A Hands-on Experience
As you walk around REEP House, you will have the chance to put your hands inside walls, analyse the competing data and quality of installed products, learn about the REEP House retrofit design strategy and ask plenty of questions. REEP House is all about helping you find solutions for improving your own home or building.
We explore the significance of insulating and sealing the envelope, look at options for improving the quality of your home’s heat and water use, and have a free-flowing discussion of some things we learned during the retrofitting process.
