Metricon Homes believes all Australians should love where they live and this includes being able to live affordably and comfortably. This is the reason we have partnered with Sustainability Victoria in the Victorian Government’s Zero Net Carbon Homes Program.

Metricon’s first Zero Net Carbon display home is the Delta29MR, currently on display in Officer, VIC at the Kaduna Park Estate.

Instead of designing a brand new home to meet higher energy efficiency standards, it made sense to work with a design that Victorian’s already love – the Delta.

The Delta is one of Metricon’s most popular homes. The single storey best-seller is a favourite with people at all stages of life – from first home buyers, through to families, empty-nesters and retirees. It is much loved due to its versatile floor plan featuring the main living areas at the rear of the home and bedrooms located along one side.

The Officer Delta29MR display home features subtly incorporated energy efficiency inclusions. These inclusions make the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It’s been built to maximise energy efficiency and to lower greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a home designed to save the homeowners money over the term of their ownership and to ensure comfortable living through consistent indoor temperatures.

Although the energy-efficient inclusions have been discretely incorporated so they don’t negatively impact the design aesthetic of this attractive home, don’t let their subtlety trick you – they pack a punch!

This home has a solar power system, higher than standard rating insulation rating, draft seals, double-glazed windows, extraction fans with humidity sensors and LED lighting.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Delta29MR for Sustainable Home Day and for you to experience the comfort of a Zero Net Carbon home first-hand.

 

This house achieved a NatHERS rating of 7 stars using NatHERS accredited software (FirstRate5). Find out how the star ratings work on the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) website.
