REDUCING costs in these difficult times has become a priority of families all around the country. One area families can generate savings while also helping the environment is spend their Australian Government handout on projects that conserve water and reduce energy costs in the home and garden. While some of the strategies can be costly initially, they will generate long term savings year in year out. The installation of water tanks, greywater systems and purchasing new energy rating appliances will all help reduce energy costs and save water for many years ahead. The Australian Government is doing its bit for home owners As part of its $42 billion National Building and Jobs Plan, home owners can insulate their homes free or install a solar hotwater

service and receive a rebate of $1600. There are various strategies that can be implemented quickly and cheaply. A recent sustainability survey has found families are already implementing them: PSpending less time in the shower and collecting the water for the garden. P Installing a water saving shower head. P Replacing dead plants with drought-proof plants and installing a tap timer and drip system to keep your garden thriving. P Making your own compost and mulch garden beds. P Switching off appliances in the home and buying products with a high energy rating. P Install insulation, door seals and external blinds to reduce heating and cooling costs. Your local tradespeople are a good source for ideas and cost-efficient ways to further reduce your carbon footprint.
