Old House Eco Handbook is a companion volume to the authors' highly successful Old House Handbook published in association with the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB). It seeks to answer the questions homeowners and others are asking about how to make old houses - medieval and timberframed Georgian Victorian or Edwardian terraces - energy-efficient and sustainable. The refurbishment or 'retrofitting' of old houses to meet new requirements into the future is now high on the Government's agenda. Old houses are by their nature a sustainable asset: their refurbishment is becoming a priority as attempts are made to address millions of energy-sapping poorly insulated and far from airtight homes. Energy-efficiency in particular is vital to cut carbon emissions a major contributor to global warming. How should we go about this without devaluing future sustainability or the appeal and character of old homes by the use of inappropriate solutions? Old House Eco Handbook sets out to provide the answers. The SPAB at the forefront of research into old house energy-efficiency is the ideal partner for this book.
