Northern Homebuilding & Renovating Show will advise on saving energy bills as energy price hikes continue
With the anticipated energy price hikes predicted to put upwards of 10 million people into fuel poverty, the Northern Homebuilding & Renovating Show (4-6 November 2022 at the Harrogate Convention Centre) is gearing up to provide practical guidance to visitors on improving energy efficiency and home heating.
The latest energy price cap will increase by 77 per cent on 1 October to over £3,500 and will rise even further next January. This means British people will see a £1,500 a year hike in bills, which is likely to prove catastrophic for many.
The Northern Homebuilding & Renovating Show, sponsored by Korniche, will offer visitors seminars and masterclasses to offer guidance on how they can make the most of the energy in their homes, save money on bills and reduce their carbon footprint. During the Home Energy Hour, industry leaders in home heating efficiency will be talking on topics including how to retrofit and upgrade the heating in older homes, choosing a replacement boiler, effective draft proofing, secondary glazing and more.
Show goers wanting individual advice can Ask the Expert on how to save money on bills. Visitors can talk to eco-expert David Hilton, who will de-mystify heat pumps, and Paul Testa, director of HEM architects, will be on hand to impart his knowledge on low energy solutions and other affordable and viable options.
As well as providing a chance to find out about innovations in new and energy-efficient heating technologies to tackle fuel poverty, the show will allow visitors to experience thousands of products from over 220 exhibitors.
Experts in the Masterclass and Seminar Theatres will also present on topics ranging from managing your own project efficiently and successfully to getting planning permission, and timber frame design and build systems.
The Advice Centre will provide opportunities to book free one-on-one sessions with other property experts, architects, planners and builders including Michael Holmes, director of Content, Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine; Jason Orme, managing director of Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine; Allan Corfield, design expert, Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine; Sally Tagg, planning expert, Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine, and Tom McSherry, finance expert from Buildstore.
