Five star housebuilders Barratt Homes Northampton and David Wilson Homes South Midlands are urging homebuyers in Northamptonshire to consider moving to an energy efficient brand new home this winter, which could cut their energy bill by over 55%.
With the cold weather well and truly here, new build properties are proven to keep you warmer through the winter. A new report by the Home Builders Federation (HBF)* shows that new build home owners save £629 a year, spending on average £443 on heating, hot water and lighting compared to the £1,072 the owner of an older home can expect to spend.
Jackie Day, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “Our new homes are significantly more energy efficient than older properties so not only does this save our customers hundreds of pounds a year in energy bills, there are huge benefits for the environment.
“As the cold weather sets in, people are concerned about the energy efficiency of their homes and want to know they’ll be able to keep them warm through winter without costing a fortune.
The developers have named their top three reasons more people can benefit from the efficient homes.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes build their properties to the highest standards and use smart techniques to ensure they are energy efficient, lowering energy bills.
They use features such as insulated roofs, special double glazing and airtight doors to keep you from feeling any draughts through the cooler months and keep the cold out of your home.
Each beautifully crafted home is made with the customers’ needs in mind from the outset.
Every home features external cavity walls which incorporate heat-reflecting low-emissive technology. These help to keep contain heat within the house, making your home warm and cosy through the winter months.
Customers also don’t need to worry about the cost of running their hot water when it’s cold, as the boilers are fitted with low-heat-loss water cylinders, meaning they can have relaxing bath at the end of the day without feeling guilty for using up all of the water.
The homes give customers peace of mind knowing they don’t have to spend a fortune on heating their spacious new home. Barratt and David Wilson Homes create high quality and energy efficient homes that are built in a sustainable and responsible way, to ensure you get the most for your money with a cheaper, greener and more energy efficient property.
