Home energy toolkits available from City Libraries
Our Home Energy Toolkits are now available for loan from each of our six libraries. The toolkits will help you learn about energy use in your home to reduce your electricity use, and save money on your bills.
To hire a toolkit visit your local library.
Each Toolkit includes:
- PowerMate Lite to measure the electricity use of plug-in appliances, their cost to run and greenhouse gas emissions
- Infra-red Thermometer to measure the temperatures of hard to reach places so you can check heat gains and losses from your home
- Thermometers to assess outside temperatures and how that impacts your comfort inside.
