Sleep Easy - We are Carbon Neutral
Tewksbury Lodge is an Eco Friendly dwelling and we pride ourselves on being environmentally responsible.
- 26 solar panels collect the suns energy and generate most of the properties electricity needs
- Double glazed windows increase insulation characteristics; warm in winter, cool in summer
- Grid electric power is 100% renewable, sourced from Hydro Electric generation
- The Lodge is a superb insulator. A conventional house has an insulation value varying from R2 to R4. This log cabin has an insulation value of R16. The very high insulation capacity reduces heating and cooling requirements.
- Large logs have another wonderful property - their thermal mass; they are capable of storing heat. When the cabin temperature is lowered (e.g., at night) they give back heat into the rooms until the temperature is again equalized.
- A skylight minimises the need for artificial lighting during the day
- Ceiling fans reduce heating and A/C needs
- High efficiency instant gas hot water is used for it’s suitability to intermittent usage
- Hi-Tech lighting is used for optimal energy efficiency
