A 6 Star Energy Rating is a score which reflects a home's ability to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, with minimal help from heaters or air-conditioners. Although any score of between 0 and 10 stars is possible, most states in Australia now require new homes to have a minimum 6 Star Energy Rating. Specialised software called FirstRate5 is used to assess a house design, and considers things such as the materials of walls, roofs and floors, as well as glazing, insulation, and the size, climate zone and orientation of the building. Only a trained and accredited assessor can certify a home with a 6 Star Energy Rating.
