Energy Efficient Homes

Going Solar takes a holistic approach to energy efficiency. Rather than just selling renewable energy systems, we like to help our customers reduce their demand for energy.

We have two services available for householders: an Energy Walk-Through to help you make your current home more energy efficient, and Ecologically Sustainability Design consultancy if you're building a new home or planning a major renovation.

Energy Walk-Through

The Energy Walk-Through is literally a walk through your home. We talk to you as we identify potential issues and solutions. We'll help you save energy costs and keep warm during winter and cool during summer. The walk-through takes about one hour and costs $220.00 including GST

The Energy Walk-Through covers building insulation, glazing, ventilation, internal and external blinds, lighting, energy efficient appliances and other energy efficient practices. 

Don't worry if your home is a sustainability disaster zone: the walk-through is not about making you feel guilty, but helping you make positive changes.

Contact us today to book an Energy Walk-Through.

Ecologically Sustainable Development

Ecologically sustainable development (ESD) is the core principle of Going Solar's work. We work with anyone building or renovating a home to make informed decisions about design during the research and planning process. This includes:

  • understanding your sustainablity options
  • suggesting sustainable design solutions for your site
  • assessing suitable products and options
  • producing a list of recommendations
  • estimating costs and prices

Contact us today to talk about Ecologically Sustainable Development.
