Hierarchy of energy efficiency options
We start with the DTS and 6 star energy rating solution first, and if it fails to comply with code, or if compliance is cost prohibitive, we then discuss with you to the other energy rating or performance-based solution options.
GeoFlow’s energy modelling and performance-based solutions are implemented in a 3D dimensional modelling tool (TRNSYS), which enables the holistic modelling of the building so that construction costs can be significantly lowered.
EXPLANATION OF TERMS USED IN ENERGY COMPLIANCE REPORTS
National Construction Code of Australia has many energy specific terms that Geoflow also uses in its reports. Here is a glossary list of some of the ones we most frequently use.
