Beating the cold from the foundations up

With winter weather truly settled in across Norfolk, now is the perfect time to consider the energy efficiency of your home, especially if you're thinking of moving.

Moving into a new energy efficient home could cut your energy bill in half, a report by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) found. David Wilson Homes builds energy efficiency into their homes from the foundation up, incorporating innovative technology into the fabric of the house as it is built rather than adding in energy efficient features later.

David Wilson Homes builds its properties using smart techniques such as special double glazing with a low-emissive coating and airtight doors. Some properties are also built with a smart roof, which has insulation built into it. Every home has external cavity walls which incorporate heat-reflecting low-emissive technology which makes for a warm and cosy home throughout winter months. Boilers are fitted with low-heat-loss-water cylinders to reduce the cost of running hot water when it's cold.

The benefit of the technology being incorporated into the house as it is being built means there is no extra maintenance cost to having an energy efficient home and you can rest assured that your home is built with the latest technology and specialist features to keep energy bills at an all-time low. The HBF Report states that new build home owners save £629 a year, spending on average £443 on heating, hot water and lighting compared to the £1,072 the owner of an older home can expect to spend.

David Wilson Homes is currently building new homes in Norfolk at Bure Meadows and Mulberry Park.

Bure Meadows is located on Sir Williams Lane in Aylsham. There are currently three, four and five bedroom homes for sale with prices starting from £180,796. A new Durnford view home opened its doors on January 13.
