We all want to pay less for our energy.
It's also important that we try to reduce our carbon footprint.
A BRECHIN WEST HOME
AVERAGE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT RATING
Taking practical, effective steps to lower energy consumption and reduce our overall carbon footprint is smart thinking — both for the planet and for household bills. From design and construction to the installation of heating and hot water systems, energy efficiency is considered at every stage of Scotia communities, and our goal is always to find new efficiencies with each development we build.
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.
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 are installed as standard on all homes at Brechin West, Brechin — converting energy from the outside air into useful heat inside.
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.
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.
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.
