Eco Granny Flats
Living in a Granny Flat shouldn’t reduce your standard of living; nor should it impact the ecological footprint on the environment.
A passive home is a self-sustainable building designed to be comfortable to live in all year round. It is extremely energy-efficient, using 90% less energy and reducing CO² emissions by 90%!
This is generally achieved through simple measures, such as; the orientation of the building, the type of insulation used, shading devices, glazing types and cross-ventilation. Applying these basic techniques to your Granny Flats allows it to breathe; making it cheaper to heat and cool, and ultimately resulting in a healthier, comfortable environment.
Granny Flat Solutions has been instrumental in learning and applying these principles, and would love to assist you with your next project.
