Using less energy in the home means less pollution, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and more money in your pocket.
Select energy efficient appliances, especially efficient heating and cooling appliances.
Weatherproofing (draught sealing)
The house should be well sealed from draughts.
Living room windows should face north to take advantage of the winter sun to help warm the home.
Window sizing and shading
The size of windows and protection of windows from the summer sun can affect comfort in the home.
Zoning and cross ventilation
Design the home to allow cooling breezes through the house in summer and only heat / cool areas that you need to.
Good insulation helps keep warm air in the home in winter and the heat out in summer.
Solar hot water systems
Solar hot water systems can reduce your annual electricity costs on average by 60 – 75%, which could save an average family up to $165 per year.
Install safety switches
These switches will cut off power to a circuit if there is an electrical fault or leak. Contact a registered electrical contractor or your local electricity provider for further advice.
