Eco plus structure

One of the main advantages of Jelovica houses is the large content of wood in the structures. Wood is healthy, as it emits no harmful substances and causes no allergies. It regulates air humidity in rooms and has a pleasant smell. As a structural material, it displays the best ratio between thermal insulation and heat conservation properties, thus reducing the cost of heating. Its life cycle is extremely clean and its processing requires little energy. It is a natural accumulator of atmospheric carbon and is CO2 neutral. The Eco plus structure boasts an extremely high wood content and is made entirely from natural materials. Insulation consists of wood wool in the wall, ceiling and roof structures, while cement particle board is replaced by façade fibreboard. Fibreboard is used instead of polystyrene foam. Wall thickness is 340 mm, and its thermal conductivity 0.14 W/m2K. The structure boasts a sound insulation value of 56 db and fire resistance class of REI 90.


Apart from geothermal energy, the sun is the only primary energy source. In the future, electricity from the sun will become one of the pillars of alternative sources of energy. The use of solar panels, which directly transform solar energy into electrical energy, is the cleanest form of power production. Due to the growing prices of energy products, solar power plants are becoming an increasingly attractive investment in terms of environmental awareness as well as long-term investing. Solar power plants are simple and can be mounted on various surfaces (roof, soil etc.). The only thing required for their operation is a set of photovoltaic modules transforming solar energy into electricity. The electricity thus obtained can then be sold to electricity providers. The amount of electrical energy produced by a power plant depends on the set power, position, solar radiation, module efficiency, roof slope.

Rainwater use  

Own parallel water system is a welcome addition to the family budget, especially in view of the growing prices of water. A rather simple connection of plastic outflow drain pipes with rainwater tanks in a suitable room is the basis for our household water system. The rainwater inlet must be fitted with a coarse filter to remove any leaves and dirt from the rainwater. Additional purification by means of fine sand filters is usually not required as such rainwater is clean, though not suitable for drinking. A pump forces the rainwater through the parallel plumbing to the toilets, washing machine, garden and car wash hose or even to the shower. Rainwater leaves no noticeable impurities in toilets and, containing no limestone, it keeps the toilets clean for longer. Moreover, no deposits build up inside the washing machine, as the water is softer. Smooth-surfaced roofs covered with clay tiles, synthetic covering or slates are the most suitable for rainwater harvesting.
