National Construction Code Changes 2023

Adapting to the 2023 NCC Changes: The Double Glazing Master’s Approach to Enhanced Energy Efficiency

The recent amendments in the National Construction Code (NCC) 2023 represent a significant stride towards heightened Energy Efficiency & Sustainability within the Building Industry. At Double Glazing Masters, we understand the necessity to decode these changes, particularly as they align with our core mission which is the manufacture of Sustainable & Energy Efficient Windows & Doors.

NCC 2023 Energy Efficiency

Phase 2 of the 2023 NCC updates particularly stands out, owing to its focus on Energy Efficiency and overall reduction of energy usage in buildings. As part of these changes, the star rating required for the building fabric has increased. An additional Whole of Home Rating has also been introduced, extending to Windows & Doors, amongst other elements of a build.

These updates represent a harmonious concurrence with Double Glazing Masters’ ethos. As proponents of Energy Efficient Solutions for Windows & Doors, we incorporate state-of-the-art design and sustainable materials in our production process. Our products play a crucial role in enhancing a building’s Thermal Performance, enabling us to meet the rising standards set by NCC 2023.

When it comes to residential energy efficiency, the NCC has introduced pivotal changes:

  • Thermal performance requirements have been increased to 7 stars under the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS).
  • A new Whole-of-Home Rating now applies to heating and cooling, hot water systems, lighting, swimming pool and spa pumps, and importantly, windows and doors.

At Double Glazing Masters, we offer Double Glazed Windows, which significantly contribute to thermal insulation, hence optimising your home’s energy consumption. Our windows are carefully engineered to keep your home’s energy under budget, providing you with a warm and dry indoor environment, even during colder months.

Double Glazed Windows have proven instrumental in managing condensation within residential buildings. They minimise cold surfaces where warm, moist indoor air can cool and condense, thus reducing damage to window frames and the proliferation of mould. Our Double Glazed Windows & Doors ensure that condensation issues become a thing of the past, even in traditionally moist areas such as bathrooms.

NCC 2023 combines Stages 1 and 2 to create a more accessible and sustainable building code. Along with the updates to energy efficiency, there are important changes that you should be aware of. Notably, increased quantification has been introduced in areas such as water efficiency and heated water temperature delivery, which will further assist practitioners and designers in meeting the Performance Requirements.

Additionally, the 2023 NCC updates have introduced provisions to boost accessible housing, supporting Australians with a disability, older Australians, their families and carers. This enhances the liveability of houses, townhouses, and individual apartments.

Fire Safety, Water & Weather Proofing

Fire safety, waterproofing and weatherproofing have also seen substantial amendments. At Double Glazing Masters, our systems are designed to withstand exposure to Australia’s harsh weather conditions, without deterioration, ensuring the long-lasting performance of our products. We even boast BAL40 Bush Fire Safe Windows.

Double Glazing Masters are Committed to Energy Efficiency

The Double Glazing Masters team is delighted with the NCC 2023 focus on energy efficiency in the Australian building industry. We stand committed to delivering outstanding thermal performance through our energy-efficient, Double Glazed Windows & Doors.

We invite you to join us in embracing these changes, as we strive towards a more sustainable future. For more information about our products or the 2023 NCC updates, please contact us today.
