SuperHome Open Days – September 2013

Visit the UK homes most improved for energy use

SuperHome Open Days this September let you get the inside story on some exceptional home improvement projects. These are older homes refurbished by their owners to be amongst the most energy efficient older homes in the UK. In every SuperHome you can learn about a range of installed technologies. Tours and Q&A sessions let you quiz the owners on specifics. You’ll discover what worked and get frank feedback on anything that didn’t. If your goal is increased home comfort, reduced energy bills or a smaller carbon footprint, a visit is sure to inspire.

Entry is free.
