Freeze out the winter chill with energy efficient homes

With the harsh winter weather setting in, fuel bills are likely to be a big expense for everyone. If you’re planning on moving home in 2013, putting energy efficiency on your property priority may lead to redcued heating bills next year.

When looking for a new home the majority of us will have a long wish list. This is likely to include many of the basics; desired location, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, open space living etc etc. Rarely considered however, are the running costs of a home.

With energy bills constantly on the rise, it is wise to consider how energy efficient the properties you are viewing are.  All sale properties will now be promoted with an EPC which will inform you of its energy rating. The EPC will take into account elements such as insulation and solar panels – all of which can improve energy efficiency and lead to lower running costs.
