SAVING YOU MONEY

Saving you money

According to the Home Builders Federation, on average, energy bills for new build homes are 57% cheaper. The monthly average energy bill for a new build property is £109, whereas the bill for existing property is £245 – that’s a saving of £140* per month or £1,685 per year. Those that buy a new build house specifically see even greater annual savings of £2,195. It's thanks to A-rated boilers, low energy LED lighting, smart thermostats and installing appliances with high efficiency ratings.

GREEN MORTGAGES

Green Mortgages

By buying a new energy efficient Countryside Home you could take advantage of exclusive ‘Green’ mortgage products. A mortgage lender could offer lower interest rates on properties that carry an energy performance certificate or a predicted energy assessment rating of A – C. Think of it as a reward for buyers who are purchasing an energy efficient home. All our standard homes have a rating of A or B so this type of mortgage may be ideal if you are looking to purchase a new build home.

KEEPING YOU COSY

Keeping you cosy

Unlike older properties, our homes come with high efficiency double glazing as standard, letting plenty of light and warmth in while minimising heat loss and reducing the amount of noise you’ll hear within your home. Not only do they keep you cosy they also reduce the amount of external noise that you’ll hear within your home.

Additional roof and floor insulation are among the other unseen features included with our homes that will help reduce the costs of keeping your home warm in the winter months, while also keeping you cool in the summer.

REDUCING WATER USAGE

Reducing water usage

Our kitchens and bathrooms incorporate water saving measures, without compromising on style or functionality.

These features mean our homes use up to 20% less water* than the UK average. Our taps and showers use aerated technology to provide the feeling of a strong flow, whilst using less water. Plus, our dual low flush toilets use the minimum amount of water to ensure less waste.

*Average Countryside home uses 100-110 litres/person/day compared to UK average of 140 litres/person/day according to the Energy Savings Trust
