Low Energy Design

Limekiln Manor houses are designed with energy efficiency as a priority. Each house features levels of energy efficiency that far exceed the average home. An array of features combine to ensure lower energy usage and higher levels of comfort.

The houses have been designed to achieve a minimum A3 energy rating contributing to reduced heating and running costs.


The A3 rating is achieved through the use of the following features

  • Excellent standard of wall, roof and floor insulation.
  • Certified ‘A rated’ triple glazed windows with argon filled glazing.
  • Humidity sensitive mechanical extract ventilation using a demand control system where the extract ventilation operates based on the Humidity levels. The system ensures a very good indoor air quality, they can also reduce the heat losses linked with ventilation compared to a constant airflow ventilation system.
  • Considerable attention has been given to the Air-tightness of the houses at Limekiln Manor. Each house has an individual air tightness test and certificate undertaken (instead of a default value which can be given to housing developments after sample houses are tested). This gives confidence to each homeowner that each house is built to the highest standard and quality ensuring the minimum of heat losses through the envelope of the building.
  • The air to water heat pump ensures the heat that is required is produced efficiently and with reduced C02 emissions.
