How to be energy efficient? There are many ways but the purpose behind most peoples desire to be energy efficient is to reduce the cost of running your home. With rising fuel cost a good place to start is heating. How old is your boiler? We can upgrade your old boiler to a high efficiency boiler and you reduce fuel consumption cost by up to 30%. Our registered plumbers can fit a new gas or oil boiler to suit your needs and offer expert advise on what’s best for your home. A high efficiency boiler with zoned heating controls are available under the SEAI grant scheme.
Once you have your heating working at optimum, keeping it in is a priority. Starting at the top we can fit insulation in your attic then fit insulation either internally or externally to keep the heat in and save money on energy bills.
Draughty windows and doors can also be source of heat loss. We can advise whether you can improve the efficiency of your existing windows and doors, or to upgrade, from A rated double glazed to passive house standard windows. With your hall almost the largest area in most houses, double rebated composite door or a porch can greatly improve heat retention.
We can also advise you where you can make possible saving on your electricity bills, from changing bulbs to infrared switches that turn your lights off automatically whilst modern time clocks and phone applications can make managing your electricity consumption easy even if you’re away.
Crystal Complete Builders built an extra bedroom along with a study during April and May 2012. We would have no hesitation recommending this family builder for a number of reasons. Price - they were good value, offering excellent work and attention to detail. Commitment - they said they would finish by the end of May and they were, working long days to complete on time. Professional - they were very hard working. They were friendly, very tidy and especially respectful to our neighbours.

Crystal Complete Building, Seamus O'Carolan and sons Daragh and Stephen, carried out major work on my large attic, ca. 50 sq. m. during May to July 2011. They worked efficiently and with a minimum of fuss or mess. I employed them following a recommendation from a friend and had no regrets. Any minor queries were sorted out without fuss. I would have no hesitation recommending them to any potential customer. Also, I had no concerns having them carry out work in my absence.
