Energy-Efficient Homes in Queensland: A Greener Future

Building a new home in Queensland? Look no further than energy-efficient designs that not only enhance your comfort but also reduce your energy bills and contribute to a sustainable environment. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Building Shell Efficiency:
    • New houses and units are designed with a 7-star rating (out of 10) for the building shell (roof, walls, windows, and floors).
    • Features include optimal house orientation, better insulation, energy-efficient window design, ceiling fans, and lighter-colored roofs.
    • These improvements go unnoticed but significantly impact comfort and energy costs.
  2. Whole-Home Energy Budget:
    • Beyond the building shell, consider appliances and equipment.
    • Promote energy efficiency through choices like air-conditioners, hot water heaters, and lighting.
    • On-site renewable energy, such as solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, further enhances sustainability.
  3. Cost Savings and Environmental Impact:
