By strategically orienting and designing structures to take advantage of the sun’s path, natural light, and thermal energy, solar passive design harnesses solar radiation to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures throughout the year. Additionally, solar passive design can enhance occupant comfort and well-being by providing consistent indoor temperatures and ample natural daylight, creating a more pleasant and sustainable living or working environment.

Energy-efficient Glazing, These features help minimize heat transfer through windows, reducing the need for heating and cooling energy. By improving thermal insulation, energy-efficient glazing helps maintain more stable indoor temperatures, enhancing comfort for occupants and reducing energy bills. Additionally, by allowing natural light to penetrate while minimizing heat loss or gain, energy-efficient glazing contributes to creating brighter and more pleasant indoor spaces, promoting productivity and well-being. Overall, it’s a win-win solution for energy savings, comfort, and environmental sustainability

Premium appliances often feature advanced technologies, higher-quality materials, and meticulous craftsmanship, resulting in enhanced efficiency, reliability, and longevity compared to standard appliances.

Efficient Isolation. Have your home work for you!

The ramifications of the COVID-19 outbreak are being felt all across the world, with a significant majority of professional workplaces being forced into isolation and working from home. Closure of ‘non-essential’ businesses is forcing many more workers to self-isolate in their homes.

With many of us adopting this work-from-home regime for the first time in our careers, there are many pitfalls we could fall into – increased heating & electricity costs, food shortages and water bills. There are a great many unknowns about the coming months, but it is essential that your home be as efficient as possible – and why not make it work for you, while you focus on the important aspects of your life.

In the lead up to the launch of our new service, The Green Network, we wanted to list out 5 products that could drastically improve your home’s efficiency and save you money and time in the long run.

5. Philips Hue

Your home’s lighting controlled from your phone or smart assistant. You think you’ve forgotten to turn the bathroom & bedroom lights off, but you’re too engrossed in your favourite Netflix series to get up and check – all with the tap of a button, you can stay settled and your lights are put out.

Not only will you save time and energy by installing Philips Lighting and Smart Switches, but they will also keep money in your pocket every quarter.

Philips LEDs use up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescents while producing the same beautiful warm light you are used to. A Philips LED bulb can last for up to 15,000 hours, which is equal to 15 incandescents. So not only will you have to change fewer bulbs, there will be less waste as a result. Your home is worth investing in – let Philips help. – Philips Hue – Energy Efficiency Report

4. Redlight – Solar LED’s

If you’ve got a bit more time to install and upgrade fixtures (we recommend a professional installation), the Redlight solar LED’s are a fantastic, and efficient, alternative to the traditional light fixture.

These LED’s mimic real sunlight throughout your home – as if you had your own skylight in every room. Plus – some fixtures put out 8x the standard lumens for its standard wattage. Meaning you’ll get much better light for your dollar! 
“The 6 watt Redilight has an approximate lumen output of a traditional 50-watt incandescent globe in full sun” – Redlight

3. Smart Powerboard

The ARLEC Smart Powerboard can be installed anywhere throughout your home. We would recommend as a basic step, installing powerboards with individual power switches. However, if you want to embrace smart technology, the ARLEC is for you.

You left the iron on after getting your shirt ready for that client meeting over Skype. Bring up the app and simply turn the power off – preventing you from running out of the meeting or having your house burn down!

As a Bonus – the ARLEC works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant – once again, you can make someone else do the work for you!

2. The Oomph – Portable Coffee

Due to recent announcements surrounding Public Safety, your local cafe may be in a form of lockdown and/or you may not be able to leave your home. So how would you get your morning coffee kick?

At Green Homes, working from home seems to increase our desire for coffee consumption, however, if we couldn’t leave our homes we would be stuck with sachet’s or instant – that’s where the Oomph comes in. Compress and make your own coffee at your desk, on the go or next to your toaster.

Stop throwing away coffee cups, pods and the like – make your own quarantined coffee! And once your favourite cafe has re-opened, use it as a one-stop Travel Mug!

1. Google Home

A personal favourite of the crew at Green Homes. The Google Home range offers a crazy level of support throughout your home – from turning lights & TVs on, to changing the temperature of your air-conditioner as well as managing your entire calendar.

Set your Google Home up on your mobile and control everything from your mobile remotely. Just like the commercials, it is like having your own personal assistant at a moments notice.

From reading you the latest news, playing new episodes of your favourite podcasts and updating you with the latest traffic report – your Google Home truly works for you.

“Hey Google.” Power the Next Generation of Green, Smart Homes

There is a common misconception in this interconnected marketplace, that by turning your home into a ‘smart home’ is converting it into a green, sustainable home. This thought bubble is incorrect. However, when building your new Green Home, everyone who wants to ride the way of a connected life should talk to their builder about making it a ‘Smart Home.’

But how does one save energy using more electrical devices? A recent article from The Conversation suggested that in a trial of 46 homes, a majority indicated that they used these smart devices as a chance for a lifestyle change, rather than directly aiming to reduce electricity. The results? Positive! There is a well-known fact that nobody wants to get up and turn off lights/power points throughout the house when watching the Grand Final. Well smart devices, such as Google Home and TP Link Smart Plugs, allow you to do it from the comfort of your lounge.

It is inevitable that homes of the future will be completely integrated with the cloud – whether we like it or not, allowing us to know when we are low on milk or out of cereal. With the global growth and awareness of tech giant, Tesla, has generated a plethora of discussions online regarding the future of electricity and ‘the grid.’ With energy prices on the rise – only to increase in the near future – how does one make sure that their green smart home is equipped with the latest energy saving tools?

The evolution of Google’s assistant from simply giving you directions to telling you about your day, means that over time she will learn your habits, which rooms you spend the most time in, when you turn the kettle on each morning to give you a shot of coffee. But instead of leaving the kettle in standby mode on all night & day, what if you could set it to turn on between 7 – 8 am? With devices such as the aforementioned TP-Link smart plugs, you can do exactly that – however not just limited to the kettle, any power-point controlled device can be remotely shut-off (not put into standby, completely turned off). Not only does this give you complete control over your home from your mobile phone or smart assistant, these plugs allow you to measure the energy output from that specific plug – giving you real time access to see your expenditure.

Green Homes can be Smart Homes. You could build a standard house, and then purchase smart devices, install them and use them – they will assist you in seeing your energy output and automate your life, however you lack the key ingredient. Energy Efficiency at the core of the home to begin with, allowing for your lifestyle to be at the forefront, combine that with the power of smart homes and you will potentially see even further savings, as well as a much more automated lifestyle.
