So the first thing to address with efficiency and energy efficiency in your home is making sure you going to purchase a block with correct orientation. You want a block where you can orientate your house and your living areas in your house and main living areas where you are going to spend most of your time to a northern aspect.

Obviously you don’t really want a block that faces north being the road because it is very hard to have your living areas out the front of your house, so any block that face east, west or south you can work with and generally orient all your living areas to the northern sun. Which means in our climate in Orange, in this area in the Central West is that the advantage of having living areas on the north is we can take advantage of the northern winter sun which will help warm our homes and keep it bright, light through the winter months and cooler months.
