Home energy toolkits

A home energy toolkit

To assist you in auditing the energy use in your home, we offer home energy toolkits

Each toolkit contains:

  • appliance meter - measure energy use, stand-by power, cost and greenhouse gas emissions
  • infrared thermometer - measure hot water temperatures and pinpoint hot and cold spots in a room
  • spirit thermometer - measure room, fridge and freezer temperatures
  • compass - identify the direction the home faces to make the most of the sun's heat
  • stopwatch - calculate the flow rate from your showers and taps
  • guide - information, pictures and diagrams to help you carry out your audit.


To access a toolkit please visit the Unley Libraries, or place a hold on a toolkit via our catalogue.
