New homes saving owners hundreds of pounds a year in energy bills says HBF
A new report recently released by the House Builders Federation (HBF) highlights that ‘New build homes save owners £629 a year on energy bills.’
New Homes being built in England and Wales are considerably more energy efficient than their predecessors, saving owners hundreds of pounds a year in energy bills, says the report.
The report states: In accordance with modern regulation, house builders are driving energy savings through a combination of innovative design and more efficient materials.
Stewart Baseley, HBF’s executive chairman, said: “Today’s new homes are significantly more energy efficient than their predecessors, delivering huge benefits both for their owners and the environment. Owners are saving hundreds of pounds a year in energy bills due to the modern design of their homes and the materials used to construct them. With energy bills expected to increase further, households will continue to reap the financial rewards in the future allowing families to spend more of their money on the things they want instead of simply keeping warm. With house builders’ ongoing investment in innovation, it is clear that the industry is committed to driving yet more savings for homeowners”
