Future-proof your new home
with energy efficient savings
We’ve developed a range of Energy Efficient Package options for you to consider with your new build. Giving you a home that is both better for the environment and saves you money in the long run. From solar panels to energy efficient appliance options, the choice is up to you.
By implementing passive environmental principals into your new custom build, you can reduce the reliance on gas and grid power, decreasing your home’s environmental footprint and reducing ongoing costs.
When it comes to creating an energy efficient home, many of the key decisions happen during the initial design phase. Everything from the position and size of your windows to the materials you choose to build with, they are all fundamental to your home’s environmental footprint and long-term energy efficiency.
Here are some examples to consider:
- The block orientation of your home to ensure you get maximum northern exposure in the communal living areas, especially in the winter.
- The position of the garage crossover and wet area locations, again in regard to north orientation.
- The style, size and position of windows to both ensure good sunlight exposure, but also adequate ventilation and cooling cross breezes in the summer.
- The size of the home and number of rooms you require, as every extra square metre can impact your energy costs.
