Faced with continually rising energy prices, there has never been a better time to buy a sustainable and energy efficient new home. In support of the Home Builders Federation’s (HBF) New Homes Week (Feb 27th– March 3rd 2023), Housebuilder This Land™ has a number of high-quality, homes available at Spiregrass Square in Cambridgeshire.
According to a research report by the HBF1, new build homes will save on average over £3000 in annual energy costs when the energy price guarantee (EPG) increases on the 1st April. Compared to older properties, new energy efficient homes offer significant savings and are more environmentally friendly to run.
The long term energy efficiency of homes is very much part of the ethos at This Land. When buying a new-build home from This Land, purchasers can effectively eliminate the need for costly energy-saving measures that you would be required to carry out in an older house.
One of a number of exciting schemes across Cambridgeshire, This Land’s stunning new Spiregrass Square development in the village of Over features a range of high performing homes. As part of the sustainability strategy, all properties feature improved fabric insulation, low energy lighting, 30% lower water usage and air source heat pumps (ASHP), one of the key enabling technologies ensuring energy efficiency.
Major energy-sapping culprits include old boilers, inefficient heating controls and unsuitable insulation which are often found in older houses, so buying a new-build home is already taking a tremendous step towards cutting down your energy bills.
This Land™ is committed to building sustainable and good quality housing that respects the existing heritage and landscape of the areas in which they are located. We are also focused on the creation of community spaces and amenities, alongside infrastructure.
