Heating materials ensure sustainability of Hartlepool homesNew homes constructed in Hartlepool are achieving sustainability thanks in part to the heating materials and insulation used in their design.

The Homes and Communities Agency supported the scheme and says that the modern heating materials used are just one of the ways in which the eco credentials of the properties are assured.

Colin Wilson, director of regeneration for accommodation provider Housing Hartlepool, says: 'The homes and their layout within Laureate Close have been designed to the highest standards.'

'They also have state-of-the-art heating systems and high levels of insulation, which will make them extremely economical to run,' he adds.

Externally, timber cladding materials complement the contemporary design used in the construction of the bungalows.

The timber cladding materials are accompanied by render on the walls, with grey slate used on the roof.

Green and sustainable building principles used in the bungalows could help to raise the type of housing in the energy efficiency ratings, after it emerged as the least eco-friendly category in figures released on August 20th by Communities and Local Government.
