According to the Australian Government's Living Greener website, building a new home or renovating an existing one is the best time to be thinking about ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home.
Whether it'd be deciding on the design of your home, heating and cooling options, insulation, transforming outdoor areas or choosing energy efficient appliances, your choices can vastly improve your lifestyle, comfort and your hip pocket.
Windows can let in or leak away up to 40 per cent of your home heating or cooling energy. According to Living Greener, choosing windows, doors or skylights with a Windows Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) label can help reduce up to 80 per cent of this loss.
