Did you know that buying a new build saves you money and reduces your household’s carbon footprint?
Research by the NHBC into the benefits of buying new found that you could save 53% on your energy bills every year in a new build compared to a renovated Victorian property; this is because new homes are built to such a high standard that guarantees economic and environmental benefits. A 3 bed-semidetached Victorian house with some modern improvements could run you an average annual energy bill of £1670. However, a new build could slash this bill by more than half to £780! Following the 2013 building regulations, new builds have committed to bringing you energy efficient homes that protect our environment. Not only does buying new save you money, it can also help our planet.
Here at Mandale we strive to preserve the nature and wildlife surrounding our developments. As well as sustainably sourcing our FSC materials we always exceed building regulations to ensure the best for the environments we are working in.
Standardizing the use of energy efficient LED bulbs in all our homes as well as maximizing insulation and installing high efficiency boilers are just a few ways that Mandale go the extra mile for our planet. We also ensure that our on-site waste is segregated to minimize landfill and some hybrid cars are used by our site staff to reduce carbon dioxide pollution.
Our green efforts don’t end there, we are currently planning for the installation of cost-effective solar panels for a future site. This renewable energy source is not only cost-effective but imperative for reducing our CO2 footprint, helping to become more carbon neutral. At our Workington development, we are sharing the site with the threatened red squirrel, we are doing all we can to protect the population in the local area, working with the environmental agency, watch out for more on this story!
So why not save yourself some money and protect the environment at the same time by giving us a visit and reserving your new Mandale home!
