Danforth care homes are Carbon Free Green Homes, deploying the very latest energy saving technology. Each home is an outstanding EPC “A” (3) rated Carehome that operates without gas. This brilliant place to live is engineered to produce a significant amount of self generated power. Over 80% of its roof is covered in solar panels to generate electricity to help run the home and has onsite battery stores to retain any spare energy for use another time. This means our home will consume about a third of a homes normal electricity and this can be purchased from clean sources on the grid.
In addition the homess benefit from extensive ground source heat pump technology. Underneath the site there are bore holes dug to depths of 600ft (with over 2 miles of digging completed in total). This incredible use of the earths natural heat provides hot water heating and enables our residents to benefit from underfloor heating and comfort air cooling technology.
