A well-insulated, energy-efficient home is recommended for its impressive ability to regulate temperature at all times of the year. This means that you can expect a moderate climate within your home, with less intense heat or coldness than a draughty property. Insulation is not just great at reducing heat loss but also is able to reduce heat ingress, keeping your home cooler during the hotter summer months. It is for this reason that our new home builders suggest that you design your home to be as energy-efficient as possible.
Are you struggling to keep up with rising energy bills? With a well-insulated home, you could avoid paying extortionate bills just to keep your house warm in the winter. In fact, there are some pioneering building methods, such as Passivhaus, that can guarantee a near-constant temperature throughout the year, without the need for heating or cooling.
Even without the clear benefits mentioned above, this factor is reason enough to invest in energy-efficient solutions for your new home. Our domestic builders are keen to discuss how beneficial effective insulation is for the environment. The less money you spend on heating your home, the fewer fossil fuels are burned to generate energy, meaning less carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere.
This is a net win for everyone involved and helps to keep your home environmentally and financially sustainable for decades to come. Give one of our new home builders a call today to find out more about our building services in Farnham, Godalming and the surrounding areas.
