Energy Efficiency

With the cost of energy continuing to rise, using less gas and electricity is on everyone’s mind. And the best way to spend less is to make your home more energy efficient.

If you’re thinking of a loft conversion, now could be the perfect time to take that step and have it done. Check out our recent loft conversions here.

A stipulation of new conversions is that they have to be energy efficient (not use more energy than is reasonable). In other words, a room in the roof would not only give you extra space, in turn adding value to your home, but it could also save you money on your bills in the long run. Win-Win!

Give us a call and we can talk you through the costs and benefits of these additional adjustments to improve your home’s energy efficiency:

  • Solar panels – particularly if installed during a loft conversation, as you can take advantage of the fact there is already, more than likely, scaffolding up for the building work.
  • A+-rated double glazing or even triple glazing windows. They can cut energy bills significantly, as well as being great for sound-proofing and cause less condensation.
  • Smart thermostats, which allow you to control the all your homes electrical devices from your mobile phone. No more wasted energy when you forget to switch off the lights.
  • LED lights are 80% more efficient than fluorescent and incandescent lights

Stay cosy over the winter months and pay less to your energy provider.
