Atherstone Blog  - Matthew Dodsley - UK ECO HOMES


With winter now in full gear and temperatures falling, many people begin to worry about ever rising energy bills that come each month.  A very worrying 1 in 4 people in The West Midlands are officially in fuel poverty (classed as spending more than 10% of your income on energy bills).  Unfortunately this number is only increasing.


However, there is hope and right on your doorstep.  A small, award-winning development of just 6 family homes has been built in Grendon very close to Atherstone (www.ukecohomes.co.uk).  What is so special about these homes you may ask?  Well, these 3 bed homes are ‘eco’ homes.  Each home is built with energy efficiency in mind from the very first brick.  Out homes have extra thick, modern insulation in the wall cavities and the roof, so that heat loss is kept to an absolute minimum. 

Secondly we have the latest Solar Photovoltaic panels on the south facing roof, which generates lots of free electricity for each home.  Each home also has a great piece of equipment called an Air Source Heat Pump.  This in real terms takes the heat out of the air to heat each home.  What does this all mean? Well it means that you never have a gas bill, and your electricity bill is virtually zero.  In monetary terms that is a saving of close to £1,300 a year (the average energy bill in the UK).  What would you do if you saved that annually?! This is not just talk, an owner of one of these homes already has the evidence to support this.

However, the money-saving doesn’t stop there.  Each home also has a greywater harvesting system, which captures rainwater and uses it to flush the toilets, so of course your water bill is cut too.

As you can see our homes come with great technology that saves you £££.  At nearly 1000 sq ft each home is built with families in mind.  There are three bedrooms, with the Master having an ensuite.  Gardens are over 50 ft long and there are two off street car parking spaces.  The small development is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac so there is no through traffic which makes it a very quiet, safe place to live.

We really believe these homes are the future, yet the homes are very competitively placed at just £179,995.  However, don’t just take our word for it.  We have very recently won an independent award (http://excellenceawards.premierguarantee.co.uk/2012-awards/g-c-enterprise-ltd/)

So I urge you to take a look at our website, with photos and information on our eco homes, www.ukecohomes.co.uk – which are, literally, right up your street.
