Is it costing you a bomb to stay warm this winter or are you wearing a beanie and puffer jacket in your living room? It doesn't have to be this way. A well-insulated and draft proofed home will be a more comfortable home. An energy efficient home will use less energy to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer, reduce your energy costs, and your environmental impact.

At our August meeting learn how to improve the thermal performance of your home from hands-on energy efficiency experts, Maurice and Michael Beinat from EcoMaster. Charlie Phillips from the Earthworker Smart Energy Cooperative will also provide advice on smart energy measures. The focus of this evening is on practical steps you can take to make your home more comfortable and reduce your energy use.

EcoMaster is an industry leader on all things thermal energy efficiency. The Beinats will talk about insulation (underfloor, ceiling and wall insulation) and draught proofing and will have insulation material for you to touch and feel.

There will be ample opportunity for audience questions.
