Beginner’s Guide to Retrofit and Heat Camera training (in person) (Carbon Coop)

Join us for a hands-on, in-person training session on retrofit and heat camera basics – perfect for householders interested in retrofit.

Welcome to the Beginner’s Guide to Retrofit and Heat Camera training!

Join us at Station South Cycle Cafe Levenshulme for an in-person event where you’ll learn all about the basics of retrofitting and using heat cameras (cameras that help you visualise heat).

We will help you establish a basic understanding of eco-renovation and how you might go about planning to make your home warmer, more comfortable and that little bit greener whilst reducing bills.

We’ll discuss both DIY and contractor-led approaches, this is very much a starting point for retrofit rather than an in-depth discussion of the technical aspects but we will be introducing a new support programme with follow on training and assistance.

We’ll end the session with a hands-on, heat camera exercise contractor-led. Spotting gaps, draughts and sources of heat loss in the cafe building.

Suitable for people thinking about or actively planning retrofit improvements.

Less suitable for social housing tenants who are reliant on their housing provider to make these changes.

Complimentary refreshments will be available from the cafe!

his event is part of Energise Manchester, a 2 year programme of advice, support and assistance delivered by Carbon Co-op in partnership with People Powered Retrofit, to help people in South Manchester plan and carry out energy improvements to their homes.

Energise Manchester is part of the Local Energy Advice Demonstrator programme, funded by the UK Government Department for Energy Security and Net Zero.
