Castlethorn Construction are proud of their reputation for quality presentation and elegance, attention to detail,exceptional craftsmanship and the best materials ensuring every home is built to the highest standards. Alderlie will be no different. Home buyers want homes that reflect the very best of modern living. Alderlie provides this and more. All master bedrooms have en-suites with contemporary sanitary ware including low profile shower trays and showers with a booster pump for increased pressure. Coupled with this, all homes are fitted with a Climote control system which means hot water can be turned on and off remotely via an app on your mobile phone! Photo Voltaic panels and a demand control ventilation system ensure that homes in Alderlie are “A” rated meaning increased comfort and reduced energy consumption. Whether it’s added convenience of the outside tapor the ladder access up to the attic, Castlethorn have thought of these items so you don’t have too!
The houses at Alderlie enjoy many features designed to reduce energy demand and to reduce the cost of heating and hot water production
All of our houses are constructed with superior levels of insulation and they are carefully designed and detailed to reduce heat loss through floors, walls and roofs.
We have incorporated air-tightness membranes and other features to ensure that these homes are draft free and that heat does not escape from the fabric of the building.
Houses at Alderlie are fitted with high performance windows which are significantly more efficient than traditional double glazing.
The Solar PV system is mounted on the roof and is linked to the internal mains electricity. The panels will generate power during daylight from Solar Radiation, a “Clean, Green Energy Source”. This is a totally automatic seamless and synchronised process that does not require any intervention.
The ventilation system in the dwelling is a “demand controlled system” which uses a centralised low energy fan located in the attic to extract air from bathrooms, en-suites, utility room and kitchens. The system automatically responds to the moisture levels in the dwelling, increasing and decreasing the amount of air being extracted from the house to suit the home owner’s activities.
Fresh air is introduced to the living areas and bedrooms via specially designed grilles in the walls which also respond to moisture levels in the house and ensure that the right amount of air is being introduced at all times. The grilles are also designed to minimise the effects of wind and as a result, minimise cold draughts in living areas and bedrooms.
