Why Choose a HOW – Nanohome over a traditional granny flatMarch 14, 2017
How to Live Harmoniously with Tenants in Your Granny FlatMarch 31, 2017
Pre-fabricated pod homes are changing the way we look at sustainable living.
Cutting edge technology, renewable building materials and energy efficient innovations have transformed the humble ‘granny flat’ into a comfortable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly living option.
Nano Homes’ high-tech modular home designs are revolutionising backyards across Australia and are leading the trend towards ‘green homes’ offering lower living costs and creating a smaller environmental footprint.
By harnessing Mother Nature
A solar power system can drastically reduce your electricity bill, and your carbon footprint. In fact, the average-sized solar electricity system can save up to three tonnes of carbon emissions each year – that’s equivalent to planting 77 trees!
Nano Homes can be fitted with a 2kW-5kW solar system as well as a 1000L water tank to harvest rain water for use in the home.
By sourcing energy-efficient appliances and materials
Appliances account for around 30% of home energy use. By including high quality, energy-efficient appliances as standard with every build, a Nano Home saves electricity and money.
The intelligent use of high performance, lightweight, fire resistant, durable and environmentally friendly building materials also adds to the ‘green appeal’ of a Nano Home.
Double-glazed windows provide superior insulation and soundproofing. Sustainably sourced bamboo flooring is durable and needs far less maintenance than traditional hardwood floors. LED down lights use less energy than traditional bulbs to perfectly illuminate living areas.
We’ve thought of everything.
With an intelligent energy management system
Nano Homes use the Australian-designed ZOO Energy Management System to monitor and manage energy consumption and reduce costs. You have fingertip control over heating, cooling, lighting and electricity use and you can even access the system remotely via your phone or tablet.
With the average Australian house now pushing 240m2, it’s time to re-think the granny flat.
Simple lifestyle changes can make a huge difference to the environment – and to your wallet. Could a comfortable, luxurious and budget-friendly Nano Home be the perfect solution for you?
