Is Winter Getting to You? New Ideas to Make Your House Warmer and Cheaper to Heat

Since Sustainable Living in the Heatons ran its Climate Action Festival in September there has been a flurry of announcements from Government, the Greater Manchester Authorities, and businesses. How we heat, ventilate and insulate homes is set to change. Expect more announcements in the build up to the forthcoming Global Conference on Climate Change in Glasgow in late 2021. It has the name COP 26.

Government has started to make big plans for us as householders. For example, new homes will no longer be allowed to instal gas boilers using North Sea Gas from as soon as 2023!

With this in mind, if you are looking for ideas about to make your house warmer and cheaper to heat or want to know more about the initiatives that will make our homes greener over the next few years then you are invited to join our Zoom discussion on Weds 13 January, at 8pm. This will be led by local experts in property and climate change. Registration is by emailing greenhomes@slheatons.org. It will be practical and answer questions about heating, insulation and the green homes grant scheme as well as what we know already about the plans being made for us at a local and national level.
