With increasing recognition of eco-friendly living, new technologies and materials give us ways to help save our planet. 'Green living' is about becoming sustainable and living an eco-friendly lifestyle.
By considering your building choices, you can easily increase the comfort, safety and efficiency of your home without putting undue stress on our natural resources. By making your home "greener," you help to minimise pollution, protect the natural environment and create a healthy, comfortable, non-hazardous home for you and your family.
We offer a range of services and materials which can help you to reduce your impact on the environment. Most of these materials not only help you to be more eco-friendly but also help you to save on your energy bills.
Insulation needs to be an important part of your home. It keeps your house cool in summer and warm in winter. It reduces noise levels at the same time as reducing energy bills.
There are many different types of insulation: cavity, loft,external...
Choosing the right insulation for your home is an important decision.
With so many different types on the market we can help you to make the best decision as you choose the right insulating solution for your home. Then we can supply and install it too.
FSC & PEFC certified timber
Our suppliers can offer FSC & PEFC certified timber and sheet materials. Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification is a process that verifies that forest products can be traced from one certified supplier to another, back through the supply chain to a forest that is certified to a Forest Management Standard.
Energy efficient windows & doors
Considering the fact that up to 25% of the heat within most homes escapes through the glazing, it’s easy to see why more and more people are opting for A-rated windows by installing windows and doors with energy efficient glass.
Conventional double glazing involves the creation of a double skin of glass filled with dry air designed to increase the energy efficiency of any building in which it is used, by reducing the heat losses through the windows. This form of double glazing is far more effective than a single paned window. Further improvements in the effectiveness of the glazing can be achieved by the choice of glass used in the construction of the panels or by changing the air within the panels for argon gas that has a greater degree of thermal performance and cost efficiency.
We can also supply triple glazed windows which are even more energy-efficient than modern double glazing. They have an optimised energy balance to maximise cost savings. Triple glazed units with a very low U-value to keep the heat in during night and day, have exceptional thermal insulation properties . The outcome is a window that well exceeds the current maximum "A" window energy rating. The thermal efficiency of triple glazed units ensures that cold spots are eliminated. Triple glazed units can also be optimised to deliver excellent thermal acoustic performance - minimising noise levels from outside.
Energy efficient heating system
We can supply and install a wide number of different A-rated energy efficient condensing boilers from leading manufacturers to suit all homes and budgets.
We can further improve the efficiency of your heating system by combining traditional heating with underfloor heating in you home.
Both underfloor heating and typical heating methods have their own unique strengths and benefits.
Energy saving lighting
LED lamps offer long service life and high energy efficiency. The sustainability of LED lights offers a unique peace of mind. You will save on energy costs immediately and reduce the frequency of lamp replacements, all without sacrificing quality.
Natural paints & other finishing products
Modern paints are far more complex and have numerous added ingredients to facilitate artificial drying, ease of application, improved shelf-life etc. However, the luxury of having fast drying, non-drip paints has some serious effects on the environment, the performance of the building as well as our own health. Natural paints offer an alternative to vinyl resins and petrochemical solvents. They are often based on traditional recipes using natural, renewable products such as plant oils. They are formulated to give results comparable to the chemically enhanced paints that most of us are used to, but with minimal environmental impact.
Natural paints are micro-porous, allowing moisture to pass through them keeping the building ‘breathing’ and thus ensuring the longevity of the building components. Such paints also help to regulate the humidity of your rooms by controlling damp, condensation etc. The use of natural and plant based ingredients means that allergy and asthma sufferers and people who are chemically sensitive are much more able to tolerate these products.
Our company has years of experience in using wide range of natural based paints and finishing products.
