Thinking of a new home or development?
Why not think “green” from day one? Eco homes are becoming more and more popular. Even high profile celebrities such as former England and Manchester United defender Gary Neville have there own “tellytubby” homes.
An true eco-home is usually set into the ground to act as one with the environment. This allows the soil and grass on top of the property to act as a fantastic insulator to keep the property both warm and cool during the different seasons. Very rarely do eco-homes need any form of heating as they are usually glazed with high specification glass which allows huge solar yields to enter the property.
Hot water can be provided via solar thermal, and electricity is often generated from a large PV system or small wind turbine that will run at least 50% of the properties electrical demands. In summer, a high tech heat recovery system expels hot air from the building and replaces it with cool air to give a full climate control system for the home. Similarly, in winter the heat recovery system allows hot air inside the property to be transferred to fresh cool air without almost any heat loss, this keeps the building at a perfect temperature all year round!
Different examples of Eco-Builds are found in various forms other than the famous “tellytubby” home. Very old barns are now built to a specification where a building contractor will basically build an insulated box inside the beautiful old brickwork of the barn to maintain un-parrelelled efficiency. With current building regulations being so strict, even normal new build homes are very highly efficient these days!
