‘A’ Rated – Low Energy Construction
Hunters Hill showcases the very best of low energy building technology and benefits from an exceptional EPC A-rating for energy efficiency and CO2 emissions, highlighting LEATHWAITE’s commitment to providing outstanding sustainable homes.
The property’s sustainability credentials begin with the building fabric. An insulated concrete foundation and exterior walls are coupled with Passivhaus windows and sliding doors, resulting in a high-quality, energy-efficient structure with thermal bridges eliminated and low levels of air leakage.
‘A’ Rated – Renewable Energy Solutions
The calculated CO2 emissions for the home are 72% less than the target emission rate1 for new dwellings. Two 70-metre geo-thermal boreholes, connected to two Ground Source Heat Pumps, provide the heating and hot water requirements for the home. A mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system (MVHR) allows the house to breath and provides clean filtered air to the home and comfort cooling during summer months. 8kW of solar photovoltaic panels (PV) are installed to generate electricity, together with a Tesla Energy Powerwall battery to capture any excess power.
