What You Need To Know About Solar Panels

You’ve heard of solar panels before, maybe on TV, radio or in magazines, but do you know what they actually are? Do you know why they really benefit the environment? Or why they’re something that you should invest in?

With an abundance of upgrade packages available on the market that offer features such as luxurious stone benches and grand high ceilings, it’s not unusual for exterior upgrades to be forgotten. At New Living Homes, not only do we have a great selection of affordable upgrades for the inside of the house but we also offer a package for the outside that will benefit you for years to come – a solar panel package. Here’s what you need to know about solar panels and why they’re demanded by homeowners.

What Are Solar Panels?

Solar panels or “PV panels” are power systems installed onto the roofs of homes to convert light from the sun into energy – better known for everyday use as electricity. They absorb the energy during the day for electricity that is often used at night. The accumulated power can run everyday living necessities such as lights, cooking appliances, the washing machine – everything down to the pool.

The panels are flat and positioned strategically on roofs to be exposed to the most sunlight possible. They are not bulky and blend seamlessly onto modern roofs, so there’s no need to worry about it effecting your house design. Solar panels require very little maintenance and are sturdily built to last for decades. There are different sizes of panels – ones that store enough energy for two people and ones that are larger and more appropriate for large families. Ask our expert staff about which solar panel will benefit your home the most.

Will You Save Money With Solar Panels?

Because solar panels use a natural energy source, you will not require as much electricity (if any) from the grid supplied by electrical companies. While some people hesitate to commit to the upfront costs of solar panels, they are an investment that save hundreds or even thousands of dollars off of your energy bills in the long run. Believe it or not, you can even sell excess energy to your electricity company and make money!

Relying on your own energy means that you can also go off-grid with stored energy, for example remote homes and caravans. After the initial set up, which is where the cost lies, the energy that the system produces for you is free for years to come! With New Living Homes, our solar packages are tailored to suit every budget and provide a feasible option for everyday Aussies building their dream home.

Why Are Solar Panels Good For The Environment?

By relying on the sun instead of traditional energy sources such as coal and gas, solar panels reduce the production of harmful fossil fuels. Coal and natural gas are limited resources, and their fossil fuels that are burnt to produce energy result in air and water pollution, and contribute to global climate change. Not only is sunlight free and limitless, it allows solar panels to produce a source of energy that is clean and renewable. They then have less impact on the environment and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, ultimately relieving the pressure from our atmosphere.

It’s important to do our part to help the planet, and solar panels are an innovative way to do so. It requires very little effort – only a professional for installation and the panels will do the rest!

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
