Information to help the environment and save money at home

Housing NSW is committed to improving the environmental sustainability of social housing in NSW.

We have updated policies to ensure that new homes are more energy and water efficient and we have implemented a range of programs to upgrade existing homes.

Some of our achievements include installing ceiling insulation in 13,590 homes in cold climate areas, over 3,800 solar hot water systems and over 100,000 water efficient showerheads.

With rising energy and water prices there are many things that we can all do to save money and also help the environment.

This booklet contains a range of handy tips to help you make your home more efficient at minimal or no cost. Making small changes to the way you do things can reduce your energy and water bills, saving you money.

Use this information as a guide to get you started.
