New homebuyers in Bangor could be saving up to £1,300 a year on their energy bills according to research by Redrow Homes.
As new residents get ready to move into Redrow’s Goetre Uchaf development, off Penrhos Road, in Bangor, they could be reaping the benefits of choosing a brand new home over a modernised older one.
Redrow has calculated energy-use and costs for a newly-built four-bedroom detached home, a three-bedroom semi and a three-bedroom mid-terrace property. It then compared costs to those for equivalent-sized Victorian homes with modern day improvements.*
Results showed that a new four-bedroom home, such as those newly-ready for occupation at Goetre Uchaf, could save bill payers around £1,299 a year.
Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow (NW), said “There are many advantages to choosing a brand new property over an older one. As well as feeling fresh and modern, our homes are packed with features designed to minimise energy use and maximise efficiency.
“High quality insulation, double glazing, low-energy boilers and ventilation systems, as well as energy efficient lighting, which are all included as standard in all our properties, really help to keep bills down.
“Our findings make for welcome reading for our buyers at Goetre Uchaf as they could be adding an extra £108 to the family purse every month.”
Seven different house types from Redrow’s popular Heritage Collection are currently available to buy at Goetre Uchaf. The four-bedroom Cambridge, Henley and Balmoral start from £291,995, £339,995 and £364,995 respectively, with three-bedroom homes available from £234,995.
Just a 10-minute drive from the centre of Bangor, Goetre Uchaf is ideally positioned for exploring the beautiful North Wales coastline, the Welsh coastal path and the island of Anglesey, with Snowdonia National Park just 20 minutes away.
