Woodford Homes – your answer to an energy efficient home

An energy efficient home makes sense – it’s better for you and your family, it saves you money and is kinder to the environment.

At Woodford Homes, we’re committed to making our custom designed new homes and extensions energy efficient.

Not only do we want to pass on the benefits of a smart design to our clients, energy efficiency is an important part of current building regulations. All new homes have to comply with BASIX Energy Targets.

You can rest assured that the expert team at Woodford Homes holds Greensmart Professional accreditation and has a thorough understanding of all regulations.

What is an energy efficient home?

An energy efficient home:

  • uses less energy and water
  • produces lower greenhouse gas emissions, and
  • places less reliance on nonrenewable energy.

An energy efficient home is also a healthy home. It will help you save money on your power bills and help save the planet too!

The good news is that both new and existing homes can be improved with simple energy efficient strategies as well as products and materials.

Your energy efficient new home

When you choose Woodford Homes to design and build your new home, you’re choosing energy efficiency.

We’ll help you design a home that’s comfortable all year round and will reduce your dependence on air conditioning and heating – saving you money.

  • Our designs pay careful attention to the thermal mass of your home – so you’ll stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Read more about the importance of thermal mass here.
  • We understand the complexities of ventilation and how to capture as much natural light as your block and location allows.
  • We’ll show you how the right windows can stop winter warmth escaping along with the view, and how skylights can dispel the gloom of a dark space and help ventilate your home.

And, while it’s obviously easier to heat and cool smaller rooms, with Woodford Homes, you can still have an open plan design.

By thinking about ceiling heights, the alignment of your home, zoning certain rooms together and including features like sliding doors, you can create a design that is energy efficient and suits your taste and lifestyle. Read more about energy efficient layout ideas here.

Extend your energy efficiency with Woodford Homes

When it comes to extending your home, we apply the same principles.

  • We’ll use materials that have the right thermal qualities for your climate and the alignment of your home.
  • If you want to open up a view, we’ll factor in your alignment to the sun and recommend double glazing or other energy efficient windows and features to help control the temperature.
  • If you’re extending up, the right ventilation – including certain skylights – can make a huge difference in terms of energy efficiency.
  • We’ll make sure the layout of your extension improves the energy efficiency of your existing home.

We lived overseas during most of the building process. Allen and Lyn looked after every detail with attention and care. They made sure that all of our expectations were met to the highest possible standard. We would recommend Woodford Homes.

We couldn’t be happier with the result of our renovation. The staff and contractors were a pleasure to deal with and any small problems that came up were dealt with without any fuss or bother. In many cases they went over and beyond what we expected. Highly recommended

We are very happy to recommend Woodford Homes to anyone renovating or extending their existing home. We lived in our home during the addition and found the builders were very mindful and accommodating of our needs. They delivered us with a high quality addition to our home. Friends often comment that they don't recognise our house now as it looks like a new home.
