Additional useful generic NatHERS information:
NatHERS in Australia is a certification process and is required for almost all new residential developments, either single or multi types. NatHERS was developed as "a measuring tape" so to estimate a home's use of energy allocated heating & cooling throughout the year and in order to set minimum benchmarks for star rating performance that dwellings are allowed to be built as. Currently with the exception of NSW, in most cases the minimum NatHERS energy rating is 6 stars.
What information is needed to produce a NatHERS certificate?
- Site plan showing true North orientation
- All plans, sections, elevations
- Window schedule
- Construction types
- Colour tones of roof and external walls
- Floor coverings information
Generally, add-on appliances such as, air-conditioners, fans, etc. are not required for a NatHERS assessment as they do not affect the star rating. NatHERS energy ratings are basically translating in terms of heating & cooling loads the sound or not, design of a dwelling.
Thermal comfort - NatHERS is a national scheme, where dwellings are rated according to their thermal performance for summer and winter. That is achieved via the simulation of the proposed dwelling by specialty software packages such as AccuRate, Firstrate and BersPro. The way this is done is the whole geometry of the subject building, including neighbouring buildings for shading, location, orientation and building constructions are inputted. All of the above are calculated thus predicting cooling and heating loads.
NOTE: 7.6 stars depicted in the product image is for demonstration only and in no way we imply or guarantee that the performance of your project will be in line with this.
Nathers certification only valid Australia wide, including stamped drawings. If you require a BASIX certificate, you will need to add this option to your cart.
