New Build Homes

New build homes are built to higher standards of insulation and airtightness, a vital way to reduce energy use, carbon emissions and their impact on the planet. This can throw up some challenges, as well as opportunities, when it comes to heating.

That's why we’ve split the information here across a few pages to cover stoves, chimney, ventilation, and renewable heating systems. You can also just contact us to talk things through.
