The Victorian government has introduced a new 6 Star energy rating system for residential housing. From July 2004, all new homes in Victoria must achieve a Six Star rating. Six Star does not apply to renovations or alterations to existing homes. However, existing homes can benefit from incorporating energy efficient design features, which will lead to energy and cost savings.
The 6 Star rating is flexible and can be achieved using a range of energy efficient design features. Building, design and construction professionals, South Gippsland Homes can advise you on how you can meet the Six Star standard. An accredited house energy rater can also help you achieve Six Stars.
Six Star homes are more affordable and save their owners around $210 per year* on energy bills.
If you have central heating or air conditioning or you have a large home you can save even more.
Even without using any heating or cooling, 6 Star homes are up to five degrees warmer in winter and up to ten degrees cooler in summer than the average (2 Star) new home.
