Beat rising energy costs in a cosy McCarthy Stone retirement property
Did you know? Our research shows that that you could save over £2,300 on household costs**, including over £700* on energy bills a year in a McCarthy Stone retirement apartment when compared to a typical home.
Energy savings built in
That’s because all our new retirement apartments are well-insulated, warm and energy-efficient. They are built with eco-friendly Modern Methods of Construction. This means, not only are they are a joy to live in, but every aspect of the design has efficiency and sustainability in mind.
- Heavily insulated walls mean the surprisingly spacious rooms remain cosy in winter.
- Contemporary double-glazed windows and glass doors maximise natural light while keeping out the cold.
- Highly-efficient electrical appliances like light-fittings, ovens, hobs and fridge-freezers are fitted as standard.
- Many apartments have under-floor heating for economy - and luxuriously cosy toes.
Since the move, not only do I not have the stress of keeping up with the maintenance anymore – Debbie the House Manager makes sure everything is running smoothly.
I’m actually saving money day-to-day! My electricity bills are very much less, around £100 per month compared to the more than £300 per month I was paying in my old property. Saying that, you don’t really need to worry about having your heating on all that much. Even in the worst of winter I only feel I need to have the one radiator switched on - it’s so toasty and warm here.
