Developer needs to achieve Code Level 3



Ecodan
Launched in 2006 the Code for Sustainable Homes is the Government’s target for energy efficiency in newly-built properties and any new home developer must have a mandatory rating against the code.

When Bell Homes were planning to build 19 new three and four bedroomed houses in Withington, Herefordshire, they were faced with having to achieve the most stringent levels of insulation and efficiency in order to get planning permission. In line with Code Level 3, Herefordshire Council’s planning department required the whole development to be 25% more efficient than current Building Regulations stipulate.

Reaching Code Level 3 is dependant on collecting enough points across a range of environmentally-friendly building options, including water efficiency, use of materials, insulation and energy provision.

Built with timber frames and argon-filled windows for optimum insulation, this development of 19 three and four bedroom houses at Withington found that Ecodan perfectly complimented their need for energy efficiency, helping Bell Homes to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions and achieve Code Level 3.

An average UK household produces over 5 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, with space and water heating accounting for more than 73% of this. By using free energy from the outside air, Ecodan - the easy to install, low carbon alternative to a traditional gas or oil boiler - significantly reduces a home’s running costs and carbon emissions.

With over 20 years experience in the housing construction industry, Bell Homes found the Ecodan systems easy to install, energy efficient, environmentally-friendly and cheaper to run: certainly the way forward for developments of the future.
