Lillybrook has a David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award – for continuing commitment to conservation and the environment. Lillybrook is also now an officially ‘Honey Bee Friendly’ Park.

Environment

Lillybrook has always harboured a great love of the environment, and in recent years our aim has been to make our homes as well as the park in general as eco-friendly as possible. The eco-adjustments we’ve made benefit both the environment and the running costs of your home.

The extensive eco-features that we offer are listed below.

  • Air Source Heat Pumps

    For the last 5 years the majority of new homes sold by Lillybrook have featured Air Source Heat Pumps. The Heat Pump is responsible for heating both radiators and all hot water supplies. Therefore the Heat Pump replaces the need for either a Gas or Oil boiler.

    With Lillybrook & Church Park being located in a semi rural area, mains gas is not available in the village. Previously the options for residents were LPG or Oil boilers.

    Encountering increasing pressure for more Eco friendly solutions Lillybrook decided to greatly increase insulation levels in all new homes thus enabling the Air Source Heat Pump to reach its maximum potential.

    Lillybrook currently use the latest Daikin Air Source Heat Pump models on all our new homes and customers have been delighted with the low running costs.

  • Home Insulation

    Lillybrook is working alongside the manufacturers to improve the standard of home insulation. We ensure that the majority of new homes come with 100ml of blown foam in the walls, this is equivalent to 200ml of fibreglass and is a third more than standard requirements call for. Our floors also come with extra insulation equivalent to a further 150ml of fibreglass. Lastly, our roofs contain 300ml of fibreglass insulation in order to ensure that you’ll never go cold on those bitter winter nights.

    S.I.P. (Structural Insulated Panel) FLOOR – For the last few years Lillybrook have been using S.I.P flooring on all our new homes. We find that it has made the homes both more ridged & provides better insulated floors. The floor is manufactured using a top & bottom board with blown foam in the middle (amusingly resembling a giant ice cream wafer). This removes the need for any wooden cross sections across the floor of the home, which gives thermal bridging (cold sections) throughout the floor.

  • LED Lighting

    LED lighting is the most cost-effective form of lighting available; with a running cost half of that of a fluorescent light. We strive to make certain that our new homes come equipped with LED lights.

    As well as installing these lights into our homes, we’ve also taken to using them in the park street lights. Soon we hope to replace all of our street lights with LED lighting.

  • Triple Glazing

    All our new homes come equipped with triple glazed windows throughout the home. This further helps to boost insulation levels.
