Energy Savings

1. Reduce Demand

We offer a “Fabric First” design, which prioritizes the performance of the building envelope above all. This means that energy demand is greatly reduced compared with the average home and translates as a huge saving in energy bills. It also means that you have the security of a warm, comfortable home no matter what the future holds. If every house was built like this then fuel poverty and winter deaths would be eradicated.


Here’s how we achieve it:



A thick, continuous layer of insulation prevents the heat from transmitting through the walls, floor and roof.


Air Tightness

A continuous airtight layer prevents warm air escaping through holes in the building fabric and protects the structure from condensation water damage.


Triple Glazing

The highest performance windows are installed so that the minimum amount of heat transmits through glazing and frame.


Solar Gain

The orientation and sizing of the windows is optimized so that solar heat gain is maximized against heat losses on cold days. Good daylighting levels reduce the need for electric lighting.


Heat Recovery

A ventilation heat recovery system is installed, which uses the heat from the kitchen and bathrooms to preheat the air supplied to the other rooms.




2. Energy Efficiency

The most efficient design means that savings are made every day and you get the most out of your Eco Home. Not only are we dedicated to providing the most energy efficient products and systems, but we also invest in maximizing the efficiency of the installation through careful construction detailing and first class workmanship.


Here’s how we achieve it:


Water Saving

Features such as aerated taps and low flush WCs mean that savings are made on both your energy bill and your water bill.


Plant Equipment

All of the mechanical products we install from the hot water tank to the heat recovery unit are selected for their energy efficiency. The design is optimized for the shortest runs of ductwork and piping. Further efficiency is achieved by strict installation techniques and by insulating the mechanical systems to prevent heat losses at penetrations to the outside or at the wrong place within the home.



Energy efficient lighting is installed throughout to save electricity. Where desired, movement sensors ensure that lights are on only when they need to be and no power is wasted.


White Goods

All white goods such as the fridge and washing machine achieve an A or A+ rating.




3. Low Carbon Technologies

Electricity and heat production at the home means more independence and less reliance on energy companies. It means peace of mind that you can generate some if not all of the hot water, electricity and heating that you need to live comfortably, protected from any price hikes or distribution problems. It also means that although the technologies are expensive at the outset, you save money in the long run while adding value to your home. If enough electricity is produced, you can even sell back to the grid.


Here’s how we achieve it:


Solar Thermal Panels

Harnessing the free supply of heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water.


Photovoltaic Panels

Generating electrical power by converting solar radiation into electricity.


Heat Pumps

Ground and air source heat pumps use the refrigeration process to transfer low grade energy outside into high grade energy used for heating and hot water.




4. Lifestyle

Energy saving is woven into the design through features which are integrated with your lifestyle, so that you are the important key to unlocking the high standard of energy saving that you desire.


Home Office

The flexibility of working from home has numerous benefits including the energy saved on transport as well as heating and power overheads.



An internal clothes drying space works to minimize or even eliminate the need for tumble drying, resulting in significant energy savings.


Bike Store

A secure, dry place to store bikes means that it is more convenient to forego the use of a car more often, saving money and resources and reducing pollution of the environment.
