With high levels of thermal efficiency scheduled for 2025, to stay on track to meet the net-zero target in 2050, making buildings and homes as sustainable as possible has never been as crucial. So, if protecting the planet and reducing your energy bills is important to you, it’s time to consider the following options to make your new or existing extension space as sustainable as possible.
All of our building materials are chosen for their industry-leading manufacturing techniques, to ensure superior thermal capabilities and home security. We also strive to source local materials as it means less carbon to reach you.
We offer the most energy-efficient flat roof on the market too, perfect for modern, sustainable flat roof extensions and eco-friendly roof replacements. Plus, repairing an old extension rather than replacing it will reduce your impact on the environment too.
Did you know a draughty extension can account for up to 40% of wasted energy at home?… Combined with sustainable extension materials and insulation, A+ rated windows and doors will lower your carbon footprint further and reduce your energy bills. Our quality double glazing, solar control glazing, and superior Comfort glass products can achieve the highest energy ratings, keeping as much heat inside as possible and only letting out as much heat as they let in from the outside.
Underfloor heating uses less energy; saving about 25% compared to traditional radiators, and up to 40% when combined with a heat pump.
Typical residential solar panels produce between 250 and 400 watts each per hour.
Only heat the rooms you’re using.
Lighting accounts for around 15% of a typical household’s electricity bill, so it’s definitely worth considering these sustainable lighting solutions too.
LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than fluorescent lights, converting 95% of their energy into light. You can save £2-3 per year for every old halogen bulb you switch.
Allows you to switch lights off automatically, potentially reducing electricity use by 30%.
Practically placed task lighting, like a reading light or under cabinet lights, keeps energy consumption low and visual clarity high.
Reduces energy consumption further and prolongs the life of your light bulbs.
Cooler, neutral shades will make the space feel bigger, lighter, and brighter. Using low VOC paint will lessen your environmental impact even further, as it contains less volatile organic compounds than traditional paint.
Our unique extension 3D design service allows you to create your sustainable home extension right in front of you. Use our innovative roof designer, get a price, visit your nearest SEH BAC showroom, or contact us online to get your eco-friendly extension underway.
