The grass is greener with your new build, but we’re pleased to inform you that it can be greener for your bank account, too. We know that watching your energy consumption is important to many of you, whether you want to help the environment or just want to cut back on bills. Did you know that 8 out of 10 new build homes have an A or B rating for energy efficiency? Compare that to just 2.2% of existing properties. That’s less than 1 in 10 for most older homes!
We always do what we can to lend a hand with your carbon footprint, and our new builds are constructed with energy efficiency in mind. So, we have collected our best tips and tricks for energy saving. We’ll walk you through the benefits of a new build, as well as what you can do to help save on energy and cost in one.

Your Home, Our Commitment
We’re dedicated to ensuring that when we build communities, we do it in an ethical manner that respects the environment around us. Our homes have been expertly designed to maximise natural heat and sunlight, helping you to reduce your heating and electricity bills.
Within our new build homes themselves, we use energy-efficient boilers that use 15% less gas than the standard, and you have the choice of a Solar Thermal Heating System if preferred. Our windows are double-glazed to keep in heat, letting you turn down your thermostat while staying comfortable, and all of our taps and toilets are designed to reduce water consumption.
Sustainability is also key for us, from the design to the construction phase. We recycle where possible in our construction, even reusing land, and we do our best to keep unnecessary waste to a minimum. Did you know that we plant over 30,000 new trees near our developments every year? This creates a natural environment for you to enjoy, but it also provides habitats for all the natural wildlife our beautiful country has to offer.
In line with the government guidance, the UK housing industry is still active, so we’re still here for you. If you are interested in finding out more about our new homes across the UK, you can contact one of our developments directly to arrange a safe 1-2-1 appointment where our friendly sales advisors can assist you from the comfort of your own home.
