The NatHERS interactive climate zone map is a useful visual representation of the 69 NatHERS climate zones and can be accessed online from the NatHERS website. Work was recently undertaken to update the map in order to ensure it aligns with NatHERS software tools. Unfortunately these updates took longer than expected and the interactive climate zone map was unavailable while the updates took place.
The improved NatHERS interactive climate zone map is now once again accessible online, however as noted in the NatHERS Technical Note v1.2 clause 4.5.4 ‘the NatHERS online Climate Zone map is for assessor reference only and the software selection of climate zone has preference.’ Please continue to use the climate zones as provided in the NatHERS software tools.
The interactive climate zone map can be accessed from the climate zone page of the NatHERS website.
At the same time as updating the interactive climate zone map, work was conducted to align the Western Australia (WA) postcode to climate zone information in NatHERS software tools with the Technical Requirements and climate zone variations outlined by the WA Government. NatHERS accredited software tools will be rolling out the WA changes shortly.
