Sustainable Homes That Won't Cost The Earth
ECO GREEN HOMES is an innovative company offering homebuyers the ability to achieve their dream of owning a green, modern, liveable, eco-friendly, energy efficient and sustainable home that won't cost the earth.
So far we have two projects we have completed with great successes in the individual focus area. Details of two are below.
- Our green homes have achieved 8 out of 10 stars on HERS (home energy rating system)
- 10 years standard NZ builders warranty
- Triple glazed + low E + Argon gas filled windows with 5mm thick glass and safety glass
- Wall insulation starts from R3.8 – R6.00
- Green building material solar panel, geothermal options
- Choice of non VOC paints and mineral based plaster allowing the walls to breath.
Aim was to create an overall well balanced family home. Most of the features included exceed NZ standards by 2-3 times. For example, while NZ code needs R 2.2 wall insulation, we have used R 6. While double glazed windows are the standard requirement for NZ homes, we have opted for UPVC triple glazed low E, argon gas filled windows to minimise the heat loss increasing heating efficiency.
Aim; to build a home that achieved 8 STAR on HERS (Home Energy Rating System)
Floating foundation and underfloor heating system with Upvc Veka Triple glazed windows; insulated roof air membrane above the ceiling; achieved air tightness of < 0.6 at 50Pa (passive house standard); German heat recovery system >90% efficiency; passive house certified.
