Housebuilder Redrow will be hosting a series of educational events across its developments to help those looking for an energy-efficient new home this year, helping them save up to £2600 annually.

From Saturday 14 January - Sunday 22 January, prospective Redrow customers will be able to understand the energy costs that could be saved with better Energy Performance Certificate ratings, and how the Government’s sustainability and environmental targets will impact them as homeowners.

Potential homebuyers will also be able to use Redrow’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) calculator tool. This tool is designed to help people compare the energy savings to their current properties and highlight the benefits of a newbuild Redrow home.

New research from Redrow has revealed that three-quarters (74%) of UK adults admit living in an energy-efficient home is more important to them now compared to a year ago.

However, Redrow says this means nearly a third (29%) believe they are unable to make their home more energy efficient as their house is too old. The housebuilder firm says this may be why nearly half (49%) would consider moving to a new build home due to the energy-efficient features already installed.

James Holmear, Director at Redrow, said: “Our research shows people are more eco-conscious than ever before and are looking at ways to be even more energy efficient, especially about their homes. Our homes are designed to help people save money on household bills, with the average Redrow home being B-rated, saving homeowners an average of £2,600 a year on energy bills. 

Our sustainable options, such as eco waste bins, EV charging points, water butts and solar panels, have increased in popularity by 72% YOY and we suspect, with more people looking for ways to reduce their energy consumption demand will continue to soar in 2023. As a business, we are taking responsibility to help educate and inform homeowners and future buyers and would like people to visit us, so we can provide a helping hand on the journey.”

Newer homes are said to come with many energy-efficient amenities built in and are also covered by a 10-year warranty from the National House Building Council.

Redrow says it builds good quality, energy-efficient homes which start with fabric first approach. This includes using enhanced insulation, highly efficient doors, double-glazed windows and heating systems to reduce the home's energy use and retain heat.

Events are taking place at Redrow developments across South West England including Badbury Park in Swindon, one of its most prized developments.
