Eco-friendly homes are becoming increasingly popular with many of us wanting to ensure that our homes are not having a negative impact on the environment.
Here at Mira Showers, we want to support those who are actively adapting or renovating their homes to be as green as possible which is why we donated numerous products, including our electric showers, to help support a local development.
Jon, a professional plumber, is building his dream home in Gloucester close to our headquarters. It has been named The Treehouse and will not only be a family home but will also become a Bed and Breakfast for visitors in the local area. The project development was featured on the Channel 4 show Grand Designs in September 2016.
A Passive Haus certification means that the home requires very little energy to create the ideal room temperature all year round, so conventional heating and air conditioning systems become unnecessary within these homes. In addition, a Passive Haus certified home requires a very low water usage, making electric showers ideal for the bathrooms. The Treehouse has been built to be as eco-friendly as possible and has achieved a Passive Haus Certification and will use only Mira electric showers within the bathrooms.
The bathrooms of The Treehouse will feature the Mira Sport electric shower, Mira Evolve basin mixer taps, Mira Leap enclosure and Mira Flight Safe shower tray. The beauty of using only Mira Showers products within the bathroom is that the designs of our products match one another and create a seamless look within the room. Our Mira Leap enclosures combine exceptionally smooth operation and feel with superior functionality and discreet, sleek looks. The Mira Flight Safe shower tray is scratch, chip and discolouration resistant making it durable for all of the visitors to The Treehouse in years to come.
