A move to a more efficient home

We all want to pay less for our energy. It’s also important that we try to reduce our carbon footprint. From design and construction to the installation of heating and hot-water systems, energy efficiency is considered at every stage of our developments.


BOILERS

Condensing combination boilers

We install A-rated gas boilers, which provide a combination of central heating and hot water. This is a very efficient option for most homes.

For larger homes that need more hot water, we may supplement this with a FlowSmart system, which improves boiler performance and avoids the need for storing hot water in tanks.

GasSaver

The GasSaver unit extracts heat from the waste gases that are expelled through the flue. This is then used to pre-heat the cold mains water before it enters the boiler. This means the boiler uses less gas to produce heat and hot water – saving on energy bills and reducing emissions.

Thermal store

The thermal store, in larger homes using the GasSaver unit, further pre-heats and stores water, so the boiler works less to produce consistently hot water for a longer period.

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.


Solar Panels

Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity for you to use in your new home.

Features such as solar panels come as standard on many properties and help towards our commitment to building to the highest levels of environmental sustainability.

How does it work?

The solar PV panels on the roof absorb light and convert it into electricity. A device called an inverter, conditions the electricity so that it is suitable to use in the house.

When you use more electricity than the solar panels produce, solar energy is topped up with electricity from your supplier. If the panels are producing more than you need, the excess is exported to the grid for others to use.
