CHEESE at Penhill – Warm Homes project at the Community Cafe

Tuesday 26th February, 1-3pm at John Moulton Hall, Penhill Drive, Swindon SN2 5DU.

The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) was at the Penhill community cafe to share the results of the CHEESE thermal image surveys taken from inside a couple of Penhill properties. The findings were discussed as well as ways to reduce fuel bills / conserve energy. Discussion was had as well about how to facilitate that for the local community.

Draught-proofing is the most important and cost effective way to save energy in most houses – cold air leaking in through small cracks can replace the warm air in a room or house quite quickly. But finding where the cold air is coming in can be challenging. There is a lot more that can be done. Spreading information is a big part of the process of change.

CHEESE (Cold Homes Energy Efficiency Survey Experts) was started by someone I know in Bristol and has helped many homes in many areas of Bristol. They have a number of trained surveyors with the camera/software kit, and charging a small amount to people can afford it helps fund free surveys for people who can’t. The person who did the two Penhill surveys will be there to explain more.
