Elite Building & Refurbishment Ltd is proud to be a company that takes environmental concerns seriously. As such, we place a focus on energy efficiency and offer various solutions for all kinds of projects in Maidstone and the surrounding areas. From loft conversions to new builds, we advise on suitable options to improve the efficiency of your home, including everything from double glazing for house extensions to efficient appliances for kitchen installations. Our builders can even undertake work under the government’s Green Homes Grant scheme, helping you improve the energy efficiency of your home for less.

Here’s how Elite Building & Refurbishment Ltd can make your property eco-friendly and save you some money in the long run:

Glazing

Double or triple glazing greatly improves the thermal efficiency of homes in the Maidstone area. It is especially worth upgrading your windows if you currently only have single glazing, and you can opt for replacements or the installation of secondary glazing. We supply high-quality windows for all loft conversions, extensions and new builds, and can also upgrade windows as part of house refurbishment. 

You also have the option of double or triple glazed doors, including French and bi-fold styles which work especially well with new kitchen installations and extensions.

Insulation

Effective insulation is essential for maximising energy efficiency and keeping your home comfortable. There are many different types of insulation available. Our builders advise on the best option for your Maidstone home, ensuring the walls, floors and roof have proper insulation.

From installing cavity wall insulation in existing walls to supplying quality insulation as part of house extensions and conversions, we meet all requirements.

Appliances

The appliances you choose affect the energy efficiency of your house and opting for A-rated appliances will help improve energy efficiency. These products use less energy to run and where relevant, also use less water.

When undertaking kitchen installations, our team offers appliance advice to help you choose the most energy efficient options for your home, from washing machines and dishwashers to fridges and electric ovens.

Heating

Your heating system plays a key role in energy efficiency, so it is important to make sure your boiler and associated parts are in good condition and suitable for your property. When building loft conversions or house extensions in Maidstone, it is sometimes necessary to upgrade existing boilers with a model that has the capacity to heat the new space in addition to the rest of the house. 

Furthermore, if you have an old or damaged boiler, it may not be very efficient, so replacing it with a modern A-rated boiler will give you maximum energy efficiency. Our builders also make sure all new builds receive a suitable and efficient heating system.

Green Homes Grant

The Green Homes Grant is a government scheme aimed at making homes more energy efficient. All work covered by the scheme must be carried out by a TrustMark registered business, such as Elite Building & Refurbishment Ltd. If you are eligible for a voucher, you can use it to carry out a range of energy efficient improvements, and Elite can undertake all associated work. 

This includes everything from insulation and window replacements to installing low carbon heating.
