Ventilation

Ventilating the roof or attic space reduces the heat build-up by expelling hot air which enables it to be replaced with ambient temperature air from outside. Our wide range of ventilation systems suit almost any lifestyle or budget.

BERS Assessment

BERS Assessments only examine the thermal performance of your home and DO NOT, assess the energy efficiency of hot water, lighting, power use or generation.

When building a new home, you should ask your builder about future proofing your new home by ensuring your power bill is neutralised. Contact us today so that you Ecolife expert might provide a BERS assessment and energy audit on your new home.

Important Legislation

Mandatory Disclosure
Most states of Australia now require you to disclose the energy efficiency standard of your home. Depending on where you live you may be required to have your house upgraded to meet a minimum Star Rating or in other cases, you may just be required to provide a disclosure form that highlights the energy efficiency measures in your home.

Licensed Installers
Depending on the state you live in, most retailers that offer supply and installation are required to be licensed to install the products you purchase from them. Likewise if they are not licensed it is illegal for them to provide you with a product or service conditional on using a third party installer. In some states it is not a requirement to be licensed to install insulation, vents or skylights, but in all states and territories it is a requirement that hot water units and solar power systems are installed by appropriately licensed and accredited tradespeople.

Solar Power and Wind Power Installers
All states require Solar Power systems and Wind Power generation systems to be installed by Clean Energy Council accredited, licensed electricians. You will not be able to claim STC rebates if the electrician is found to not be properly qualified. Ensure you ask to see installation qualifications.

Hot Water
Hot water systems must always be installed by a licensed plumber. In some states it is a requirement for plumbers to have specialised training and qualifications in installing heat pumps, solar hot water or gas systems. Government rebate schemes specifically require some of the qualifications.

Ecolife Solutions Installers
All Ecolife Solutions installers are licensed and qualified and meet the state and territory legislative requirements in the states and territories that we offer supply and installation services within.
