Benefit from Larkfleet Homes’ energy efficient focus


Monday 24th September 2012

Housebuilder Larkfleet Homes' building methods highlight a commitment to creating well-built and energy-efficient homes. Larkfleet homebuyers can therefore gain extra added value in the long term due the energy-efficiency that is built into the fabric of its properties.

Larkfleet Homes builds many of its properties to meet level 3 of the Code of Sustainable Homes - some 25% above the current minimum requirement for energy efficiency set out in building regulations.

The timber frame construction method used in many Larkfleet properties is an efficient method of building which allows for quicker construction times. The timber frames are sourced from sustainable forests.

Wood has the best thermal insulation properties of any mainstream construction material - five times better then concrete and ten times better than brick.

Larkfleet also offers its customers renewable energy technologies.

Larkfleet Homes is currently offering photovoltaic panels (PV) - that produce energy from daylight - on selected properties on phase two of its Parson's Prospect development in Eye, near Peterborough, at Abbeyfields in Bourne and as standard at Leighfield Park in Oakham.

The installation of PV panels will benefit homeowners for years to come due to the government's Feed in Tariff (FIT) scheme that encourages the development of small scale renewable energy generation.

Under the FIT scheme, electricity companies are required to pay homeowners for all energy generated by the PV panels and an additional amount for any that is ‘exported' to the grid. Homeowners can also reduce their electricity bills by using the energy they generate.

Larkfleet has also installed an electric vehicle charging point from Chargemaster at its Leighfield Park development in Oakham for use by residents and members of the public.

The charging point at Leighfield Park is just the first in a network of charging points that will be installed around Rutland and Lincolnshire.

With increasing energy prices, Larkfleet properties are an investment for the future. The energy-efficient nature of Larkfleet homes could save homebuyers up to £600 a year in fuel bills.
