Low carbon houses could attract buyers

Low carbon houses could attract buyers
Adding low carbon features to a house could increase its saleability, it has been suggested.

Making a property more energy efficient could appeal to potential buyers as a result of rising fuel costs and increasing environmental concern, according to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The quality of the boiler, as well as insulation and window standards, may be assessed by those looking for a new house, meaning that by making an effort to ensure that a home is low carbon, they could sell quicker and for more.

Leeds estate agent Alan Cooke explained: "Everyone is looking to make savings at the moment and if they can see that a house will cost less to run than another it's a big selling point."

Insulation is one of the methods highlighted in the report, with savings of some £155 a year to be made on heating bills when 270mm of the substance is laid in lofts.

Glasswool insulation is recommended by thinkinsulation.com, which is made from recycled glass, making it even more environmentally-friendly.
