Better Design Practice
Improve the efficiency of water systems by:
nsulating the hot water system.
Installing water-saving devices such as flow regulators, AAA rated shower heads, dual flush toilets and tap aerators.
Reduce reliance on artificial lighting by:
Providing a mix of lighting fixtures, including dimmable lighting, to allow for a range of light level requirements(for example, low background lighting supplemented by task or effect lighting).
Using separate lighting circuits for flexibility of use. • Using energy efficient lighting, such as compact fluorescent lights.
Using motion sensor switches in common areas, doorways, entrances, car parks, and for outdoor security lighting.
Maximise the efficiency of household appliances by:
Installing high efficiency refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers, dryers and dishwashers.
Selecting an energy source with minimum greenhouse emissions.
