Here comes the sun

Capturing the natural sunlight into your home is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to reduce your carbon footprint. Utilising your block’s orientation, ensuring your living areas and outdoor areas are north-facing, as well as the installation of north-facing windows, is a great way to naturally heat your home in the cooler months. 

Post-build options

There is a multitude of ways you can make your house greener including energy-efficient lightbulbs, low-flow showerheads, Smart TV’s as well as DIY vegetable and herb gardens are highly effective ways to help the environment.

Consider solar panels 

One of the most common and cost-effective products available to Australian home buyers is the installation of solar panels. Though it might seem like a pricey option, the Victorian Government offers a solar panel rebate and the money you save in the long-term makes it a worthwhile investment.
