Australian homeowners are missing out on the opportunity to add real value to their homes by not making the most of their renovations.
The current consumer appetite for renovation is reflected in data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, which highlights the number of people across Australia pouring money into their properties, with New South Wales homeowners spending $1.9 billion on home renovations1.
High performance homes use fewer resources by using smart, energy efficient design and technology and sustainable, environmentally friendly products. Once considered ‘unaffordable’, energy efficient products are now more commonly available, so pricing has improved significantly helping make high performance homes more attainable.
“The rising interest in home renovations is visible everywhere. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing a renovation show, as people become more conscious of upgrading their properties,” explains Viridian’s Home Comfort General Manager, Daniel Black.
“While much of the focus of TV renovation shows is on quick fix solutions and aesthetic benefits, Australians looking to transform their properties into high performing homes need to consider changes that offer long term benefits.”
