CancelledPractical home energy efficiency with Lucinda

Due to COVID restrictions this event will be rescheduled


Join us to get a better understanding of how your home uses energy, and how to become more energy efficient and comfortable in both summer and winter. 

In this workshop we will cover:

  • zoning
  • solar access
  • common sources of draughts and what to do about them
  • insulation (ceiling, underfloor and walls)
  • windows (glazing, coverings and shade)
  • the main fixed appliances (hot water, heating, cooling, lighting) and 
  • solar PV.

We'll look at a range of low, medium and high cost upgrade options, with particular focus on practical ways to DIY, and some rebates/financial incentives you might be eligible for.

The presentation will include lots of photos of common issues and fixes, links to suppliers, installers and DIY guides.

Prior to the workshop, participants will be invited to fill in a form with some basic details about their building shell and main fixed appliances, to ensure we cover the most relevant issues/opportunities.

Proudly brought to you as part of Nillumbik Shire Council’s annual Spring Outdoors program in conjunction with Manningham and Banyule councils.
