Sustainability and Energy Saving

icon

Concrete Block Build

Efficient Low-Energy Design

  • The houses at Hayfield enjoy many features designed to lessen energy demand and to reduce the cost of heating and hot water production.
icon

Windows

  • Houses at Hayfield are fitted with high performance windows which are significantly more efficient than traditional double glazing.
icon

Insulation

  • All of our homes are constructed with superior levels of insulation and they are carefully designed and detailed to reduce heat loss through floors, walls and roofs.
icon

Air-Tightness

  • We have incorporated air-tightness membranes and other features to ensure that these homes are draft free and that heat does not escape from the fabric of the building.
icon

Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • As these houses are highly insulated and air-tight we have incorporated a mechanical heat recovery ventilation system. The system extracts warm air from kitchens and bathrooms and supplies fresh air into bedrooms and living rooms. As part of this process the system recovers up to 90% of the heat energy in the exhausted stale air and uses it to warm the fresh air coming into the home. The benefits of this system are managed ventilation, reduced heat loss and less dust pollutants as the fresh air is filtered.

Solar & Photovoltaic Panels

  • We have fitted solar panels to the roofs which generate hot water which is stored in the hot water cylinder.
  • Photovoltaic solar panels for electricity generation.
