A training manager at Mira Showers has opened his house up to show people how they can save energy.
Christian Wagner’s was one of a number of eco-friendly Gloucestershire homes opened to the public to show how to cut energy bills by up to 50%.
“I wanted to show that people can enjoy all the comforts that they are used to but cut energy bills and reduce the impact on the planet at the same time,” Wagner said.
The Eco Homes Open Day, which is part of the National Heritage Open Days and aims to show how a range of different technologies will shrink energy bills.
Modifications to Wagner’s house include rainwater harvesting, solar hot water and radio-controlled radiator valves. Rada aerated mixer taps in the bathroom are operated by infra-red sensors with pre-sets for both water temperature and flow. The shower also has a Mira Eco showerhead, which potentially saves up to 75% of the water that would be used by a conventional showerhead.
