What Is NatHERS And How Does It Work?

NatHERS & How It Works

The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) is a pivotal tool for assessing the energy efficiency of homes across Australia. It utilizes advanced software to calculate a home’s energy usage, assigning a rating from 0 to 10 stars. The higher the number of stars, the more energy-efficient the home is, indicating less artificial heating and cooling is needed to maintain comfort. This system considers various factors, including the home’s design, location, orientation, building materials, and windows, using CSIRO’s historical climate data for accuracy. NatHERS ratings are essential for meeting the minimum compliance targets set by BASIX and the National Construction Code, ensuring homes are built to efficient energy standards. Engaging with experts like Frys Energywise early in the planning process is recommended to ensure compliance and optimize energy efficiency in new builds or renovations.
