As part of the energy efficiency project, West Lothian based Direct Savings worked in conjunction with Historic Scotland who funded the project and the National Trust for Scotland who own the property.
Scotstarvit Cottage was chosen to test how traditional properties can be upgraded to make them more energy efficient with minimal impact on the fabric of the building.
The cottage sits adjacent to Scotstarvit Tower which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Category A Listed Building.
Infranomic heaters omit Far Infrared energy which floods the entire room with warmth, absorbing into all materials within the room, including the walls, ceiling and floor. The heat retention is far greater to that of warm air conventional systems. In addition to this, the operating time of the heater is greatly reduced and the heat spreads evenly through the room.
