Save Thousands on Your Energy Bills with a New-Build Home!

“Saving Money and the Environment with New-Build Homes: A Guide to Energy Efficiency”

Are you looking for a new home that will provide a comfortable living space and save you money on your monthly bills? Then look no further than new-build homes. On average, buyers of new-build homes save over £2,000 a year on energy bills compared to the comparable second-hand property, amounting to £173 a month. And if you opt for a house instead of a flat, the savings can reach as high as £220 per month.

This significant difference in energy costs is due to the higher energy efficiency ratings of new-build properties. According to the most recent energy prices, which took effect in October 2022, the average annual cost of running a new-build home is around £1,500, only 42% of the cost of running an average existing dwelling, which stands at over £3,500 per year. This is because new-build homes often have higher Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) due to the use of modern insulation, energy-efficient appliances, double-glazed windows, and other energy-saving features.

In addition to the financial benefits, choosing a new-build home also positively impacts the environment. Older properties generate nearly three times as much carbon as their new-build counterparts, making new-build houses an essential part of the country’s progress towards a net-zero carbon future. So, not only will you save money on your energy bills, but you will also contribute to the planet’s well-being.

In conclusion, choosing a new-build home is not only a wise financial decision but also a responsible choice for the environment. So, why not switch today and start enjoying the benefits of a more energy-efficient and cost-effective living space?
