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 purchased a thermal imaging camera with the help of a Heritage Foundation grant. Thermal imagers can be used to detect heat loss from your home. We run training sessions covering how to operate the camera and ideas on how to get the most information from an energy efficiency survey of your home using the camera (click here to view the training material). After attending a training session you will be able to borrow the camera to look at your home. Training sessions will run throughout the winter and dates can be found in our online calendar. 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 do a survey. If this sounds of interest to you, please get in touch via our contact page.
