Claus Best

In 1987 Claus qualified as a City and Guilds trained carpenter, who after working for several building firms across the country started his own carpentry business in 1995 offering his services to customers directly.
 
Claus has always been very aware of energy inefficient buildings and has been challenged to improve properties with better insulation, draught proofing and better quality windows, doors and other appropriate products and techniques.
 
Smart Energy Services offers Energy Performance Certificates for properties (EPCs), gives advice on energy improvements and offers installation services on a wide range of products and technologies.
 
His business also offers a complete package of energy assessments, advice as well as the project management of installation works.
 
Apart from managing the complete retrofit project of his own home, Claus has helped customers across a wide range of properties with various retrofit measures from the internal insulation of a single room, to a 100m² attic retrofit in a listed building.  He has dealt with external wall insulation, flat roof insulation, window and door replacement and even installing airtightness measures to produce comfortable homes with low energy costs.
 
He has also fitted mechanical ventilation and heat recovery units (MVHR’s) to better ventilate properties and to minimise any heat loss by using a heat exchanger.
