NEW SIX STAR RATINGS

What are Energy Ratings?

A house’s energy equivalence rating is determined by the design of its envelope or ‘shell’—i.e. roof, walls, windows and floors. The rating is out of 10 stars—more stars indicate a more energy efficient and comfortable house. An energy equivalence rating does not take into consideration a house’s fixtures and appliances, such as hot water systems, air conditioners, lighting and fridges.

Will it apply to my new home?

The 6-star requirement applies to all new houses and townhouses (class 1buildings) and enclosed garages(class 10a buildings) attached to class 1 buildings approved after 1 May 2010. The requirement also applies to new work done on existing buildings, such as additions, alterations or re-locations.
