Energy Efficient Features of Your New EcoSmart Home
POLYSTERENE RENDERED FOAM FACADE SYSTEM
Polystyrene foam is a lightweight, durable material which offers exceptional insulation and thermal properties. It is also more termite and fire resistant than traditional building materials and moisture resistant, long-lasting plus environmentally friendly.
Heat Pump Hot Water System
Heat pump water systems use approximately one third of the energy used in an electric hot water system. A heat pump system transfers the heat outside the unit to the water stored inside through a heat exchange system, in a similar manner to what happens in your fridge. The process still works in colder temperatures because of the heating process, however there is an electric assist which is only activated during extreme cold to ensure the water remains at an optimal heat.
Using rainwater can reduce your water bills and provide an alternative supply during water restrictions to keep your garden green and healthy.Rainwater can be used in many aspects of your home, from washing clothes and flushing toilets to watering gardens and can also provide a fresh clean alternative to tap water for drinking as it is fluoride and chlorine free.
Energy Efficient Double Glazed Windows
Windows play a vital role in the overall energy efficiency of our homes with an average home losing up to 40% of its heating and cooling through its windows. Double glazed windows help to regulate the temperature in your home, reducing the cost to heat and cool your property by keeping the warmth in during winter and vice versa in summer. Double glazed windows lets you enjoy the benefits of improved thermal performance and lower energy bills.
Showerheads, Taps and Toilets
A conventional showerhead can use up to 15L per minute, whilst a low-water tap uses more than half that cutting hundreds off your water bill every year.
By almost all counts, induction cooking is faster, safer, easier to use, and more efficient than either gas or electric. Induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to directly heat your pots and pans rather than using a burner or heating element to heat from underneath.
Waffle Pod Slab
Waffle pod slabs deliver increased insulation because the polystyrene void creates a barrier between the ground and the slab and therefore functions as insulation pockets, significantly reducing heat loss through the floor. This creates thermal efficiency and therefore increases energy rating of the house.
Self sealing backdraught shutters eliminates unwanted cold/hot air from entering the room when the exhaust fan is not in use, as well as reducing energy loss.
Solar panels provide unlimited access to a natural source of renewable energy. Solar electricity produces zero greenhouse gas emissions and as it is supplied by the sun, it has very low running and maintenance costs. Solar energy benefits the Earth, but also keeps extra money in your pockets by reducing your gas and electricity bills.
Sealed LED downlights are one of the most efficient lighting choices, using about 80% less electricity than traditional downlights. They also provide a wide and evenly spread light to the room, and effectively prevent air from escaping into the roof cavity – which is one of the biggest causes of air loss in a home.
Sealing Air leaks ( average house loses approx 25 times per hour )
Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your home is a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs. Air typically leaks through unsealed vents, doors and windows, gaps in and around lights, power outlets and conduits. Sealing your home against air leaks will increase your comfort while reducing your energy bills and carbon emissions by up to 25%.
