The demand for efficiency has never been this high. Many people in Australia are shifting to homes with low carbon footprint and increased efficiency. The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme or NatHERS grades homes according to their energy efficiency, setting a standard for households all over the country.
Using wood panels to build your house is a good way to go green and reduce your carbon footprint. Supawood and other providers of timber panels can help you build an eco-friendly house without compromising its design.
Using timber for your home ensures efficiency before, during, and after construction. Timber housing systems normally take only 2-3 days to create, depending on the chosen type of system. Furthermore, using wood reduces wastage, and lessens harmful effects on the environment.
A key innovation in efficient home systems
One of the major benefits of timber-based frames is that you can use Structural Integrated Panels (SIPs). SIPs are a cutting-edge technology in home design. They can help you cut down on your carbon footprint drastically by installing insulation systems within the panels, outclassing even fiberglass insulators. This will make household heating and cooling more efficient, so you won’t have to spend more.
With SIPs, you won’t have to rely as much on large heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, as the insulation systems within the panels can do much of the work for you. You can then scale down on your HVAC use and reduce your energy consumption in the process.
Using timber frames can help you take the next step toward maintaining a more efficient, eco-friendly home. Consider wooden house systems to reduce your heating and cooling costs, as well as help conserve the environment.
