Home and Building

There are lots of things you can do around your home, or to any building, to reduce your environmental impact and improve your well-being.


Some initial steps you could take to get started would be:

  1. Draught seal your house
  2. Add pelmets and heavy curtains
  3. Insulate your ceiling
  4. Shade externally to stop summer sun
  5. Add double-glazed windows
  6. Insulate your walls and floor
  7. Adjust your house to orient living areas to the north

The following resources provide a wealth of information on all things home and building related. If there are other resources that you think should be added to this list, please let us know.
