Energy efficient new homes from Persimmon

18th August 2010 Print

Persimmon Homes South East is now building homes across the region that are 50 per cent more energy efficient than traditional houses, meaning savvy homeowners looking to move could save hundreds of pounds on fuel bills each year.

With the price of household fuels rising each year, energy efficiency has never been more appealing. To help save its customers money on their heating bills, Persimmon now builds a number of its homes using a timber framework instead of using traditional building methods, which dramatically reduces heat loss.

These timber frame houses are built and supplied by Space4, the UK’s largest timber frame manufacturer. Each wall, floor and roof panel is constructed in a factory, which enables additional insulation to be included in the build process and it is this that reduces the level of energy wasted.

Chris Hagan, managing director at Space4 explains: “We use the very latest insulation techniques to ensure our homes are easy to heat and keep warm, so that the homeowner is comfortable and heating bills are kept minimal. In fact, the benefits of our construction methods to the homeowner are so incredible that we have seen sales increase by 50 per cent in the last year.”

Jason Stokes, sales director at Persimmon Homes South East comments: “We don’t just provide our customers with a great deal on a new home, we also look at ways to reduce the ongoing running costs of the property. Our timber frame buildings are a great option for anyone looking to save on their fuel bills and are building several developments across the region.”

Persimmon is building Space4 timber frame developments include The Mews in Folkstone, Roebuck Park in Hellingly, Heronsbrook in Minster, Repton Park in Ashford, Clarence Place on the Isle of Sheppey and Medway Gate in Cuxton.
