Top 4 Benefits of building an Energy Efficient home

Living in an energy efficient home can actually be more beneficial than you might think. It requires some extra planning in the initial design stages, but, could end up being one of the best decisions that you’ll ever make for yourself and your family! Here we list our top 4:


  1. You will save Money

Making your home energy efficient means a lot less wasted energy in your house. Less energy going in, means less money going out! By optimising natural heating, cooling and lighting throughout your home, you can potentially save 30% on your energy costs.


  1. You and your family will be healthier

By optimizing the energy efficiency of your home, you can increase your comfort of living and, in many cases, see notable health benefits. Your home will be more naturally heated and cooled, properly ventilated, and drier. This lowers the risk of mold growth and illness and the build-up of indoor pollutants.


  1. You are protecting the environment

Energy efficiency is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Homes were responsible for 21 percent of national greenhouse gas emissions in 2014, and implementing energy efficiency measures in your home can significantly reduce your emissions contribution. The typical household can reduce its energy use (and by extension its greenhouse gas emissions) by 25 to 30 percent by investing in more efficient energy consumption.


  1. The resale value of your home will be higher

In the real estate market, energy efficient homes frequently sell for a higher price than standard homes with comparable features.  Coming with expectations of reduced utility bills and fewer repair bills, energy efficiency is an attractive feature in any home. Danielle King, spokesperson for Green Moves Australia, has cited a Canberra study that showed a single star energy rating is equivalent to a real estate value increase of 3%, enabling a five-star house to profit more – at 12% — than a one-star residence if the homeowner decides to sell.


At Greenmark Homes our mission is to empower people to build energy efficient homes that are affordable to build, more comfortable and healthier to live in, whilst reducing a homes ongoing running costs and the impact on the environment.
