55% More efficient new homes

The NHBC Foundation have recently proven you can but your bills in half by buying a new home versus an upgraded typical victorian home.

Living in today’s new homes could create annual savings of around 55% on gas and electricity spending – that’s over £1,300 in today’s market1, according to the NHBC Foundation and Zero Carbon Hub. 

Following its UK-wide research project into consumer attitudes towards zero carbon homes, NHBC Foundation has worked with the Zero Carbon Hub to chart the energy savings that could potentially be achieved by living in different types of energy efficient new homes.
