What: At Latch (Leeds Action to Create Homes) they’re aiming to make housing warm and affordable to heat, lifting tenants out of fuel poverty and reducing carbon emissions. Join them for a tour of the back-to-back terraced house they are currently refurbishing and learn about the measures they’re taking to make it warm, comfortable and affordable to live in.
Latch commissioned Andy Walker from Sure Insulation CIC and Jonathan Lindh from Leeds Environmental Design Associates to develop and document an affordable and practical system for improving the thermal performance of Victorian terraced housing and have now superinsulated 5 homes.
Latch obtained funding through Leeds Community Foundation and Nationwide Foundation to pilot a Celotex solid wall insulation system on a house in East End Park that they’re currently refurbishing. The work is being monitored by Leeds Sustainability Institute to determine the actual energy savings achieved.
This tour will take you around the house, showing the measures that they’re installing and explaining the approach. Measures include triple glazing, internal wall, underfloor and room-in-roof insulation and high performance doors.
Please note that the refurbishment works are still in progress so you will actually be able to see the insulation. Please wear suitable shoes and clothing. For your safety, no work will be in progress during the tour. The house is in East End Park and they will email you with the address beforehand so make sure to register on eventbrite here.
