Retrofitting Homes for a Zero Carbon Future
Come and hear from our guest speakers how buildings can be retrofitted to improve their thermal efficiency, in order to reduce carbon emissions and save money.
Tuesday April 28, 2020, 19.00 - 21.00
Harrogate Ladies College
Harrogate, HG1 2QG
Older buildings, even those built just a few years ago, can be very inefficient when it comes to energy conservation. A lack of insulation in roofs, walls and windows means the energy used to heat a building can also leak out very easily. That combined with elderly lighting systems and ageing boilers can make for very high carbon emissions, not to mention costs.
Our guest speakers will explain how an existing building can be retrofitted to improve its thermal efficiency.
