Energy and renewables

GREEN living is becoming easier with the renewable energy industry at an all-time high. Innovative new products are emerging all the time and finally government subsidies may be available to support this development.

Think insulati on

Ensuring your property has the best insulati on possible can be the most cost effecti ve energy improvement. Selfbuilders can benefit from choosing materials such as Warmcel, a recycled sustainable insulati on with a high thermal mass and 30% improved air ti ghtness. ‘Annual energy cost for a house built to current building regulati on insulati on levels is likely to cost around £900,’ said Gareth Major, Design & Marketi ng at PYC Group. ‘If the levels of insulati on are increased to a higher level, the annual energy costs would be less than £100. Over the lifeti me of a building, at today’s fuel prices, cost savings are likely to exceed £50,000. An initi al investment of improving the building fabric by increasing the insulati on thickness will not only save the occupant money but enhance their overall quality of life by giving them a warmer, more comfortable environment to live in.’
