Transition Homes

Ealing Transition member Dora has started a fabulous blog  “West London Transition Homes” where she aims to collect and collate information helpful to those wanting to radically upgrade the energy efficiency of their homes, and has started with some great posts about the Varszegi family’s PassivHaus retrofit of their own ex-local authority 1930s semi in South Ealing.

The Varszegi’s now use 90% less gas than before the refit, and haven’t used the central heating for 18 months, but their home is a constant and comfortable 22°C! It’s almost certainly the most energy efficient home in West London.

See this month’s Ealing Council “Around Ealing” article for an interview with Dora, and visit the “West London Transition Homes” blog for more information.
