Stay Cool with Fans

Compared to air conditioners, ceiling fans are much more energy-efficient. Air conditioners can consume a large amount of electricity, particularly when operating for long durations, whilst on the other hand, ceiling fans require minimal energy to function, offering a cost-effective cooling alternative.

Swimming Pool Covers

Reduce the cost of heating your swimming pool by installing a high-efficiency or solar heater, using a pool cover, managing the water temperature, and using a smaller pump less often.

Solar Swimming Pool Heating

Solar heaters are competitively priced compared to gas and heat pump alternatives, with minimal annual operating costs and, in certain climates, solar pool heating stands out as one of the most cost-efficient applications of solar energy.

Whole of Home Assessment

The NatHERS Whole of Home rating measures the energy use of the whole home including appliances, solar and batteries. NatHERS Whole of Home ratings provide an easy-to-use rating to show how the home meets or exceeds the new NCC annual energy use budget which requires consideration of the efficiency of the appliances used in new homes as well as solar and batteries.

Design for 7 Stars

Ecologically Sustainable Home

Building for 7 stars doesn’t have to be costly or complicated. Simple design features and material choices make a big difference to energy efficiency and a home’s energy rating. Passive design strategies help reduce energy consumption, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint.

Hot Water Systems

Hot water shower

Around 25% of a typical household’s energy consumption is dedicated to heating water for various purposes such as the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry. In certain households, this percentage could be significantly higher. With a multitude of options available, selecting the ideal hot water system can be challenging.

Cold Climate Design Strategies

Cold Climate House

Passive design strategies help reduce energy consumption, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint.
This is achieved by taking advantage of natural resources to regulate temperature and light levels, reducing the need for artificial heating, cooling, and lighting systems.

NCC 2022 – House Energy Compliance

Ecologically Sustainable Development

The National Construction Code has established energy efficiency provisions to ensure that both Australian residential and commercial buildings are designed and constructed to operate with a suitable, yet minimum, energy level based on their intended purpose and location.

A Sustainable Home

The term “sustainability” has been gaining some much-needed attention within the building design industry, but what does it actually mean?
