  • 1 - A Better Built House

    The highly insulated walls, roofs and ground floors - keep the cold air out and warm air in. Unpleasant drafts are a thing of the past and soundproofing is improved to reduce disturbance. The result is greater year-round temperature efficiency at lower cost and consuming less CO2.

    2 - Improved Air Quality (MVHR)

    Highly efficient mechanical ventilation and heat recovery systems can ensure that your house benefits from a continuous supply of fresh, warm or cool filtered air, almost like having your own climate control. The system automatically takes out old stale air and lets in fresh air. And it's silent and almost invisible, just a small fixture on the ceiling, but no large extractor fans and no noise.

    3 - Consistent Indoor Temperatures

    Heating is sometimes provided via a highly efficient air source heat pump which provides both heat - underfloor heating and radiators - and hot water. Once set to your preferred temperature, individual room thermostats ensure a constant temperature at greatly reduced heating costs and CO2. Controls and maintenance are similar to a gas boiler, but the benefits in cost saving and comfort are much superior.
