Sustainable homes

​​With climate change and rising energy costs, reducing energy is an urgent priority.

Since most Australian homes are energy inefficient - either too cold or too hot and quite expensive to run - the City of Kwinana would like to encourage owners and potential buyers to consider sustainable design principles when considering a new home or upgrading an existing one.

Sustainable design principles

Building a home using good design principles can reduce your energy consumption, water-use and energy bills. It also offers a comfortable living environment.

These design principles include:​

  • site selection;
  • orientation;
  • room layout;
  • windows and ventilation;
  • insulation;
  • sealing; 
  • colour and exteriors;
  • glazing;
  • s​hading and landscaping; and
  • appliances.

Water efficiency

Water is in critically short supply in areas of Wes​​tern Australia. Simple measures like fitting water efficient showerheads can help to reduce household water consumption. Rainwater tanks can serve as a supplementary water supply and water conservation techniques can be used to reduce outdoor water-use.
