Forward thinking to spending the autumn and winter in a plush energy saving new home will not only save you cash, but will also be kinder to the environment.

Linden Homes West Yorkshire can help with both of these across its developments in the West and North of the region – and reserving now could ensure you start reaping the benefits straight away.

A brand new home will almost certainly result in savings when it comes to utility bills, particularly when you need to switch on the heating - thanks to economic boilers, insulation and double-glazing.

Some eco-advantages and savings tips if you choose a new home:

  • The majority of new homes have thermostat controlled heating - turning it down by just one degree can save around £30 a year.
  • Most new Linden Homes properties will use 75 per cent energy efficient light fittings as standard. 
  • Linden Homes will fully draught proof your home. Figures show a fully draught proof home could save around £55 a year. Don’t forget to keep doors closed in rooms you are using to keep the heat in.
  • Boilers account for around 55 per cent of what is spent on energy bills in a year. Your new home will have a shiny new super energy efficient one.
  • Where possible, appliances fitted into Linden Homes properties are A rated or higher for energy performance.
  • All the toilets in Linden Homes properties feature a dual flush to help conserve water usage.
  • New homes will be built with the recommended insulation throughout the home – so no need to check and upgrade.

Developments are currently being built in Pontefract, Newmillerdam and Brompton Fold in the West and Tockwith, Harrogate, Killinghall, Boroughbridge, Morton on Swale and Thirsk in the North.

For details of where Linden Homes is building near you, visit the website. Linden Homes is now offering the new Home Reach incentive, where purchasers can buy a share of their chosen home and pay a low monthly rent on the part they don’t buy. There is the option to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive one.

With the Linden Homes partnership you can initially purchase between 50% and 75% of your chosen home and heylo will become your landlord, granting you a 125-year lease. This means you will be able to live in your home as if you've bought it outright. You can buy more of your home in the future and stop paying rent on that part. For details visit the website.
