York Open Eco Homes

16 - 17 May 2015

Eco = ecological = economical. Find out how to turn your house into a comfortable and efficient home from people who have done it! Visit living demonstrations of energy saving measures. Be inspired: take a closer look at draught-proofing, solar panels, insulation, low energy lighting, edible gardens and many other ways to make homes cosier and cheaper to run. Get independent advice on how to give your own home an eco makeover. You can look at the individual homes via these pages or download the event flier with addresses on from bit.ly/2015YOEHleaflet
