Whether you are building a new house or renovating an old one it is so important to make it as snug and easy on the planet as you can. A new build really does not need any heating if properly designed and this can save a lot of money each year as well as the benefits to the environment

Wedmore has a good clutch of eco new-builds such as the straw-bale constructed Daisy Farm and older houses which have been retrofitted to help lower fuel bills. Pretty much all the current technologies are being used from PV panels aplenty to log and wood chip boilers, sheep’s wool insulation and clever use passive solar.

If you need some advice on anything relating to environmental kit then please drop the group an email or come to one of our meetings.
