Energy Efficient Homes
A challenge that we are facing is to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and reduce our carbon footprint. Design and materials are key in ensuring that we meet the guidelines set and produce a home that is energy efficient and will reduce the owner’s fuel bill.
Improvements can be made by assessing the site conditions, potential occupant behaviour, the climate, appliances, insulation, lighting, daylight, space heating and cooling, water heating, windows, doors and openings. Depending on design restrictions we would look to tackle the whole buildings energy efficiency on the outset.
