For homeowners residing in older properties seeking to transform their homes into energy-efficient, healthy, and environmentally-friendly spaces, The Home Upgrade Show is the ultimate destination. This event is a key component of Greater Manchester’s inaugural Retrofit Action Week and will take place at the historic Victoria Baths in Manchester on the 13th and 14th of October.
At The Home Upgrade Show, homeowners will discover the possibilities for their homes, receive personalised advice, and gain the confidence to make informed decisions. Over 50 manufacturers, suppliers, installers, and experts will be present, offering services and products designed to make homes cozier, cost-effective to run, and more eco-conscious. Experts will be on hand to provide guidance on energy-efficient measures, including insulation, high-quality double-glazing, and basic draught-proofing.
The trend of upgrading homes with energy-efficient measures is gaining momentum as people grapple with the reality of rising energy costs. Residents of Greater Manchester and beyond will benefit from this unique opportunity to meet numerous experts, all gathered in one place, with a shared focus on safely and effectively enhancing the energy efficiency of older homes.
Advance tickets for the event are free, making it an invaluable local opportunity to receive personalised advice about your home and discover ways to reduce heat loss.
A dedicated section of the show will be dedicated to cleaner, greener heating solutions. The Heat Pump Federation will lead workshops, and a Heat Pump Clinic will provide advice on transitioning away from fossil fuels and making heating systems more cost-effective.
British Gas, a leader in home energy solutions, is partnering with Low Carbon Homes to support Retrofit Action Week (RAW). The week will commence with a Green Open Homes event on Saturday, 7th October, organised by People Powered Retrofit. This event enables people to visit retrofitted properties across Manchester and engage with homeowners who have experienced the benefits of living in energy-efficient homes.
While energy prices have seen a slight decrease since their peak in 2022, they remain significantly higher than they were in 2020 and are unlikely to return to those levels in the near future. Additionally, wildfires and extreme weather events serve as stark reminders that the climate crisis persists. Investing in measures to protect your household budget and home from future shocks is a wise decision.
“We’ve assembled a unique gathering of experts, local and national businesses and community organisations all eager to support homeowners on their path towards greener, healthier and better homes. It will be an enjoyable, inspirational and sociable event for all attendees – and set in the easy-to-reach historic Victoria Baths venue,” concludes event organiser Graham Lock, founder of Low Carbon Homes.
