Climate Change and Your Home is a customizable web tool created by English Heritage that provides information on climate change, sustainability, and the UK’s government legislation on saving energy.


Climate Change and Your Home website.

While much of the site’s information is applicable to any historic home in England, it is also customizable for “traditionally built homes”: homes built with solid wall or timber frame construction and that use semi-permeable building materials.  Unlike modern homes, built with materials to keep moisture out, traditional homes will absorb and release moisture–when provided with adequate ventilation–with little or no damage.  To customize the site, users select their region, home age, type and sub-type.  Once a house type is chosen, specific information on impacts is added to the site.
