At Green Design Homes we work on some basic principals to improve the energy efficiency of your new home.
- Orientation of the house so that the living areas face north to take advantage of the winter sun and utilize passive solar heating.
- Using double glazing to maximize the energy rating of the home.
- The use of good quality insulation, sealing around windows & doors.
We also utilize a number of energy saving devises such as:
- LED down lights.
- The Smart Breeze – which utilizes the heat in the roof spaces, this is pushed back into the living area through a hospital grade filter to reduce your heating costs.
- Solar electricity.
