Our energy-efficient brand-new homes could ease the impact of rising energy prices, visit here to find out more.

New is... warm

Thanks to advanced systems and smart technologies, all our homes have an energy-efficiency rating of either EPC A or B, a level of energy-efficiency shared by just 3.1% of existing homes*.

The benefits of a sustainable, energy efficient new homes

No matter how cold it is outside, you’ll feel warm in a brand-new Barratt home.

We use highly thermally efficient insulation and argon-filled double-glazing as standard, which allows the heat from the sun in whilst minimising heat loss.

This means you could enjoy lower energy bills, whatever the weather. 

In fact, a brand-new home could be up to 69% cheaper to run, meaning you could save up to £1,418 on your bills each year, compared to an updated Victorian equivalent^.

Smart walls

Our walls use the latest building techniques to keep the heat in and your bills down.

Energy-efficiency built in

Energy-efficiency built in

Our homes come with the latest water and energy saving appliances as standard. In fact, our water efficient kitchen and bathroom fittings could reduce consumption by up to 26% per day per person compared to the national average**.

When you move in, we provide you with helpful information about how to make the most of the appliances we provide, along with further advice on how you could live a more sustainable lifestyle, using less water.

Leading the way

We are on a journey towards all of our homes being Zero Carbon. That's why we're leading the way in green building.

Our new homes are designed with energy-efficiency as a key design consideration. Good levels of insulation, quality construction on-site and high-efficiency heating systems help to cut down carbon emissions and your bills.

When we discover that something works brilliantly, we start applying that thinking to all of our homes. Pioneering developments such as those in Hanham Hall in Bristol and Trumpington Meadows in Cambridge are proof that our new homes can set the benchmark for sustainability for years to come.
