Increases to the existing BASIX standards came into effect on 1 October 2023.
The increases include higher thermal performance standards and higher energy standards.
There is also a new requirement to calculate and record embodied emissions of building materials.
The new standards will result in:
cheaper energy bills. You’ll use less electricity so your bills will be cheaper – you could be saving as much as $980 a year on energy bills.
more comfortable homes. Your home will be naturally cooler in summer, warmer in winter, which means you won’t be turning the heater or air conditioner on as often.
fewer carbon emissions. This contributes towards our goal of net zero homes by 2050
