A3 BER rating. Discover what life is like in an A-rated home; the cosiness and comfort are a revelation.
Exceptional insulation. Excellent levels of insulation are built into the floor, walls and roof, in excess of the building regulations.
Airtightness. Each house has a high level of airtightness reducing heat and energy loss through the fabric of the building.
Mechanical ventilation system. Highly insulated and airtight homes need to be adequately ventilated to provide a comfortable and healthy environment. The Whitfield Grove houses use an energy-efficient technology called Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR). Warm, moist air is constantly drawn out of the kitchen, utility room and bathrooms; the MVHR unit retains the heat energy in this air and uses it to warm fresh air that is drawn in from outside and ducted to habitable rooms. This fresh air is filtered before it is supplied to the house.
Air-source heat pump. Flexible controls provide efficient heating and hot water with proven low energy costs. Each house’s heat pump is located in its back garden.
Underfloor heating. The houses have thermostat-controlled underfloor heating on the ground floor. The upper floors have best-quality, low-temperature aluminium radiators with thermostatic valve controls.
Hot-water programming. You can program the system to meet your requirements.
