Homeowners in Bedford looking to reduce their energy bills and become more fuel efficient can now learn about a wide range of eco-friendly systems following the opening of a Sustainable Buildings Showroom at the Bedford branch of builders’ merchant, Gibbs & Dandy.
The showroom, opened by Bedford and Kempston MP, Richard Fuller, has many products and technologies on display, such as biomass boilers, air source heat pumps, solar thermal systems and external wall insulation. All of which can have a major impact on helping homes and buildings become more fuel efficient, as well as reducing energy bills for owners.
The new showroom was created in partnership with Greenworks, the UK’s recognised authority and market expert, providing training in the applications of sustainable building solutions and products. As part of the showroom, there will be a centre to train trade professionals from the area about the various products and technologies.
Mr Fuller said: “It’s fantastic to see a local business working to support people and trade professionals in Bedford. The showroom has a great range of energy saving solutions that will truly benefit a lot of people.”
Stuart Harm, manager of the Bedford branch, said: “We’re committed to helping homeowners in the area become energy efficient, so this facility will provide them with the chance to come in and see what will benefit them. Also, installers have a great opportunity to learn about sustainable technologies, which they may well go on to fit into their customers’ homes.”
