Take an exclusive tour round north-east energy efficient properties


Property seekers are invited to take a look at energy efficient new build properties in Aberdeen, Banchory and Mintlaw this weekend.

The Bancon Homes team will open the doors of The Aspire Residence in Aberdeen, Lochside of Leys in Banchory and Aden Meadows in Mintlaw on Saturday and Sunday to demonstrate the properties’ energy saving credentials.

Andy Stewart, director of design and engineering at Bancon Homes, said ahead of this weekend’s event that they are keen to show people how things like improved insulation and double glazing can save them big bucks in the long run.

“At Bancon Homes, we’re passionate about designing homes that help our customers reduce their annual energy bills, lead lower-carbon lives and minimize greenhouse gas emissions,” says Andy.

Insulation and double glazing

Bancon Homes staff will be available throughout the weekend to explain in detail some of the energy efficient features of their new buildings including increased insulation and double glazing.

This feature is designed to let in the warmth of the sun while minimizing heat loss, helping buyers control energy costs and keep their home at a comfortable temperature all year round.

Other energy-saving features to be highlighted at the event include the new build’s airtight timber frame construction, which is built to minimize uncontrolled air leaks.

The company says its timber frame homes have high levels of thermal performance and fewer unwanted drafts, plus the wood is naturally renewable and comes from responsibly managed forests.

keep homeowners warm

Andy says her priority is to keep homeowners warm in the winter and help them save money.

“Our stunning homes, which incorporate the latest technologies, are typically built to an EPC ‘Band B’ energy rating,” says Andy.

“This compares to a much lower ‘Band D’ rating for an average house in Scotland.

“So if you’re thinking of moving home, a newly built home, especially in the current times, has so much going for it that will keep you warm in the winter in the most cost-effective way possible.”

Property seekers can find out about the energy-efficient properties of the new buildings.

The new builds also have other energy efficient features including lower cost lighting, powerful kitchen appliances and efficient central heating.
