English Heritage has developed a website called Climate Change and Your Home for anyone who lives in or owns an older house to help them understand more about the potential impacts of climate change. The site also offers advice on how to save energy in an older house.
The website brings together much of English Heritage's expertise and specialist guidance on climate change, in a clear and easily digestible way. The information can be tailored to the age and location of your house.
The site offers specific, as well as generic, advice on how homes of different periods or construction types might behave in a changing climate, for instance wetter winters and hotter summers. It also gives advice on what you can do to improve the energy efficiency of your home in ways sympathetic to its historic character.
