Open Eco Homes tours - September 22nd and 28th

On the 22nd and 28th September 2019 we will be opening a dozen homes across Cambridge for FREE tours. All tours have to be booked and bookings open in August. The homes are the best eco new-builds and renovations in Cambridge. Hosts show you around for one hour and you get the benefit of all their knowledge and experience, and to see with your own eyes how eco-technologies and ideas work in practice.

Each home has been built or renovated to deliver low energy living so there is an emphasis on insulation, energy conservation and efficiency and renewable heat and electricity production. The houses quite often include interesting design features and have been built or renovated for beauty, comfort and good living. So as well as the eco inspiration you get a lot of home love ideas too.

Thermal imaging training - November

Thermal Imaging workshops start again in November

Thermal imaging can vividly show where your home is leaking heat, revealing problems with insulation, draughts, etc. Come to a training evening to learn how to use our thermal cameras and interpret their images - then you can borrow a camera to survey your home. Significant improvements in comfort, energy bills and carbon emissions often result.

Keep up to date with our events by signing up to our mailing list.

We will only email you relevant information about Open Eco Home events.
