- Features in new homes can help residents save around £800 pa on energy bills and £120 pa on water bills –
With UK families facing an average £118 rise in energy bills* this year, the cost of heating the home has been highlighted as the top household worry for 90 per cent** of Britons. This is not surprising in light of the fact that the cost of household energy has risen seven times faster than household income since 2004**.
A range of unique new family homes has been built by Crest Nicholson. Perfect for buyers looking for an extremely energy efficient new home, the three ‘AIMC4’ houses remaining for sale at Noble Park combine innovative new building techniques and insulation solutions to help significantly lower energy bills for residents. Purchasers of one of the four bedroom houses at Noble Park, in Epsom, could save around £800 per year or £4,000 over five years on their energy bills***. Water bills could also be reduced by up to £600 over five years****.
The traditional exteriors of the elegant family homes give no indication of the clever underlying technology. Features built into the design and structure of the properties include 400mm insulation in the roof, premium and very high performance cavity wall insulation, a top-of-the-range A-rated boiler with two programmable zones so that different parts of the house can be heated to different levels and increased insulation in the front door. Properties also benefit from long life LED lighting and a ‘Smart meter’ so that residents can monitor gas and electricity usage to further help reduce bills. The properties also have energy efficient appliances including a Bosch oven, hob, washing machine and dishwasher.
The unique AIMC4 homes at Noble Park are amongst the first in the country to provide low energy, easy to maintain and cost effective homes for the future, which will deliver a lifelong solution for carbon reduction and lower domestic running costs for homeowners.
To ensure that residents capitalise on the features of these special homes, Crest Nicholson’s expert team gives purchasers a Home Demonstration explaining how the home is built and showing owners how to make the best use of the fittings, technologies and appliances.
Noble Park comprises a mix of new and refurbished homes in the grounds of an Edwardian hospital building, located within a conservation area surrounded by green space and park land.
