.

Food will be provided. Booking is essential.
