If you are planning a new build project, house extensions, loft conversions or any other home improvement work, it is a good idea to consider how energy efficient you can make it. Not only does having a more energy efficient property help the environment but also your wallet, as it can save you substantial money on energy bills.
1. Make sure your property is well insulated
According to Energy Saving Trust, a quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home. By investing in loft insulation, you can reduce heat loss and your heating bills. Our refurbishment builders and new build builders expertly install insulation in Loughton homes.
Whether its house extensions, loft conversions or any other type of building work, our building contractors will ensure your property meets the thermal insulation standards set by UK Building Regulations.
2. Opt for low-energy lighting options
When choosing lighting for a new build, extension, conversion or refurbished space, consider energy efficient lighting. On average, lighting makes up 15% of a typical household’s electricity bill. Opting for energy-efficient light bulbs are an excellent way to lower these bills.
There are two leading types of energy efficient light bulbs in the UK; Compact Florescent Lamps (CFLs) and Light Emitting Diodes (LEDS). Call our building contractors, refurbishment builders and new build builders, to find out all about these and to get them fitted at your Loughton property.
3. Invest in high-quality windows
Windows are another main source of heat loss and can have a significant impact to your properties’ energy efficiency. By getting our building contractors to install energy-efficient windows in your home or commercial property, you can reduce your energy costs further.
Whether undertaking loft conversions, refurbishments, house extensions or new builds, our team of new build builders and refurbishment builders, can source and install the best energy efficient glazing for your Loughton project.
4. Design an energy efficient loft conversion
When planning loft conversions, there are a number of ways your design can be made to increase the energy efficiency of your property, such as adding solar panels onto the roof, having better insulation fitted and opting for energy efficient windows and lighting.
Take a look at our previous work for examples of our conversions. An energy efficient conversion is important to ensure the space is a good temperature, no matter the weather.
