Energy Efficiency

Your Anwyl home for the future

We believe in building for the future. As a family-run business, we’ve seen a lot of changes over the last 90 years — but the attention and care we put into our homes remains the same.

With energy efficiency and greener homes high on the agenda, we’re building homes that incorporate new technology, improved materials and lots of forward thinking to ensure your new Anwyl home is futureproof.

Learn more about what we’re doing today to make sure your home is always ready for tomorrow.

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, and as we move to the Future Homes Standard, these savings will become greater still. A new Anwyl home could save you over £180 per month, leaving you with more to spend on enjoying holidays, eating out or decorating your new home.

Introducing air source
heat pumps

Our new build homes at Whittle Brook Park, Heywood are fitted with air source heat pumps. Heat pumps consume significantly less energy than gas boilers, proving over 250% more efficient. Our air source heat pumps are simple to control using a Bluetooth smart app, with ability to heat your home room by room.

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 have an EPC rating of B or higher, 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%.

Solar panels to
help you save

For those wanting to increase sustainability and monetary savings, solar panels can work in partnership with your air source heat pump. They can help reduce your energy bills, improve the EPC rating of your home and help by supplying electricity to power your pump, bringing you closer to having ‘Net Zero’ home.


How does an air source heat pump work?

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.

What does an air source heat pump look like and where does it go?

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.

How do I control the air source heat pump?

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.

Are air source heat pumps futureproof?

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.

Do air source heat pumps require a lot of maintenance?

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.

Do solar panels come as standard?

Solar panels come as standard with all homes at Whittle Brook Park, with the option to upgrade to include more PV panels if you wish.
