New Patton Home will help buyers lose the pounds
1st May 2012
A new eco house which turns the clock back decades on energy bills has just gone on the market in Ballymena.
At a time when fuel costs are going through the roof the certified approximate heating costs for an entire year on this new family house built by Patton Homes is a mere £232 – nearly £100 less than the current cost of a 500 litre fill of oil (based on energy costs as of April 2012).
The cutting edge energy efficient features in the property at Herbison Fields is also set to save its lucky owners a small fortune on hot water and lighting bills with its Energy Performance Certificate estimating approximate costs of £88 for lights and £91 for hot water for the year.
With household energy bills increasing more than 90 per cent in six years, rising by nearly £600 to an average of £1,259, this unique home offers significant savings.
And you don’t have to be a millionaire to afford it as this high specification full turnkey, 3 bedroom family house is on the market for a moderate price of £185,000.
The savings have been made possible by a host of energy efficient features which go way beyond what current building control standards dictate.
These include a timber frame wall system which improves insulation and air tightness, a ventilation system with heat recovery which reuses any heat that is generated in the house and a solar system that provides 70% of hot water free.
The house is also fitted with triple glazed PVC windows and external doors with triple glazing.
It has been finished to Patton’s usual high quality specification and comes with a luxury hand painted designer kitchen with appliances, fitted sanitary ware, tiling, flooring and fireplace.
The house was built on the last remaining site in the attractive Herbison Fields development on the Cushendall Road in Ballymena.
John Montgomery, Director of Patton Homes said: “This is a one off home built with the aim of conserving as much energy as possible”.
With fuel costs now such a huge concern for many people we wanted to create a family home where there would be significant savings on bills and we are pleased that we have achieved that.
Building has to change considerably in Northern Ireland to meet today’s requirements and this house represents the homes of the future and incorporates a lot of the features which we as a company will be adopting as we go forward.”
