TTL have undertaken a number of initiatives to support and educate Letchworth residents on how to reduce the energy they use. TTL also encourage and promote local generation of renewable energy. TTL try to influence and respond to government, Council and Heritage Foundation initiatives which have local energy implications.
In 2014 a series of Home Energy Improvers meetings were held for people keen to reduce their household energy consumption. Attendees learned and shared knowledge about domestic energy efficiency. Hints, tips, lessons learnt and contacts were all exchanged in a bid to empower Letchworth householders to make improvements to their homes and shrink their utility bills. The learning from these events is captured in a series of presentations and can be shared at suitable events.
TTL have a FLIR E6 thermal imaging camera which was funded by a Heritage Foundation grant. Thermal imagers can be used to detect heat loss from your home, helping you identify where to target home improvements to reduce your energy bills. Ideally the temperature difference between inside your home and the outside should be at least 10 degree to get the best results, so autumn and winter is the ideal time to inspect your house with a thermal camera. Our thermal imager training material provides useful background material.
