“Warmer homes” event on 29 February for Brightling and beyond – Brightling, East Sussex – village website

Warmer homes in Brightling and beyond

Please join us on Thursday 29 February at 7:00 pm in Brightling Village Hall for a helpful, informative and friendly evening looking at how to retrofit our local homes – particularly the many older buildings found in Brightling and neighbouring villages – to adapt to the future of home heating. In other words, how to stay warm, for less money and with less impact on the environment.

Our main speaker will be Joe Daly: architect, energy adviser and retrofit coordinator for Energise Sussex Coast (a not-for-profit community energy co-operative).

There will also be 3 short case studies from local people:

  • a local resident who installed an air source heat pump in an older property
  • a local resident who installed a ground source heat pump
  • a local resident who installed solar panels, batteries and now profits from surplus electricity

    PLUS a demonstration of the thermal imaging camera. The thermal imaging camera can provide a heat image of YOUR HOUSE showing where the heat is leaking out. After the demonstration, it will be possible to request a free thermal imaging visit to YOUR HOUSE (initially open to Brightling residents who come to the talk – limited availability).
