Affordability built in - energy efficient new homes

Did you know how energy efficient new build homes can be? There are lots of savings to be made by buying a new build home and you can find out more below.


Save your energy

A new home is extremely energy efficient, due to being constructed using modern building methods, and with energy saving equipment installed. This is better for you, your bank balance, and the environment.

In a new Gleeson home, you’ll have peace of mind that your monthly bills will most definitely be lower than they would be in an older home, and, that you’ll also be improving your carbon footprint by buying new.

Lower energy bills

Our homes are packed full of nifty energy saving features to help you save on your energy bills.

For example, our homes are built with well-insulated lofts (to ensure heat can't escape), thermostatic radiator valves, modern appliances, and water saving taps installed as standard. We also complete air testing to calculate the air tightness of our stunning homes, ensuring they not only look good but are cosy and energy efficient too.

Don't just take our word for it

We're proud to say that 95% of Gleeson homes achieve an EPC rating of B or above*, meaning a new home is definitely the sensible choice. According to Energy Performance Certificate data released in the House Builders Federation (HBF) ‘Watt a Save’ report 2024, for homes logged in the year to December 2023, 85% of new builds were rated A or B for energy efficiency, while less than 5% of existing properties reached the same standards**.

Your Gleeson home will be handed over to you with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) containing information about your home’s predicted energy use and typical energy costs.

According to the House Builders Federation ‘Watt a Save’ report 2024, new build homes are found to be 66% more energy efficient than an existing property, saving homeowners up to £183 a month in energy bills. That's a saving of £2,195 a year!

Think about it, that is approximately the equivalent of the average Premier League season ticket for you and a family member or friend, your next dreamy summer holiday paid for, or treating yourself to a takeaway coffee every working day of the year!

Air source heat pumps

All Gleeson homes starting build post June 2023 will be heated using air source heat pump technology, a much more sustainable option when it comes to energy consumption.

What's more, according to the latest House Builders Federation Watt a Save report, owners of new build homes fitted with air source heat pump technology will most likely see savings of up to £2,575 a year on their energy bills compared to existing properties fitted with gas boilers!**

Fuel your dreams

With so many energy saving features built into our homes, we’re confident to say that we have got you covered. Your gas, electricity and water bills are likely to be much less than buying an older property and your home is future proof; meaning you won’t be replacing dodgy boilers anytime soon.

Energy efficiency is just one of the many reasons why buying new is best but there’s also a whole host of additional reasons too, from being able to personalise your home, to the first to make memories in it.
