- Reduce heat loss
Boost ceiling, underfloor and wall insulation, double glaze with low-emissivity glass and thermally-broken window frames and use two layers of thermally-backed full length curtains.
- Efficiently heat your home
Position your home and windows to face the sun and choose an efficient heating system able to warm living areas to a minimum of 18°C and bedrooms to a minimum of 16°C.
- Control moisture at the source
Remove damp air from your home by installing an extractor fan in all bathrooms, a range hood in the kitchen and vent your clothes-dryer to the outside.
- Be water-wise
Insulate hot water pipes and hot water cylinders, choose water-efficient taps, low-flow showerheads, dual flush toilets, and water-efficient washing machines and dishwashers.
- Regularly ventilate your home
Open windows and doors for a few minutes each day to remove moisture and allow fresh air to circulate throughout your home.
