As with all of our developments, the houses for sale at SeaGreen in Greystones have been built with a focus firmly on not just luxury and high-quality features, but on energy-efficiency and sustainability.
This sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, from the design of our houses and neighbourhoods, to our commitment to using only the best quality features that help reduce environmental impact, leaving the smallest carbon footprint while giving you big savings on running costs.
With an A2 energy rating, our three-bed Portland, four-bed Wyndham and Bellevue, and our five-bed Somerby homes are as energy-efficient as you can get in a modern development. Based on the feedback we have received from buyers, we know that people are looking for high-quality, energy-efficient houses that represent good value and savings on future bills, while helping to keep the environment clean.
That is why we aim to provide the same level of energy bill-saving quality to our latest phase, which will be ready in spring 2018.
Our houses are all built with the best quality materials, as Bill Quigley from NuTech Renewables, who work with us on this development, explains. Our dedicated team also works extremely hard to create comfortable homes with outstanding high-spec features that will last for generations, so you can enjoy living in this perfect location today, while being safe in the knowledge that they will be just as energy-efficient in the future.
To achieve this environmentally-friendly goal, we utilise efficient heating systems, including heat pumps, gas-fired and solar-enhanced heating, as well as photovoltaic heating panels that turn light into energy. As standard, all of the heating features are controlled by electronic and thermostatically controlled radiators, so the homes are always at an optimum and efficient temperature, no matter what time of the year it is.
Our high-spec insulation and high-performance triple-glazed windows ensure no energy or heat is lost and that any excess can be stored until it is needed, cutting down on waste and again, helping the environment.
This sense of future-proofing the houses at SeaGreen, and keeping this beautiful part of Ireland green, extends to our upcoming phase of development. These homes will also include new energy-saving features such as remote heating a nd lighting controls, and cabling for electric vehicles on every house as standard. Electric cars are becoming more popular and may soon be a common sight on our streets, which is good news for the environment, and we feel, a perfect fit with the green philosophy we bring to all of the houses we build.
The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) offers grants to people who buy an electric car, so those who do so and who buy one of the houses in our latest development, will not only be environmentally sound, but will save on both home energy bills and on motor tax and running costs too – something to think about when making the easy commute to Dublin or the surrounding areas.
Apart from enjoying the great lifestyle you can avail of by living in this beautiful development in Greystones, the huge benefit of a SeaGreen house is that with its A2 energy rating, you will be far ahead of energy regulations, and can look forward to a comfortable and sustainable family life well into the future.
