Do you know how much heat your house, room or flat may be losing through gaps and cracks in the building?

For little or no money you could make your home more comfortable, cheaper to run and reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating unwanted draughts.

This workshop, led by Aneaka Kellay from Carbon Co-op, will cover the basics of how heat is lost in a home, how to find leaks and how to fix them with different draught-proofing techniques. It will also look at the risks and issues around moisture management and ventilation.

“The course provides a good mix of understanding how to spot draughts, plus practical techniques and products to reduce them” – Natalie, 2018

For: Homeowners, renters, and students looking to make their homes warmer on a budget. No prior experience needed.

Would you like to gain more in-depth knowledge and help others? On the same day, wrapped around this session, we’re running a full day training for draught-busting, Energy Champions keen to share their skills.

Trainer: Aneaka Kellay has over ten years of experience working in environmental organisations and co-operatives, and has a masters in Environmental Politics. Carbon Co-op is an energy services and advocacy co-op that has established itself at the cutting edge of community response to the climate crisis, not least with its award-winning programme of householder-led retrofit.
