Gable homes mature; they don’t grow tired. By combining the best materials and craftsmanship with leading edge technologies and techniques they create the ideal modern family environment that stands the test of time.
We do not claim to be trendy, but we do claim to be abreast of new developments in materials, technologies and opportunities. However, before we innovate, we test for efficiency, economy, and lasting value.
Some new technologies are required. For example, NHBC regulations include heat recovery systems for all new dwellings, so naturally these come as standard. In addition, we install vacuum extraction systems, underfloor heating, alarm system, and CCTV.
We also offer ground/air source heat pump systems, solar panels and photovoltaic systems.
We provide inbuilt media systems which can be as simple or as complex as suits the individual family’s taste and budget.
Gable Construction creates homes for people living and working in an ever-changing world while valuing classic styles. Our homes are, and will continue to be, compatible with and support your chosen lifestyle, your expectations and your needs.
Solar hot water systems use the sun to provide a plentiful free source of clean energy that can be utilized to heat some of your hot water. Solar hot water systems work extremely well during the summer months when they can contribute towards nearly all of your hot water needs. In the winter it may be necessary to top up the heat of the hot water with the assistance of a boiler or immersion heater.
South facing unobstructed roofs are ideal with the solar panels pitched between 30° to 45° from the horizontal.
Solar water heating panels have been chosen by some clients.
Ground source heat pumps extract heat from the ground by the use of pipes which are buried in the ground. The pipes can be buried in trenches or pile trenching can be used. The latter option can be more expensive. This heat can then be utilized to heat radiators and underfloor heating systems.
Since the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface the heat pump can be used throughout the year. Heat from the ground is absorbed into the fluid in the pipes. This heat is then passed through a heat exchanger into a heat pump.
A ground source heat pump system has been chosen by a client in order to utilize the heat for the underfloor heating system. The system replaces a solid fuel heating system.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels use the sun and warmth to provide a plentiful free source of clean energy that can be utilized to convert sunlight into electricity. Solar photovoltaic panels work extremely well during the summer months.
South facing unobstructed roofs are ideal with the solar panels pitched between 30° to 50° from the horizontal.
