Equip your home with a solar power system. Solar panels on the roof convert sunlight into affordable, sustainable energy. That saves you money on your power bills.
Benefits of a solar power system:
Although you can’t see it, insulation works hard to increase thermal efficiency. Fitted into the ceilings, walls (including wet areas) and façade, it keeps your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Insulation has an R-value indicating how efficient it is. You’ll find insulation with a higher than standard rating inside a Zero Net Carbon Home.
Benefits of high R-Value insulation:
One of the quickest ways to lose heat in a home is through the gaps between your doors, walls, air vents, skirtings and the ground. Draught seals minimise leakage, keeping you warmer in winter and cooler in summer reducing reliance on heating/air-conditioning. They also make your home a whole lot more comfortable by keeping nasty dust and pollutants out.
Benefits of draught seals:
Double glaze your windows. Trapping air between two panes of glass is a smart energy-efficient move. It acts as a barrier to keep warm air in during winter and hot air out during summer.
Benefits of double glazing:
Note: Double glazing is available only on standard windows. Windows with butt joints, sidelights and glazing bars cannot be double glazed.
Having ceiling extraction fans with humidity sensors means they automatically detect excess moisture and switch on to reduce condensation, and automatically switch off. They only work when needed, saving energy and reducing your power bills^.
Benefits of a fan equipped with a humidity sensor:
LED lighting is an excellent energy efficiency measure. LED light bulbs require much less wattage than compact fluorescent lamps or incandescent light bulbs. And they last longer than other bulbs too.
Benefits of LED Lighting:
Note: The pack includes LED downlights to main living areas only. LED bulbs will be provided for all other light fittings.
Your peace of mind is important to us. So, to ensure you have all of the energy-efficient benefits you’re expecting, any Metricon home sold with a complete Energy Saver Plus pack* is independently assessed to ensure it meets the standards of a Zero Net Carbon home.
Metricon arranges for an independent assessor to conduct tests during the build process and again on completion so you’re comfortable your home is performing as it should when you’re handed your keys.
*Independent testing is conditional on adopting all of the features included in the Energy Saver Plus Pack.
