Sustainability is about making sure the social, economic and environmental needs of our community are met and kept healthy for future generations. As an agency of the Victorian Government, Sustainability Victoria has a simple goal: to integrate sustainability into all aspects of Victorian life so that living sustainably forms part of what we all do every day. At Hermitage Homes we are committed to this philosophy. All our homes are built to a minimum 6 Star energy rating which is the maximum rating under Sustainability Victoria’s FirstRate program.
There are many components within a new home that contribute to its energy efficiency. Some of these items come standard in our homes and include:
Insulation - a superior level of insulation to ceilings and external walls keeps the heat in during winter and the heat out during summer saving you money on your cooling and heating bills. Solar Hot Water using solar energy to heat your water supply not only helps the environment but saves you hundreds of dollars on your household energy bills every year.
