Home Energy Audit Kits
Now available at the Council are Home Energy Audit Toolkits (HEAT) which can be borrowed free of charge by Launceston's residents. HEAT provides practical tools and information to help householders conduct a simple home audit and discover easy ways to cut their households energy costs.
The kits contain a number of tools including a Power-Mate, which is a small meter that displays energy usage and cost for appliances, an infrared thermometer, room thermometer and a range of other tools. The tools come with supporting information describing how and where to use the tools for key areas of energy use and cost saving opportunities in the home (such as Fridges/Freezers; Cooking; Entertainment; Home Office and Hot Water etc.).
