With Thermacell you can achieve 5-Star Energy ratings, which are now mandatory in house planning in most states of Australia.
The use of the Thermacell system greatly assists your project in achieving the stringent energy ratings that are the standard for all new constructions. Thermacell homes have frequently achieved almost twice the energy ratings that most standard homes achieve.
It’s important to remember, however, that a higher energy efficiency rating can be achieved if the Thermacell system is combined with the use of complementary features, such as double-glazed windows and good ceiling insulation. Many different elements of a house can be rated to score the points required to be a star-rated energy-efficient house - Thermacell is brilliant, but it can’t produce a strong rating on its own.
It therefore makes good sense to use building materials throughout the whole construction that add to the final energy rating. In so doing, your house will have the highest possible energy rating - and the long-term cost savings - that go hand-in-hand with energy efficiency.
