Exclusive and free to Ku-ring-gai residents, take the first step to improving the energy and water efficiency of your home and reducing your utility bills. Book a free home sustainability assessment with one of our Greenstyle Advisors today.

Home sustainability advice

A Greenstyle Home Assessment begins with an analysis of your energy and water bills. A walk-through of your home with our Greenstyle Advisor will help identify more opportunities for savings. You will also have the opportunity to share any queries or concerns. A visit to your home will take 1.5 - 2 hours.

Following the visit you will receive a report from the Advisor which includes recommended actions around your home, as well as links to further information.

The visit includes

  • Energy efficiency advice.
  • Water efficiency advice.
  • Thermal comfort advice.
  • Waste reduction advice.
  • Basic solar advice.
  • Analysis of utility bills and potential opportunities for savings.
  • A follow-up report listing the best savings opportunities for your home with information on next steps.

The visit does not include

  • Architectural advice or assessment of building and DA plans.
  • Advice on suitability of your home for solar power or systems for purchase.
  • Advice on which are the best products to purchase.
  • Installation of energy or water efficient products.

Garden advice
