Energy efficient homes in high demand

New analysis of the housing market has found that 22 per cent of the UK public want integrated energy efficient appliances and electric car charging points in their next home.

Jackson-Stops, who carried out the research, revealed that Londoners showed the strongest preference towards reducing CO2 emissions in their hones, with 31 per cent of London residents stating they would like energy efficient appliances and electric car charging points in their next property.

Furthermore, the younger generation were the most conscious of their carbon footprint when making property decisions, with 33 per cent stating they would like these features in their next home.

Nick Leeming, chairman at Jackson-Stops, said: “With England set to be the first country to introduce mandatory charging points for electric vehicles in new homes, it is promising to see there is a clear demand from the UK public for properties which help residents reduce their carbon footprint. This demand spreads further than just the new homes market. It can sometimes be assumed that older properties are less energy efficient than new build homes, but owners can make small changes, such as installing new appliances, which can help reduce their CO2 emissions.”
