Get to know your Liv Apartment

Nov 17, 2017

When it comes to buying a new home, there is a lot to think about. How can I ensure I set myself up for saving money on my electricity bill, how do I make sure my apartment is easy to maintain, and can making the right choice reduce my environmental footprint? With a 4-star Green Star equivalent rating, a One Planet Community rating, and a 7.5 star Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme average rating, you can trust that Liv Apartments has done the thinking for you.

Features in your Liv development

Liv was not only designed to capture the unique character of the Fremantle community. When you look into the quality and the thought put behind the choice of materials, finishes and appliances you will find that nothing has been left to chance.

If you’re cost conscious and mindful of the environment, you will appreciate Liv’s energy saving inclusions like ceiling fans only using as much power as a 60-watt light globe, and the use of LED lighting throughout the complex. LED lights tend to use about 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lights and last you around 15,000-50,000 hours, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and reducing landfill.

Liv has also invested in water and energy efficient fittings and fixtures such as the EDMI Submetering feature, which allows you to track the energy and water consumption of your apartment. This can guide you in waste reduction strategies by identifying unnecessary equipment running at night, off shift, or during the weekend.

Double glazed windows will further reduce your bills by keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter, and lower UV radiation by 99% – increasing the life of your furniture.

If you’re committed to recycling as much as possible, you will appreciate the mobile bin service available at Liv – the GaiaRecycle – a unique and odour-free process that transforms food waste into recyclable pulp which is used to produce organic fertiliser.

Not only are high efficiency appliances, increased insulation, reduced lighting loads, passive solar heating, ventilation and water conservation measures great for the environment – they are also great for your wallet.

Research has shown that investing in a sustainable property like Liv can bring you a higher return on your investment. The McGraw Hill construction report found green buildings can increase building values by 7.5% and improve ROI by 6.6%.

It’s a win-win situation!
