Energy Efficient Homes
"Efficient, modern homes, built with traditional quality craftsmanship."
At GROW Build & Design we are passionate about making your new home as energy efficient as possible. New technology combined with traditional craftsmanship gives us numerous ways of increasing your home's climate efficacy.
Some of the methods we use to achieve this include, double glazing to windows, advanced sealing around doors and windows to stop warm air escaping.
Proper insulation for both the walls and ceiling. Backdraft seals on kitchen and bathroom fans.
We also specialise in making the most of the sunlight that your property is exposed to. During the design phase, Campbell will walk you through exactly what can be done to capture sunlight during the winter.
If you're looking to engage an energy efficient home builder in Point Lonsdale, Queenscliff or Ocean Grove, get in touch with us today.
This energy can be naturally stored in internal surfaces of your home such as concrete floors or walls.
It is just as important to be able to deflect this sunlight during summer if you’re trying to keep your house cool. We are well accustomed to installing solar panels on roofs to capture and store significant amounts of energy for your power usage.
This can be used to contribute to the climate control of your house without spending money on power from the grid. If you have enough solar panels on your property you can actually sell that power back to the grid and make a profit during the summer months when you’re batteries are full.
Solar Energy Efficiency
If you’re living on the Bellarine Peninsula, you’re likely to be investing in a patio, deck, grassy backyard or similar outdoor entertaining to be close to nature. We specialise in open floor plan living environments that capitalise on your properties orientation. By incorporating glass sliding doors you can make your home and garden feel like one huge space. Sliding doors provide a much stronger seal than traditional hinge doors. They also create more free space in your home because they stay flush with the walls when open. Large glass sliding doors allow more sunlight into your home during the winter months. Then during summer you can choose whether to let the sun in or block it with reflective blinds on those scorching hot days.
If the back of your residential property has a northern orientation, you can trust our vast experience in designing the most energy efficient space for your new home. We have built energy efficient homes in Pt Lonsdale, Ocean Grove and Queenscliff.
