It’s often said that the exciting part of doing renovations is the planning at the beginning, and enjoying the finished product at the end, with the hope of getting through the construction in the middle as quickly as possible.
Although mildly amusing, that’s probably a harsh assessment! One thing that’s true is that renovations take a lot of planning to ensure a successful outcome.
In today’s blog, we’re going to touch on the 6-star energy rating and its impact on your renovations.
MRE Electrical Group principal electrician Brian Parslow offers the following tips to help you on your way to energy efficiency.
- LED Downlights – Incredible lighting and excellent energy efficiency, the latest LED Downlights provide great power savings.
- Dimmers – Often considered only for ‘mood lighting’, modern dimmers reduce power consumption in rooms that don’t need the lights glowing at full brightness.
- Motion Sensors – External lighting around the home helps keep you and your family safe from unwanted intruders. Rather than keeping lights on during the night, motion sensors activate only when someone passes through the sensor beam. It’s safety with a lot of energy efficiency.
- Solar Power – We’ve often talked about solar power in our blogs and its benefit towards saving energy and reducing power costs. Installing solar power systems with modern battery storage will reduce household power costs, and minimise the power you draw from the grid.
Achieving energy savings and meeting the 6-star rating requires the combination of strategies. If you’re planning some renovations or a new construction and find the whole issue of energy efficiency a bit overwhelming, then we need to talk!
