Insulation Installation

ENERGY EFFICIENCY MONTH

FEBRUARY 2022

Insulating our homes can play a massive part in reducing climate change, ensuring our homes are healthy and comfortable and of course lowering our energy bills. However, there are a vast number of options and products on the market at the moment, many of which aren't suitable for period homes. 

Throughout February 2022, we will be hosting a range of practical courses, CPI sessions, and in person and online knowledge share workshops all with the aim of helping homeowners, and professions understand how a period home can be effectively insulated.

Course dates can be found below and more will be added once we have details. 

Practical Courses

Our practical courses will give you not only the theory behind the products, but plenty of practical experience of their application. Whether you are a homeowner who wants to tackle their own projects, a builder looking to up skill, or a professional looking to gain practical knowledge, you will leave the course feeling confident in choosing materials and understanding their application.
