Windows should be plentiful on north, west and even east walls to capitalise on the sun’s free energy. The larger the window the more natural light is let in. If a hallway ends at an outside wall consider adding a window. These are also great beside or within entry doors. Thermally broken double glazing filled with low-emissivity argon gas is the next best thing in aluminium joinery offering superior insulating capabilities. Skylights in hallways and dark areas bring natural light into the house during the day. Solar power eliminates the worry over high power accounts. Most systems are set up so that any excess power generated, is sold to the grid via the electricity retailer who applies a connection fee and charges more for power drawn when there is no sun than for power bought back. Battery storage systems are now available yet still in their infancy. Solar water heating translates to long leisurely showers if water consumption is not a concern. It costs upwards of $5,000 and offers long-term savings on electricity. Insulation in the ceiling and walls is now compulsory for all new builds. An optional extra is to have foam insulated expanded polystyrene panels fitted under the concrete slab as a barrier against cold air coming up from under the house. Explore insulation options, choosing the type that will work best given your house design and cladding. Insulation also needs to be fitted tightly to be effective. An insulated garage door will make a difference as less cold air will penetrate the home and the garage will be a warmer place to work in. LED lighting offers brighter light and uses less electricity. The fittings and bulbs are more expensive though they have been getting cheaper. Sensors and timers control when lights are turned off and on. The sensors respond to movement in a room with lights timed to turn off after a certain period of time. Heating options should be linked to your family’s needs and lifestyle. Log and gas fires offer ambience though gas is generally more costly. Heat transfer systems allow warm air generated from a burner to be circulated throughout the house. Central heating and under floor heating are fabulous for ensuring a consistently warm home though can be costly to run. Rooms can also be too hot when the sun is shining wasting power if windows are opened to compensate. Heat pumps are great in larger rooms and hallways with dual cassette heat pumps offering the option to position units in different parts of the home for centralised heating. More conventional heating may assist in smaller rooms. Remote controlled systems allow lights and heating to be turned on from a cell phone ahead of arriving home. Solar power and water heating offers energy saving options. Ensure plenty of north and west facing windows. Ceiling and wall insulation is now compulsory for all new builds.
