Renewable energy needed to achieve Code

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.

Developers Ankers and Rawlings, needed to use a renewable energy source to provide central heating and hot water for the executive development of eight, 3 and 4 bedroom new homes that they were building in Shrewton, Wiltshire.

The code means there is increasing pressure on developers to use renewable energy sources to provide central heating and hot water, and responsible developers like Ankers and Rawlings are looking for ways to reduce the carbon footprint of new homes, while ensuring that any new system is easy to install and maintain.

The remarkable Ecodan system has been installed in the new homes developed by Ankers and Rawlings, to meet the demand for space heating and hot water. Using renewable energy, Ecodan presents a sustainable alternative to even the latest modern gas boilers, in terms of performance, running costs and emissions, helping developers to easily achieve Code Level 3 whilst delivering reliable warmth for the homeowners.

Unlike other sustainable heating systems, Ecodan is very similar to the more traditional gas boiler, meaning that, other than enjoying greater efficiency, the homeowner notices very little difference. Each of the homes has a single unit fitted to an outside wall and each home features effective under-floor heating. Any qualified plumber who has attended the Ecodan training course can easily install the system that features a standard in/out water flow and return and a single-phase electric connection, making it a must for the future!
