Davidsons Homes > Energy efficient new homes

Our commitment: to save you money and get us all going greener with our energy efficient homes

With energy prices rising, there’s never been a better time to buy an energy efficient new build home.

Did you know that older, second hand homes have lower ‘EPC’ ratings which in turn mean you spend more to run them every year? Plus, the costs you could face to replace your windows, boiler and radiators could quickly creep into tens of thousands.

That’s where a Davidsons home comes in.
At Davidsons, we combine character, period features, distinctive nods to local architecture and a community feel you won’t find on any other new build development – alongside all of the contemporary technology and materials a buyer needs today.

Our homes across the South and East Midlands are rated EPC B or above, meaning on an average four bedroom home, you could save £1,410 in just one year on your energy bills. That’s because our new build properties are built to higher standards in-line with modern building regulations. So, you can be sure your Davidsons home is far cheaper to run and better for the environment than an older property. See what saving you could be making in our
3 Bedroom Homes & our 4 Bedroom Homes.

Here’s how we do it:

Improved insulation

Not only do we use almost 16 inches (400mm) of insulation in our roof spaces, we also have insulated concrete flooring and an insulated cavity in our block and brick walls. To put it simply, think of it like a layer of thermals for your entire home – designed to trap the heat to keep you cosy inside for longer, whatever the weather.

Traditional windows with contemporary technology

We combine the character of Victoriana and Georgiansash windows with all of the benefits of modern day uPVC glazing. This means you don’t have to compromise on period charm to get cost-saving practicality. Double glazing is used throughout our homes to minimise heat loss and keep your heating bills down.

Boilers that bring bills down

Every new home we build comes with a brand new energy efficient boiler installed, along with radiators which have either thermostatic valves or separate heating zones that can be controlled by an individual programmer. This allows you to regulate room temperatures more easily and efficiently with less waste.

Front doors that fight the frost

Our front doors may boast traditional detailing like gold ironmongery, period-style porches and hand carved insignias, but inside, they have a host of contemporary energy efficient credentials. Our front doors are ‘composite’, meaning the hard wood exterior has durable insulating materials and steel reinforcement – keeping draughts out while also providing extra security for your family.

Heating your home for less

Our design team spend time considering every aspect of your new home, right down to the size and placement of your radiators. Ensuring all rooms are adequately heated, we have a range of radiator sizes that we install in prime locations throughout your home for optimum easy-to-regulate temperature control.

With all these features built in, you can have a clear conscience about your carbon emissions and be confident you’ll be keeping your running costs down too. Take your first step to a home that eases the pressure on your pocket.
