Site Design

Find out how we put our site together here...


2011 Site Revamp

Homemicro.co.uk had a site revamp for 2011. All areas of the site – LZC – CAD – PC – now share a common style.


2009 Site Revamp

Homemicro.co.uk had a site revamp 10th January 2009 with the purpose of being:

A resource on low and zero carbon technologies such as solar and wind energy, providing independent advice and tips to help with the planning and design of these technologies.

Also on this site will be general HVAC information; design notes and tips on domestic water, heating, ventilation and other mechanical building services subjects. Our CAD pages compliment both the LZC & HVAC subject areas.

Bites is our section where we will post any relevant snippets such as news articles which are not covered by our guides.

Finally our links page will link you to the best of the low carbon champions on the web, as well as our favourite sites on LZC, HVAC and CAD. Come back soon and see how we are developing...
