Much of Britain’s new housing stock is being made more environmentally friendly but what about older properties? Can similar high standards and specifications be applied when renovating existing and older houses and flats?
The trouble is not many people have the know how or the inclination to take such projects on. Turning a 19th Century house into an eco home of the future is a fascinating yet achievable objective.
The fact is old and existing housing stock needs to be upgraded to safeguard the heritage for future generations.
What may seem expensive now will in fact prove money well spent for the future.
Examples of items to upgrade:
- Hot Water Systems
- Water Efficiency
- Water Recycling
- Use of reclaimed materials
- Use of low voc paints
