Energy Saving Benefits of a New Build
Buying a new build home has many benefits, on top of the fresh paint jobs and shiny new appliances, new builds can often mean energy savings. New build homes are constructed with the latest technology and materials, making them much more energy efficient than older homes. This can result in significant savings on your energy bills and a more comfortable living environment.
New build homes are better insulated and more resistant to heat loss due to the use of high R-value insulation. This means that they hold heat in the winter, keeping the home warmer, and stay cooler in the summer by keeping outside temperatures out.
Brand New Energy-Efficient Appliances
New build homes are equipped with brand new appliances and systems which will usually mean they are some of the most energy efficient models. Our homes feature energy star-rated appliances, which consume less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases.
Some new build homes use high-efficiency heat pump systems for heating, which are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly as they rely on renewable energy sources. Others feature under-floor heating, which is often more energy-efficient than traditional heating systems as the heat is emitted at a lower temperature.
Homes that still rely on traditional heating methods are fitted with brand new, energy-efficient boilers and radiators, reducing energy consumption and reducing the likelihood of replacement or repair while under warranty.
Double Glazed Windows
All new build homes come with double glazed windows as standard, which serve as a barrier to heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. These windows significantly reduce the energy required to heat the home compared to single glazed windows, resulting in lower energy bills.
