Energy Efficiency & Sustainability

Englehart Homes have been a clear leader in environmental sustainability as far back as the first Englehart display home, The Cooinda. This home boasted low energy rating even before it was kudos. The early display homes had a strategy to ensure that every home had good cross ventilation and made use of the winter sun.

Englehart Homes won the GMI Award in 1984 – this is the first Government authority to measure housing energy efficiency. Now Englehart’s design process ensures that your home will not cost the earth while trying to preserve it.

Englehart was the Greensmart foundation leader and adopts new ground breaking technologies to meet the challenges of creating a healthy lifestyle and environment. These and other considerations are all factors in designer homes for life into the third millennium. Great emphasis is placed on room zoning, proportions and visual flow through door and window locations. Important questions such as cross-ventilation and maximum daylight use are addressed and up-front solutions are incorporated into the designs. Of utmost importance is energy efficiency providing a formal rating at the final design.

Today, Englehart Homes has an unsurpassed reputation as a leading builder of both luxury homes and individually-designed custom homes. With a plethora of designs to choose from – either as a starting point or complete project – Englehart Homes can create a home to fulfil the needs of every home buyers’ lifestyle.

Take a look at the Englehart Energy Efficiency Checklist:

  • Locate living areas to catch the north sun’s warmth when needed
  • Carefully position windows generally
  • Provide suitable natural ventilation via careful sized and positioned windows
  • Install adequate insulation to walls and ceilings including aluminium foil to external walls
  • Consider use of a solar hot water system
  • Solar hot water panels must be positioned in a northerly aspect to catch the full value of the sun and deliver a 60 per cent solar gain
  • Water tanks are best positioned on the side of the house that receives the most shade
  • Consider zoned heating and cooling systems
  • Provide thermal mass from concrete slab and/or floor tiles and/or brick walls
  • Select appliances with high star ratings
  • Select water saving taps and shower heads
  • Provide draught proofing to doors and windows
  • Make careful selection of light fittings such as new generation halogen lams, compact fluorescents and LED’s
  • Consider smart wiring of lights
  • Recess entries to avoid heating and cooling loss
  • Select high efficiency hot water units
  • Install self-sealing exhaust fans
  • Consider appropriate landscaping to minimize energy and water use.
