New energy-efficient homes set to be built in Northolt
Developer Lovell has just started construction work on 43 modern and energy-efficient new homes in Northolt, west London, for Ealing Council, a news report in the local media has revealed.
The £5.1m scheme will create 38 one and two-bedroom apartments and five three and four-bedroom properties, all of which will be used for social renting. In order to maximize their level of energy efficiency, all homes will be built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, which measures properties’ environmental performance, meaning that they will be 25% more energy-efficient than properties built to current building regulations.
Sustainable features will include photovoltaic roof panels and, since the preparatory work has already been completed, the development is set for completion in autumn 2014.
Councillor Hitesh Tailor, Ealing’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “We are committed to building quality, new build homes in the borough to help meet a growing need for affordable housing. I’m particularly pleased that they will be more energy-efficient and help to keep residents’ fuel bills lower.”
Local councils who are determined to keep bills down for their social tenants should also consider the implementation of a range of energy-efficiency measures, such as the HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves.
The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves represent a very good solution for any home, since the TRVs can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.
Moreover, it’s quite likely that the hospital could benefit from the financial advantages provided by the Government’s Green Deal scheme, given the fact that the HeatSave valves represent an approved measure to control radiators under the aforementioned programme.
