Are new build homes more energy efficient?
Our new homes typically have an Energy Certificate Rating (EPC) of B which is higher than the UK average of D. Compared to a home built in the 1970’s, they offer up to a 63% improvement in heat loss. All this means, moving to a new Redrow makes living a low energy life much easier.
How are new build homes more energy efficient?
Our highly efficient ‘Fabric First’ approach to building homes helps reduce energy usage compared to older properties. From the way the home is laid out and the materials we use to build it to the high-specification doors, windows and heating systems we use, everything is designed to retain heat in the home.
If you’re looking to go a step further, you can upgrade your home to include solar panels and more using My Redrow.
How much cheaper is it to run a new build home?
Research by the HBF, based on EPC ratings, suggests that buyers of new build houses could saved an average of £2,600 on their annual energy bills last year.
Why do up if you can buy Redrow?
If you think you can achieve the same level of energy efficiency by renovating an older property quickly and cheaply, it’s time to think again. The average cost of renovating a three bedroom house to modern standards is around £70,000**. Don’t forget about all the extra costs like architects and planning too.
