Some helpful tips are:

  • If possible, position your living areas on the north side of your house
  • Position windows on the north side, ideally with a verandah
  • Eaves are great for blocking out the summer sun but still allowing the winter sun in
  • Double glazing windows
  • Position laundry's, toilets, bathrooms etc. on the south side
  • External awnings over windows help with keeping the summer heat out of your house
  • Pull down block out blinds on windows help with trapping the heat in your house on those cold winter nights
