A record number of visitors gained inspiration from our sixth Green Open Homes event to make their own homes more sustainable. Despite the wet November weather, 150 visits were made over two weekend days to eight homes in Muswell Hill, Crouch End, Alexandra Park, Tottenham and Highgate.
Showcasing state-of-the-art insulation, draughtproofing and renewable energy systems, visitors heard first hand from householders how to make eco improvements, recommendations of reliable suppliers and installers (see our ‘Green installers’ page for contacts), and tips on budgeting.
Student TV journalists Sarah Higgs and Petrana Zemanova from City University filmed tours at two MHSG members’ homes, showing how changes to different house styles can reap big carbon and money cuts.
