Haddenham in Transition is launching a free Air Tightness Testing Project to dramatically improve draught-proofing of local homes and reduce fuel bills.
The project is delivered by trained volunteers using air tightness testing equipment to quickly and effectively identify drafts and areas of heat loss, offering draught proofing advice. Household spending 10% of their income on heating costs are prioritised for this service.
The group is looking for volunteers to help with this project, to work on occasional Saturday afternoons. Volunteers will be trained by the Haddenham in Transition experts.
