Following our energy up-grade and renovation works this modern warm and comfortable home is now B2 rated.  In early summer of 2016 our design team visited this Kildare bungalow following a call from its owners.  Their brief to us was to try and refresh it but in particular “sort out the conservatory and leave our home more comfortable for our approaching retirement”.  The budget for the project was limited so we focused on five elements, converting the conservatory to a sun room, external wall & roof insulation, heating system up-grade, installing energy efficient windows & doors and a full renovation of the kitchen/dining room area.

The biggest single contribution to greater energy efficiency on this project was the external insulation of the walls and roof.  Using external wall & roof insulation not only contributes greatly to energy efficiency but also helps reduce high fuel costs.  It also has the added advantages of improving air tightness, reducing cold bridging and causes no disruption to the home as all the works are carried out from the outside.

If you are thinking of insulating, up-grading or extending why not contact us at FloElen Construction and our experts will call to discuss your plans and offer you our free, no obligation design & advisory service to help you get the best designs and value for money.
