10 reasons why our homes are carefully crafted for energy efficient living

1. Energy performance certificates (EPC)

Castle Green Homes prides itself on producing homes rated with A or B for energy efficiency. But did you know less than 5% of existing dwellings reach the same standard? *

Each and everyone of our homes comes with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) which includes details about your homes predicted energy use and typical energy costs.

This gives you peace of mind knowing exactly how energy efficient your new build home is. It’s just one less thing to worry about on your homebuying journey.

2. Air pressure testing in your home

Ensuring your home is energy efficient is a paramount for us at Castle Green Homes. That's precisely why we conduct air-pressure testing on your property to adhere to Building Regulations.

But what exactly does this entail? Air-pressure testing evaluates the air tightness of your new build home. This examination identifies any gaps, holes, or cracks to prevent excessive air leakage, thereby ensuring that your home retains heat effectively and minimises your energy bills.

3. Our homes are highly insulated

Approximately 35% of heat loss occurs through uninsulated walls.** That's precisely why we construct cavity walls filled with insulation, forming a thermal envelope that significantly decreases your energy bills while maintaining a cosy and warm atmosphere in your home.

4. Increased loft insulation

Did you know a quarter of heat is lost through the roof of an uninsulated home?*** Installing effective loft insulation not only reduces CO2 emissions but also leads to substantial savings on your energy bills. Here at Castle Green Homes, we take pride in installing up to 400mm of blanket-like loft insulation, effectively trapping heat within your new build home.

5. Double glazed windows

All Castle Green new build homes come equipped with double glazing as standard.

But what are the advantages of having double glazed windows?

• Keeps warm air in, improving insulation and reducing draughts, thereby lowering heating bills
• Reduces outside noise significantly, allowing you to enjoy quiet moments undisturbed.
• Minimises condensation on the inside of your windows, decreasing the likelihood of mould and mildew growth within your home
• Enhances security, as double glazed glass is considerably more difficult to break compared to single glazing, providing peace of mind for you and your family
• Trickle vents aid in controlling airflow and maintaining good indoor air quality without sacrificing the warmth retained within your new home

7. Zoned heating

Many of our homes feature dual-zone heating, allowing you to independently control the heating for upstairs and downstairs areas of your home. With this system, you can enjoy a cosy, warm bathroom in the morning without wasting energy heating other areas of your home unnecessarily. Dual zoned heating offers personalised comfort while also contributing to energy savings on your bills.

8. Energy efficient boilers

We carefully select and install energy-efficient boilers or heating systems tailored to each of our new build homes. For our smaller homes, you can expect to find ErP efficiency rated "A" combi boilers installed. Designed with space optimization in mind, our combi boilers take up minimal room compared to conventional boilers while delivering exceptional performance and low energy consumption for heating and hot water needs in your new home.

In our larger homes, hot water tanks are included, allowing hot water to be stored and readily available whenever you need it. This eliminates the need to continuously run your heating system, resulting in lower energy bills and ensuring no unexpected cold showers for your family.

10. Energy efficient appliances

At Castle Green Homes, we believe that small details can make a big difference. That's why we make it a point to install low-energy light bulbs throughout your home. Not only do these bulbs last longer than regular ones, but they also contribute to lowering your energy bills.

Buy new and save with Castle Green Homes

You may have heard that new build homes are energy efficient, but did you know how much you can save with a new build home? According to the Home Builders Federation (HBF), buyers of a new build house will save on average over £2,200 a year in energy bills.
