Why Solar Hot Water Is a Smart Choice for Your Modular Home

If you’re building a new home, it makes sense to research your options carefully – especially when it comes to your hot water service.

After all, water heating is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from the average Australian home and can account for 25% of your household’s energy usage.

For your hot water system, there are four main choices: electric, gas, heat pump and solar. When building a new modular home, both gas instantaneous and electric storage systems are available as a standard inclusion. Both are good options, but if you’re serious about long-term benefits you can’t go past solar.

Process Focus: Site Work on Modular Homes

The final article in our Process Focus series looks at the work of our on-site team. This stage of your project includes site preparation, delivery and installation, and all the finishing touches to complete your home so it’s ready for handover.

We keep it short by beginning our site preparation while your home is being constructed, which is another way modular homes can be built faster. 

Here’s an overview of the site work process, week-by-week so you know what to expect.
