Features include solar photovoltaic panels, high levels of insulation, a Demand Control Ventilation system, an A-rated condensing boiler unit, and zoned heating controls, all of which combine to create an environmentally friendly home that is incredibly inexpensive to run.

Demand Control Ventilation
Demand Control Ventilation

Demand Control Ventilation is a whole-house ventilation system that quietly and efficiently monitors indoor air quality and matches the ventilation rate with the demand.

Our energy efficiency features deliver dwellings with an A3 energy rating with an estimated cost to the homeowners of less than €2 per day for heating, hot water, lighting and ventilation*

Our Homes And The Environment

So what makes a Cairn built home environmentally friendly? It's a combination of tried and trusted procedures and cutting edge technologies that help save you money while you help save the planet.

1

Insulation and Materials

Insulation and Materials

We use high levels of roof, walls and floor insulation leading air sealing products, excellent air tightness levels and low U-value, high performance windows allied with quality construction methodology as standard.

2

Demand Control Ventilation

Demand Control Ventilation

With intelligent airflow management such as demand controlled ventilation, energy savings are when the need for ventilation is low - which can be more than half the time.

3

Photovoltaic Panels

Photovoltaic Panels

Electric solar panels are the best solution for free energy and help reduce you electricity bills. They are a renewable energy system that is clean, maintenance free and extremely cost effective.

4

Low energy LEDs

Low energy LEDs

All of our houses are fitted with LED light fittings which are extremely energy efficient and last up to 50,000 hours.

5

Biodiversity in mind

Biodiversity in mind

Our planting strategies are devised with biodiversity in mind including pollinator friendly garden planting that works for every season

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Reduced Carbon Footprint

The renewable energy technology that we install such as roof-mounted Photo Voltaic cells or air-to-water heat pumps further reduce, in addition to high-efficiency condensing gas boilers, also ensures that the carbon footprint of a Cairn home is minimised through these environment-friendly technologies.
