How to Make Your Extension Energy Efficient

When building a home extension it pays to make it energy efficient. Homeowners in Leeds can save money on their running costs and help the environment. Here’s how to make your West Yorkshire home energy efficient and environmentally friendly.


External wall insulation is one of the most effective types of insulations you can have in your extension. It works by fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall, then covering it with reinforcement and an innovative type of render. Our external wall insulation can increase thermal efficiency, reduced heat gain during the warmer months, whilst still helping to prevent damp, be applied without disruption, reduce energy bills by 40% and helps to muffle sound entering the home.


If you want to keep your environmental footprint light then choose eco paint. Eco paint options offer high quality, breathable and are made without the use of petrochemicals. Some eco paints are so green they can be composted.

Underfloor heating

Underfloor heating has a bad reputation of being expensive to run, but in the long run, it’s a far more efficient way to heat your home than traditional radiators. On the downside, they can take longer to heat up than traditional heating systems but you do have a more even distribution of heat.
