Spend less, live more
With the rising cost of living, there’s never been a better time to cut your energy bills. New build homebuyers are already collectively saving over £400 million a year on energy bills equating to £180 per month but the savings are even greater at Whittle Brook Park. Increased underfloor insulation, wider cavity thickness, increased insulation within internal wall construction as well as improved thermally performing windows and doors provide better thermal performance to keep your home cosy and your costs down.
Air source heat pumps will further reduce your annual heating costs by as much as £300 whilst our available PV solar panels convert sunlight into electricity which can be used to power your home’s appliances and lighting.
Increased efficiency and reduced bills leaves home owners at Whittle Brook Park with more to spend on enjoying holidays, eating out or decorating their new home.
Introducing air source heat pumps
Homes at Whittle Brook Park are fitted with air source heat pumps as standard. Air source heat pumps consume significantly less energy than gas boilers, proving over 250% more efficient saving home owners at Whittle Brook Park as much as £300 per year on heating their home. Our air source heat pumps are simple to control using a Bluetooth smart app, with ability to heat your home room by room.
PV solar panels
PV solar panels are available on Whittle Brook Park and are a valuable tool in the pursuit of sustainability and reducing carbon emissions. Converting sunlight into electricity, PV solar panels reduce your reliance on electricity from the grid, which is often generated from fossil fuels. In turn, PV solar panels can reduce your energy bills and improve the EPC rating of your home.
Going for green
On top of the financial savings, a new build Anwyl home is significantly more environmentally friendly than an older property. All Anwyl homes at Whittle Brook Park have a predicted EPC rating of B or better, compared to the average existing property in the UK with a rating of D. This improved energy efficiency means new builds use over 55% less energy on average per year, as well as reducing carbon emissions by 40%.
Outside air is taken to heat a liquid refrigerant to produce a gas. Then, using electricity, the pump will compress the gas to raise the temperature. The heat from this then passes into the home, heating radiators and underfloor heating, with the remainder of the hot water going to the cylinder for storage which can then be used from the tap/shower.
The air source heat pump looks similar to an air conditioning unit. It’s usually fitted at the side or rear of your property a few centimeters from the ground.
You can connect your air source heat pump to your home’s Wi-Fi network and control via the app — set individual climates for separate rooms, review your energy consumption and use programming options to personalize your home comfort.
Air source heat pumps are growing in popularity. With the technology to integrate solar thermal systems, a heat pump can help you significantly reduce your dependency on fossil fuels in the future, whilst solar panels will help offset the cost long term.
Heat pumps require very little maintenance – typically less than a traditional boiler heating system. They have a 25-year lifespan and come with a five-year warranty, with just one annual service required.
