We are excited to announce a brand new range of homes, unlike any before. Weeks presents Evolution, a range of homes unmatched in performance. Through intelligent design and energy saving inclusions, building an Evolution home results in a lower cost of ownership and an unmatched level of comfort and acoustic performance. This is made possible by the inclusion of revolutionary technologies such as the Supaloc® and Thermaloc® systems. Evolution homes also provide the option of a unique combination of energy saving inclusions and smart design choices.
UNDERSTANDING ENERGY RATINGS
When it comes to building a new home, the upfront costs and affordability are certainly a determining factor in your choice of residence. However, as energy costs continue to rise, the living costs you will experience over the life of your home also need to be considered.
Star ratings are a Government initiative to assist you in determining how efficient the home you plan to build will be. In plain terms, the more energy stars your home has, the more comfortable it is, with less need for heating or cooling. The South Australian Government introduced National energy efficiency regulations in 2010, resulting in a minimum 6 star rating requirement.
Thermaloc® is a structural building system that combines the strength of Supaloc® steel framing with the outstanding thermal properties of rigid cellular insulation. Rigid cellular insulation is a lightweight material produced by expanding solid beads of polystyrene (EPS). EPS acts as an acoustic and thermal insulator, due to its closed cell structure. This significantly inhibits the passage of heat or cold, resulting in a high capacity for thermal insulation.
