Energy efficient homes helping you save on bills
New build homes are built to the latest environmental standards and are up to 60% cheaper to run in comparison to an older build property. On average, based on recent energy figures (July 2023) the average new build homebuyer saves £135 a month on energy bills, amounting to £1600 a year compared with purchasers of equivalent older properties due to the many energy efficient features. This saving rises to £180 a month for purchasers of houses, totalling an annual saving of £2,200.
