Energy Efficiency

  •  The homes at Brighton Wood enjoy many features designed to reduce energy demand and to reduce the cost of heating and hot water production.

Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • As these homes are highly insulated and air tight a mechanical heat recovery ventilation system has been incorporated.
  • This system extracts warm stale air form 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, less dust
    and pollutants as the fresh air is filtered.

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.

Air Tightness

  • Air-tightness membranes have been incorporated and other features to ensure that these homes are draught free and that heat does not escape from the fabric of the building.
