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 insulation

Ensuring your property has the best insulation possible can be the most cost effective energy improvement. Self-builders can benefit from choosing materials such as Warmcel, a recycled sustainable insulation with a high thermal mass and 30% improved air tightness. ‘Annual energy cost for a house built to current building regulation insulation levels is likely to cost around £900,’ said Gareth Major, Design & Marketing at PYC Group. ‘If the levels of insulation are increased to a higher level, the annual energy costs would be less than £100. Over the lifetime of a building, at today’s fuel prices, cost savings are likely to exceed £50,000. An initial investment of improving the building fabric by increasing the insulation 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.’
