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.
In Hackney Central lives Dave Raval in his 1870s Victorian 4 storey town house which features water based underfloor heating, a 1500L rainwater tank and a wormery which has left previous visitors fascinated. Dave has been passionate about the environment since a teen and retrofitted his home to demonstrate that anyone can turn a home with poor environmental standards into one that produces and consumes clean energy.
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.
