Duns Tew Village Hall

Energy efficiency in the village hall

Duns Tew Village Hall, originally built in 1870 as a schoolhouse before becoming the village hall, serves as a bustling hub for various activities each week. From yoga sessions to band practices.

Because of the age of the building, the hall commissioned an energy assessment to explore ways to reduce energy bills, increase comfort, and cut carbon emissions. The assessment suggested several improvements that could lead to a significant 82% drop in carbon emissions per year.

The Village Hall decided to act on the recommendations (PDF copy of the action report) such as installing double glazing to reduce draughts and heat loss. They also upgraded their lighting to energy-efficient LEDs, reducing energy use and maintenance costs.

Recognising the benefits of a more sustainable heating system, the Village Hall replaced their old oil boiler with a new air source heat pump. This change not only improved comfort but also significantly lowered carbon emissions.

Additionally, the Village Hall decided to replace its old, leaky roof with a new insulated one. Although not initially recommended in the energy assessment, this decision further reduced energy waste.
