In addition to Insulation and Ventilation, here are some tips to help make your home greener....

..................................................................................................
In summer close blinds and curtains during the day to prevent heat entering
..................................................................................................
In summer make use of natural ventilation by opening windows once it's cooler outside than inside
..................................................................................................
Grow deciduous trees or vines on a pergola on the north side of your home to provide shading
..................................................................................................
In summer, if you are using an air conditioner set it to a temperature between 24 - 27 degrees C.  Each degree you lower your thermostat, energy consumption increases by about 10%.
..................................................................................................
In winter open blinds and curtains during the day to let the free heat of the sun in - up to 3 kWh of heat per square metre of window can be let in per day, which is equivalent to a single bar radiator running for 3 hours
..................................................................................................
In winter close curtains and blinds at night to keep the heat in - curtains with fitted pelmets are the most effective for this purpose
..................................................................................................
Install draught excluders on doors and windows and seal all gaps to the outside to prevent heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer
..................................................................................................
Switch to energy efficient compact fluorescent lights (CFL) - CFL's use 75% less energy than an equivalent wattage incandescant bulb

..................................................................................................
Switch off appliances at the wall instead of leaving them in standby mode - Appliances on standby consume up to 10% of your electricity bill
..................................................................................................
Divert garden and food waste from landfill to composting - Food and garden wastes create greenhouse gasses when they break down in landfill due to lack of fresh air when decomposing.  For every kilo of organic waste you compost, you will save approximately 1kg of greenhouse gas.
