Smart homeowners know that the only way to achieve real savings is by investing in energy saving measures which will deliver an energy-efficient home. Here we look at two scenarios – the new build and the existing home.
Starting with a clean slate and designing a new home offers the maximum potential in terms of freedom to develop an energy-efficient home. From the method of construction to the materials used and the renewable options available to power the home, the opportunities are virtually limitless.
A properly designed zero carbon home incorporates the full range of energy saving measures available – top class insulation, specially sealed windows, super efficient heating and cooling systems, energy efficient landscaping and renewable resources .
The real key to achieving an energy-efficient home is adopting a whole house approach.
