SuperHome Open Day in High Wycombe
Posted by : the National Energy Foundation
A pioneering owner of one of the UK’s most eco-friendly SuperHomes is hosting free tours on Friday 9 September.
SuperHomes are homes refurbished by their owners for greater comfort, lower bills and fewer carbon emissions - at least 60 per cent less!
Ivan Cicin-Sain’s 1968 detached property on The Brackens is now 61 per cent less carbon intensive than before it was refurbished. Improvements include roof, loft and cavity wall insulation, double glazing, solar PV and water butts in the garden. All the lighting is low-energy and most appliances have gradually been replaced with the most efficient ones. Any surplus solar electricity generated is diverted to an immersion heater to provide hot water. As well as upgrading the house Ivan has invested in a hybrid car.
Full details including directions will be provided when you register your interest. Visitors can expect to come away with plenty of ideas for greening their own properties. For more info and to book a free tour, please visit www.superhomes.org.uk/113
