BUILDING a sustainable home will help save the environment – and lots of your cash in the long run.
Right Homes in Perth is a market leader in sustainability and has been helping its customers design and build “green” homes since 2006.
Prior to establishing the company, directors Gary and Anna Wright operated their own successful carpentry business and forged relationships with some of the best and most reliable tradies in Perth.
“By adopting a few key elements of solar passive design – being orientation, insulation, thermal mass and ventilation – we can achieve some great results at little or no extra cost, potentially saving hundreds of dollars by reducing our overall energy costs to heat and cool our homes,” Gary says.
“Most home buyers think long and hard about their budget when they plan to builda new dwelling, but many may not consider other important issues such as the future health of the occupants or how expensive their home will be to run.
“It makes sense to have a residence that considers all forms of accessibility, how to use water more wisely and how to heat and cool your home naturally.”
Over the years Right Homes has taken out a swag of sustainability awards for its WA homes, including a waterwise gong at the Master Builders Awards in 2017 for a house on Elizabeth Street in Bayswater.
‘This outstanding Project Home development showcases that energy efficiency can go hand in hand with comfortable living and clever design,’ wrote judges.
‘Due to design and orientation, this home has a high energy rating (9 starsBERS) and is comfortable andaffordable to live in.’
The Wrights say the best time to consider sustainability is at the beginning of the design process.
“Talk to us about what is possible and how affordable different options are before even looking at getting plans drawn or committing to a design,” Gary says.
“All current staff at RightHomes are GreensmartProfessionals and arepassionate about demonstrating that energy efficiency and high star ratings can be affordable.”
