‘Nothing beats the winter chill like a hot cup of chai, and its more filling and costs less than cranking up the heater’ Michelle, ACOSS, NSW

“We had old electric column heaters in our office that used enormous amounts of electricity. We also had a ceiling vent that was always open and constantly releasing our warm air straight out through the roof. We blocked up the vent, got rid of the column heaters, and we bought a split system for heating and cooling. Now we are much warmer in winter but we are using a lot less electricity for our heating.” Max, Jika Jika Community Centre

We installed energy saving lights in our foyers, put a chiller on our airconditioner, tinted conservatory windows and installed slimline blinds in our main community space. Now the staff have embraced retro jumpers to keep warm!!!” Denise, The Crows Nest Centre, NSW

“To help cool down the centre in summer, we installed tough security screens on our windows that enable us to open the windows at night and let cool air flow through the building.” Max, Jika Jika Community Centre

We have an old building with no insulation, and for years it’s been horribly uncomfortable, from both heat and cold. We were quoted $15,000 for regular air conditioning to be installed, and this would also have been expensive to run. Instead we decided to install solar air conditioning for $9000, which only costs 50c a day to run at the most. It’s made a huge difference to summer and winter temperatures and our building is much more comfortable. Carol, Edgeworth Neighbourhood Centre, Edgeworth NSW.

My husband keeps warm at work with this jumper I knitted him in 1979. In our office we turn computer monitors off at night! Carolyn, Federation of Community Legal Centres, VIC

“To heat buildings in winter, we installed six solar heating devices (called ‘Solar Sources’) that trap the sun’s rays to heat air, and then use a solar powered fan to pump it through the buildings”. Luke Stange, Ruah Community Services
