Why energy efficiency measures add up in Wagga Wagga homes
Peter Hurst, managing director of Hurst Homes, believes energy-efficiency measures, new technology, and on-trend bathroom, kitchen and laundry inclusions top the wish-lists of Wagga Wagga homeowners, who value the local business’s custom approach to building.
“We work hard to understand what our customers want – and surpass it. It is important to us that we develop good, happy relationships with our customers over the course of a new build, which can take between six and 12 months,” Peter says.
A fixture on the construction scene in Wagga Wagga since 1990, Hurst Homes’ solid foundation in the region can be attributed to the team’s commitment to customer service, passion to continual improvement, and dedication to delivering on detail.
Details around energy efficiency in the home deserve major consideration, as Wagga’s extreme climate impacts on cooling and heating costs. A long-time advocate of sustainable building design, Peter says homeowners now recognise the benefits of “future proofing”.
“Double-glazed windows, solar orientation and good insulation are three measures that will reduce a home’s running costs,” he says. “These features will continue to be of value in the future, which is why the investment in an energy-rated home is worthwhile.”
While a home’s building design is critical to its performance, Peter knows Wagga homeowners want the interior to be on par in style and quality, including kitchen, bathroom and laundry inclusions. That is why Hurst Homes chooses Southern Innovations.
“Beyond the fantastic new Wagga Wagga showroom, products and displays, we work closely with Southern Innovations because of the people,” says Peter. “Area manager, Glenn Jones, and the staff he employs, are always a pleasure to deal with.”
According to Peter, making the new-build experience enjoyable for customers is central to the ethos at Hurst Homes. The collaborative process involves always keeping customers “in the loop” by sending progress photos, scheduling face-to-face catch ups and follow ups.
“At Hurst Homes, we are proactive about providing homeowners with support, even after handover,” he says. “Our after-care service sets us apart. For example, we check-in with our customers at the three-month maintenance period to confirm everything is as it should be.”
