The Green Register has teamed up with Wolverhampton & District Society of Architects (WDSA) to present this evening talk on Eco-retrofit of historic dwellings. Green Register Director, Lucy Pedler, will take a close look at some of the issues raised when carrying out eco-retrofits to older houses including cost versus carbon savings. Using Georgian, Victorian and 20th century case studies, topics such as internal and external wall insulation, replacement windows, ventilation and moisture control and the thorny issue of homes in Conservation areas will be addresses with practical solutions demonstrated. Additionally, post occupancy data will be presented on the 1930's house to demonstrate the effectiveness of external insertion and thermal mass.
