Energy Efficient A new build will help save your energy

When you’re buying a home, it’s not just the purchase price you need to consider. There are legal costs, moving costs and Stamp Duty for example, but don’t forget about the long term running costs of your home.

Saving energy

Save your time, energy, and money by purchasing a new build home. Built to the latest building standards, a new build home will not only stand the test of time but will actually end up saving you a lot of money every year.

The difference in efficiency and quality between old and new is evident in many ways:

  • On average, newly built homes are much more energy efficient* than a Victorian house of the same style.

  • Not only do they keep you and your family warmer in winter, you could also save up to 57% on your utility bills.


Efficient boilers

The cost of installing a new central heating system is around £4,403. Today's modern boilers provide hot water and heating as and when you need it, ensuring you spend less and energise wisely.

Double glazing

New homes are built with double, and sometimes triple glazed windows included as standard, the majority made from PVCu. Benefits include better insulation with far less heat loss, plus greater security from superior locking systems. New homes are also better insulated from the sounds of the world outside.

Keeping it right

Unlike older properties that can be subject to intense temperatures, Persona Homes stay warm in winter and cool in the summer. This is because our walls are insulated and we use more advanced building materials which can prevent problems such as damp.

Saving water

Persona Homes include water saving taps and fittings in our homes to reduce use and waste, as well as a water meter for easy monitoring. Brand new plumbing also means you’ll get no nasty surprises like leaking old pipes!
