Buy Barratt and save money on your energy bills
10th April 2012
Homebuyers could beat the energy crunch and save money on their annual bills if they opt for a new Barratt home at its award winning development, Bluebell on Queen Elizabeth Road in Nuneaton.
Many homeowners can expect a 20 per cent hike in their energy bills in 2012 and could even see their bills increase by £100 a year. But a recent study has revealed that living in a new build property could save you money on your bills compared to older-style houses.
Purchasers that buy a new build with Barratt Mercia benefit from energy-efficient central heating, double glazing and high levels of insulation.
These measures make for a home which is warmer, greener and up to 40 per cent more energy efficient than homes built even at the beginning of the 21st century.
And thanks to modern materials and methods of construction, today's new homes are a remarkable ten times more energy efficient than their Victorian equivalents.
The benefits of a brand new home from Barratt include:
- Energy efficiency heating - new homes are warmer and cheaper to run
- Double glazing - fitted with trickle vents to provide controlled ventilation
- Insulation - lofts are insulated to a minimum 250mm to cut heat loss
- Peace of mind - all Barratt homes are covered by the exclusive Barratt five-year guarantee for fixtures and fittings as well as the ten-year structural warranty
"The speed of the improvements we've made to the design of our new homes often comes as quite a surprise to anyone shivering in a draughty old property and worried about paying their fuel bills," said Steve Barton, Senior Sales Manager at Barratt Mercia.
"A new home today is more comfortable, more efficient and uses less energy meaning lower bills.
"You could save literally hundreds of pounds on fuel bills. And new homes are set to improve even more in the next few years because we are continually moving forward on the technology used to build them."
