Efficient Hot Water Systems are combined with effective Hot Water Cylinder Insulation to maximise the energy saving potential from the Hot Water Systems installed in the Green Deal Eco House
Section of External Wall Insulation System installed at the Green Deal Eco House.
Gas-fired Condensing Boiler installed at the Green Deal Eco House
Gas-fired condensing boilers recover heat from the exhaust gas.
By recovering and using heat that would otherwise be lost up the flue, condensing boilers can operate with seasonal efficiencies in excess of 90%. Although these boilers require a greater initial investment, their increased economy can repay the extra initial cost in fuel savings.
Heating Controls for both Wet Central Heating Systems and Warm Air Systems installed at the Green Deal House
High Performance External Doors and Windows installed at the Green Deal Eco House.
Ventilation systems with heat recovery provide fresh and comfortable living and working conditions by eliminating unwelcome odours and putting a stop to condensation and its nasty after effects.

Recent technological developments have integrated solar panel collectors with gas fired boilers, making solar-based domestic water heating more accessible and cost-effective than ever before.The flat panel solar collector is available in landscape and portrait options.
Insulating and draught-proofing your floor can be a cost-effective energy saving measure.
For wooden floors, typical measures include insulating between joists and sealing between floorboards and skirtingboards. Underfloor insulation for solid floors is more complicated and usually requires professional installation. Illustration shows solid floor insulation.
Effective Draught Proofing is a key component of the High Performance External Doors and Windows installed at the Green Deal Eco House.
Hot Water Taps (Efficient) installed at the Green Deal Eco House. More details in the Water Saving Plumbing section
This is a compact unit that can enhance the efficiency of a compatible domestic gas boiler. This small unit integrates with the boiler, recycling latent heat gases normally lost to atmosphere, to preheat the cold mains. These devices both reduce cold water consumption and the gas required to heat hot water.
Using the soil, bedrock or groundwater as the heat source, ground source heat pumps can extract solar energy that is stored below the earth's surface
