What is eco?
When designing an eco house there is no silver bullet. Small, incremental changes to design, build and materials are how we create more efficient, warmer, healthier homes that are also easier on the planet.
It's things like making the most of the sun's free heating power, using high levels of insulation, and building in good natural ventilation. Using recycled and sustainable building materials alongside energy and water-saving fixtures and appliances also hugely reduce the home's impact on the environment.
Being eco isn't alternative, it just makes sense. The small changes you make to the way you live your life will pay untold dividends in your health, wellbeing and comfort while protecting the environment for generations to come.
