Routes to Retrofit Seminars - Spring 2016

Are you feeling the cold, want to make energy efficiency improvements on your home but confused about how to go about it?

Luckily, this spring we are running another series of seminars in Manchester for householders on Planning and Delivering Energy Efficiency Retrofit works.
