We all focus on insulation and stopping draughts in the energy efficiency advice we give, as the best way to reduce energy use at home. But an argument we often get is that insulation and draught-proofing create problems with condensation and poor air quality. Ventilation is a mystery to most of us - and energy efficient ventilation even more so, So how do we reduce heat loss and still provide good air quality and fresh air in homes?

Mark Thompson runs energy efficiency blog Get Energy Savvy and is an expert on indoor air quality and smart ventilation. Mark will give a 10 minute presentation on the options available to homeowners and the possibilities for retrofit and energy efficiency in ventilation.

Colm Watling is a Retrofit Co-ordinator with extensive social housing experience, and particularly in dealing with the problems of condensation, damp and mould. He will present some case studies demonstrating problems and solutions from his work in social housing.
