Bookings open for SuperHome Open Days, Sep 2014

London SuperHome owned by Jurgen Huber and Zoe Allen

Jurgen Huber and Zoe Allen’s London home – amongst those opening for the first time in September

Bookings are now open for SuperHome Open Days this September. 60 homes are confirmed to open. These homes have all been renovated to the highest standards of comfort and energy efficiency by their owners.

As each renovation achieved a carbon saving of at least 60% (the SuperHome standard) these rank amongst the UK homes most improved for energy use . Visting one will therefore provide many great ideas for greening your own home.

In every SuperHome you can learn about a range of installed technologies. You’ll get the chance to quiz the owner about the pros and cons of particular approaches or measures. Most owners offer tours and/or Q&A sessions.

There are Victorian, Edwardian or more modern SuperHomes opening in September, making it easier to find a house like your own to visit.

If your goal is increased home comfort, reduced energy bills or a smaller carbon footprint, a visit is sure to inspire. Entry is free.

Here are 5 reasons to visit SuperHomes we hope you’ll share. Hitting the ‘like’ or ‘tweet’ button at the bottom could do the job if you are a fan of social media.
