Your home at Brechin West will have the latest in energy efficient features

Insulation

Heat is lost through the floor, walls and roof, and particularly doors and windows. Without careful design, thermal bridging lets heat escape easily, and wastes energy in heat generation.

Windows

Modern A-rated double-glazing is used, generally with solar/thermal glass, gas-filled cavities and warm-edge insulated spacer bars. This reduces heat loss and maximises solar gain. The frames are compartmented to reduce heat loss, and weather-seals provide full protection from the elements.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps are installed as standard on all homes at Brechin West, Brechin — converting energy from the outside air into useful heat inside.

WHAT KIND OF AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS ARE INSTALLED?

Your home will be fitted with a Daikin Altherma 3 R32 Split* heat pump — one of the most energy efficient and unobtrusive of air-to-water heat pumps available. The Daikin Altherma heat pumps attains A+++ seasonal efficiency with Bluevolution technology and is equipped with a super intuitive user interface which can be controlled at anytime, from anywhere.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

Discreetly installed on the exterior of your home, the air source heat pump transfers ambient heat from the outside air by absorbing it into a fluid, which is then passed through a heat exchanger into the heat pump — raising the temperature and transferring this heat to the water in your heating system.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF THIS SYSTEM?

In drawing heat from the ambient temperature outside, the heat pump is able to reduce the amount of fuel usage required to run and heat the household, which is good news for both the environment and your energy bill. Households who switch to an air source heat pump system have seen their energy costs reduce by as much as 50% (Source: Energy Saving Trust Case Study).

In addition to reducing carbon emissions and lowering household running costs, one key benefit for homeowners is that it’s very easy to maintain, scale and adapt.

*If a Daikin Altherma 3 R32 Split Heat Pump is not installed — it will be an equal and approved alternative.
