We design bathrooms to be as energy efficient as possible without affecting the comfort and appearance, adding insulation and including low energy lighting where appropriate.
We specify fans controlled by humidstats which therefore only run when necessary saving energy from the motor and the hot air from the exhausts.
Where the budget allows, we use heat recovery extraction systems to warm cold, dry air coming from outside with the hot, wet air being exhausted. This system saves a lot of energy and keeps the bathroom smelling fresh.
We work closely with a company that installs air source and ground source heating systems, always encouraging their use where appropriate.
We recycle brochures returned to us in good condition by applying ‘recycled brochure’ labels and giving them out again. If a brochure isn’t in good condition or is unsuitable for reuse, it’s recycled as waste paper.
Since 2000, most of the showroom lighting has been on sensors, therefore only used when necessary.
We encourage some of our employees to work from home to reduce transport emissions.
