Home health checks

Changes made based on the findings of the check could result in an average electricity bill saving of $300 a year.
The offer included:
- a free home health check, advice and personalised report
- up to 10 LED light bulbs per household
- an installed iSmart hot water controller (conditions and limits apply)
- access to
grants for insulation and other energy efficient interventions.
