Are New Build Homes More Energy Efficient?

The rising costs in energy bills has been a topic of discussion nationwide in recent months, with energy costs rapidly on the increase. Buying a new build home could be the answer to helping you keep those energy bills down.

The rising costs in energy bills has been a topic of discussion nationwide in recent months, with energy costs rapidly on the increase. With many people choosing to grab an extra blanket, rather than switching their heating on, buying a new build home could be the answer to helping you keep those energy bills down.

New build properties are built to be far more energy efficient, which is not only saving you money each month on your heating bills but are also more environmentally friendly. Of course, there are ways of making older properties more energy efficient, but not without significant expense, or in a large number of cases, a lot of unwanted hassle.

As a new home builder, it is crucial for us to build new homes and developments that our customers can enjoy, but also stand the test the test of time. We strive for all of our newly built homes to be sustainable, built also built using practices that support our environmental policy.

 

Why are new build homes more energy efficient?

New build homes are designed and built with specifically energy efficiency in mind. This includes everything from the area in which we choose to build the site, the placement of the houses, the materials that use and the products that are chosen for the homes. New home builders, including Nicholas King homes, focus on using materials that retain heat, choosing high specification doors and windows to minimise heat loss, installing energy efficient boilers etc, all which help the environment, reduce your carbon foot print and save on your monthly bills.

Research carried out by the HBF, claims that new home owners, can save up to £629 a year, simply by living in a new build home, rather than an older home.

Climate change is one of the planet’s biggest challenges, with more extreme weather patterns creating unpredictable weather patterns. The climate changes affect us all, therefore through our business, our supply chain and the new homes we build, we aim to try and reduce the environmental impact by:

·      Reducing carbon emissions by our own teams and via our supply chains

·      Review and select green tariffs for energy supplies

·      Manage and monitor our waste, waste materials and water

·      Reduce carbon emissions by building to and beyond Part L of the building regulations

·      Selecting energy efficient appliances for all of our new homes, also passing on the savings to the customers who buy our homes

·      Using photovoltaic panels where appropriate, to create greener energy

·      Creating habitats for wildlife to preserve the surrounding areas and natural habitats

·      Providing facility for car charging, including car charging ports in our new developments

·      Providing smart meters for our customers to monitor their own energy usage and make smarter decisions about their energy consumption.

·      Keeping up to date with emerging technology and working practises

 

 

Nicholas King Homes have a number of developments with energy efficient homes including Water’s Edge in Surrey, Ravensmoor in Pitstone and The Walled Garden in Binfield.
