Open Eco Homes 2015

Lifting_solar_water_heater - carefully does itOn Saturday 19th and Sunday 27th September 2015 up to 18 exciting low-energy  homes, both new-build and retro-fit, will be open to the public for Open Eco Homes. Householders will show and explain the energy-saving features of their homes – the pros and cons and how to get the best out of them to save on energy bills and carbon emissions.

Now in its sixth year, the annual Open Eco Homes event aims to inform and inspire visitors to improve the energy efficiency of their own homes or choose very efficient new ones.  The homes demonstrate a wide range of eco-renovation technologies, from underfloor heating to wood burners, all kinds of insulation and condensing boilers, right through to green roofs, gardens and waterbutts.

Here are case studies of previous Open Eco Homes with details of their energy-saving features.  Watch out for the list of Open Eco Homes 2015 to be announced in the summer.
