Sustainable House Day to Show the Benefits of an Energy Efficient Home

As part of the 7th annual Sustainable House Day, homes across the country will open so others can learn and experience the benefits of all aspects of sustainable living. And what’s more, these houses appear normal on the outside…so it’s only when stepping inside that the learning begins!

Event organiser Judy Celmins said “Over the 7 years Sustainable House Day has been showing people the benefits of energy efficiency in their homes, we have seen a dramatic increase in interest. People now realise they need to reduce their energy, water and waste needs in their home…but are confused on where to start.

That’s where Sustainable House Day can help. There is nothing better than talking to people who have already done it. You can learn the good, and the bad, from the home owner’s personal experience and talk to architects. And once you have experienced living in a home that is cool in summer, without airconditioning, and warm in winter with little or no heating, it’s hard not to get excited.”

Judy Celmins said “there will be a variety of sustainable living tips on display at the houses open this year. The aim is to motivate, and provide information so people can go home and start implementing some of the fundamentals straight away. ”

You can find an open house in your area by logging onto from August 2008. Tickets can be purchased at any house visited for $5 per person per house, children free.
