Eco-homes workshop: Insulating your home

January 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

An eco-homes workshop organised by Transition Chesterfield, and Derbyshire Climate Coalition

With Graham Truscott, Dave Warren and Alastair Meikle

The UK has a poorly insulated building stock, which is responsible for a significant fraction of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. Out of a total housing stock of around 27 million, 71% or 19 million homes in the UK are considered to have low energy efficiency (an EPC rating below C).  The UK is ranked worst overall of 16 European countries across a range of housing and fuel poverty indicators.

If you want to reduce your carbon emissions and keep your energy bills low, installing insulation or draught-proofing will reduce heat loss. There are many simple yet effective ways to insulate your home, which can significantly reduce heat loss while lowering your heating bills.

Three owners from across Derby and Derbyshire who have installed different types of insulation in their homes, including external insulation, internal wall insulation, and loft insulation will talk about their experiences and answer any questions.  These include the type of insulation, how much it costs, how easy it was to install, and the pros and cons.
