Why buying a brand-new Beal home will save you money … and benefit the planet!

With so much focus on energy prices and living costs, it’s more important than ever to find ways to save money.

That’s why choosing a Beal home is such a smart move. Not only do you get a brand new, luxurious and bespoke home, but you also save money because all our properties are highly energy efficient.

New, updated energy efficiency performance figures from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) show:

  • On average, new build houses are 66% more energy efficient, saving homeowners up to £2,200 a year in running costs.
  • The average energy bill for a new build home is 55% less than for older properties.
  • New build homes are increasingly more energy efficient, with 85% of new builds achieving an A or B Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating, compared to fewer than 5% of older properties.

At Beal, every one of our homes has an A or B EPC rating, which means we exceed the industry benchmark for energy efficiency.

As well as being built to retain heat and energy, our homes are fitted with appliances with high energy efficiency ratings, complemented by energy-saving light bulbs throughout.

We are now going further. All Beal homes, where construction began from June 2023 onwards, feature thermally-efficient glazing, increased insulation, and waste water heat recovery units, in addition to roof-mounted photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. Provisions are also made to facilitate the future installation of electric vehicle charging points.

Sue Waudby, our Sales and Marketing Director, explained: “When you buy a Beal home, you can rest assured you’re investing in a property that’s highly energy efficient.

“That means you can enjoy a luxurious, warm and comfortable home while benefiting from big savings on your energy bills.

“You’ll be contributing to a greener planet too, as energy-efficient homes also have much less impact on the environment.”

The HBF research shows new build homes produce just 1.4 tonnes of carbon annually on average – almost a third of the emissions of a typical older property.

So, choosing a new build home is not just about a brand new place to live; it’s about saving money on running costs and making a positive choice for a sustainable future.
