Energy efficiency has always been at the forefront of the policies established by Bromley & Gaines. When we become involved in your new build, home improvement or extension project, you can take it for granted that it will be our duty to evaluate the most cost effective ways of using energy in your home that will benefit you most.
However, to explain energy efficiency for the building and construction industry, would not only prove time consuming, but also confusing. It is an extremely specialist subject and beyond the scope of this website.
At Bromley & Gaines we have four objectives, that we consider are vital when concerning the energy efficiency of your build project:
- In the long term will you save money?
- What are your wishes?
- Will the environment be protected?
- Do we comply with regulations?
Unless you have specific opinions on the subject; or have a particular preference towards a certain approach to energy efficiency, then we will recommend using the most cost effective and efficient energy methods best suited to the task. Some customers worry about their carbon footprint; others just wish to save money. Either way, we will ensure that every aspect of the completed work fulfils the stringent requirements of the regulations whilst meeting your precise needs.
It goes without saying that we keep up to date with any amendments to the regulations. It is, after all, our responsibility to ensure that all the work carried out on your behalf remains completely within the law and is compliant with all current regulations. This ensures that every aspect of the building work will pass inspection and nothing will have to be altered or replaced.
Insulation is a critical consideration when building. It is not only restricted to the roof space; the internal and external walls; floors and ceiling areas also benefit from being properly insulated. You may also wish to consider the benefits under-floor heating or the fitting of underground heat pumps can bring to your property. The latter make efficient use of water pumped underground that allows the natural heat within the earth to raise its temperature.
It is essential with any building work to ensure that it is completely draught free and that any heat loss is eradicated. It is also vital for the property to be correctly ventilated. The appropriate choice of doors, windows, and glass, are crucial factors that individually contribute towards energy efficiency. Another energy saving feature you may be considering is the installation of solar panelling. This form of energy conservation has increased in popularity and has the additional potential of earning money for you from selling any electricity in excess of your requirements to the National Grid.
Your views and opinions are important. You know that when you place your trust in Bromley & Gaines, we listen to your plans and ideals and respond by offering expert advice that can help to create a living environment that is extremely efficient and right for you.
