Efficient Low-Energy Design

The houses at Somerton enjoy many features designed to reduce energy demand and to reduce the cost of heating and hot water production.

Windows

Houses at Somerton are fitted with high performance windows which are significantly more efficient than traditional double glazing

Insulation

All of our houses 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 draft free and that heat does not escape from the fabric of the building

Solar photo voltaic Panels

The solar PV panels are mounted on the roof and are linked to the internal electrical system of the house. The panels generate power during daylight from solar radiation, a “clean green energy source”. This is a totally automatic seamless and synchronized process that does not require any homeowner intervention

Mechanical Ventilation

The house is fitted with a mechanical ventilation system which uses a centralized low energy fan which is located in the attic. It extracts air from bathrooms, En-suites, utility rooms & kitchens. The system automatically responds to moisture in the dwelling, increasing and decreasing the amount of air being extracted from the house to correspond with the homeowners’ activities

Fresh air is introduced to the living areas and bedrooms through patented ventilation grills in the walls which also respond to moisture levels in the home

Property Guarantee

All properties are covered under a 10 year Global Home Warranty
