5 Top Energy Efficent Solutions

Built-in energy savings of up to 80%

If you’re serious about building highly energy efficient homes, build to Passive House standards, says Willie Moffitt, Certified Passive House Consultant. “A Passive House offers up to 80% savings on heating energy compared to a standard building regulation built home – no renewable energy source will save you anywhere close to that,” says Willie. Check the potential energy efficiency of a new build before you break ground with the Passive House Planning Package planning tool. It uses tested and approved calculations to yield a building’s heating, cooling and primary energy demand.

Airius Destratification Fans

Carbon Trust-approved Destratification Fans from Airius can save 20-50% on heating and cooling by combating the problem of thermal stratification. Buildings with high ceilings are more likely to suffer from this phenomenon, whereby warmed air collects at high level, requiring heating systems to work harder to maintain acceptable temperatures in the occupied zone. Installed at ceiling height, Airius fans quietly send this warmer air back down to the floor in a slow-moving column.  This equalises the temperature in the space – saving energy, cutting costs, improving comfort and reducing the carbon footprint in private, commercial and public buildings.
