For energy efficiency, choose new
As climate change continues to top the agenda, we’re all looking to be more energy efficient. Especially when doing so helps reduce bills as much as carbon emissions.
Today, regardless of the type or age of the property being bought, sold or let, an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required. The certificate outlines the estimated running costs of a home. Different aspects of the property are graded, from the walls, roof, windows and central heating systems to establish a grading for its overall energy efficiency. The higher the efficiency of the property, the lower the running costs are. And when it comes to the most efficient properties to buy, new build homes lead the way.
