Sustainable energy refers to a way we can generate and use energy in a less harmful way to the environment. We can do this by being more efficient in how we use energy in our daily lives and also by increasing the amount of energy we use from renewable sources such as the wind, the sun, the heat of the earth and the movement of rivers and oceans. The following Elements will improve your Eco friendliness:

  1. Increased Air Tightness
  2. High Efficiency Heating Systems
  3. Time and Temperature Zoned Heating Control
  4. High levels of insulation beyond current normal standards
  5. Highly Rated Windows
  6. Reduction in heat loss around windows, doors, floor edges
