This week in the Examiner, Kieran McCarthy of KMC Homes discusses energy-efficient measures for a new home.
In this article, we show the importance of giving early consideration to energy-saving measures in your new home.
When we design new homes we like to understand what renewables a client is considering very early in the design process as all these measures need to be sited in your new home and there may be further considerations needed in terms of say airtightness, electrical requirements, duct runs etc. The key elements to consider include:
- Air to water heat source
- Mechanical Ventilation
- Photovoltaic Solar Panels
