Building or renovating a house is an important decision. There are many factors to consider such as budget, location or functionality. Good design can save you money on energy bills, while improving thermal comfort and resale value of your home.
If you are building a new home or undertaking major renovations, you will need to meet state and/or territory building energy efficiency requirements based on the National Construction Code (NCC).
The most common way to meet these requirements is by getting NatHERS certificate with star rating and stamped final building plans ready to be submitted with your building permit application
