The National Energy Foundation’s SuperHomes Open Days is celebrating its 10th year. SuperHomes are older homes which their owners have renovated to achieve at least 60% less carbon emissions. The free events help inspire home owners to make their homes greener and eco-friendly.
De Beauvoir Town is home to Robert Cohen and Bronwen Manby’s 1830s mid terrace 4 storey home which features a variety of insulation measures to keep it airtight, in fact, their house is so energy efficient that they receive negative energy bills from the energy produced by their solar PV.
As Robert is an energy consultant, it’s unsurprising that he’s obsessed with the households energy use, he’s even co-authored two papers about the design and operational performance of the house.
Take a tour of a SuperHome and you will come away with a number of energy saving tips for your own home. You can also expect to hear first-hand from the owners of their journey to becoming a SuperHomer and honest reviews of the process of improving your home sustainably.
The free events are co-ordinated by the National Energy Foundation and as it’s their 10th year they have more SuperHomes open across the country this September than ever before. To pre-book a free tour head over to www.superhomes.org.uk.
