Environment Policy

We are progressively making Fairfax Corner as environmentally friendly as possible, so we have installed solar water heating (which has gas back-up). 

We have installed secondary double glazing throughout the house and we use eco-friendly cleaning materials wherever possible. We welcome other suggestions. 

To avoid electric drying, we have installed an overhead clothes airer, and there is a clothes line in the sunny yard. A laundry service is available if required.
