How Our Energy-Efficient New-Build Homes Could Help Keep You Warm This Autumn

 

Summer is coming to an end, but our highly energy-efficient, sustainable new-build homes will keep you warm this autumn – and could even help to keep your energy bills lower.

 

At Homes by Carlton, we utilise the very best materials to build our homes, ensuring you can stay warmer for longer and potentially save money, whatever the weather.

All of our homes have an energy-efficiency rating of EPC A or B – above the average rating of D for a home in the UK – and are well-insulated, utilising argon-filled double glazing as standard, which helps to minimise the loss of heat through windows.

Due to the current energy crisis, energy bills in the UK are expected to have risen 181% in a year by October. Clearly, owning an energy-efficient home is more important than ever, with 73% of respondents to a recent Home Builders Federation (HBF) survey stating they’re worried about the energy performance of their current homes.

One of the many key benefits of a new-build, innovation in building methods and materials has resulted in new homes being more energy-efficient than ever before. According to the HBF, as of September 2021, 84% of new build properties received an A or B EPC rating for energy efficiency, while just 3% of existing properties reached the same standard.

And HBFs “Greener, Cheaper, Cleaner” report found that despite new homes being on average 7.4% larger than older houses, owners of new-build homes could in fact save an average of £555 per year on energy costs. This would be a huge benefit to many homeowners across the UK as energy prices continue to rise.
