Sustainability and the Old Australian /Marsh, Andrew /Paper/0646554471/S021-D
Andrew D. Marsh
Old Architecture + Modern Living = High Energy Wastage.
This equation resonates in many old houses around Australia. Energy and water costs are on the rise, and we are all eager to find ways to reduce bills. Most households can reduce energy consumption by at least 20% without any significant lifestyle change. The savings are often right under our noses, we just need to recognise them and act.
People who live in old houses often have to choose: either to live sustainably or to live comfortably - achieving both of these can be a challenge.
This handbook takes up the challenge. It contains dozens of tips and retrofit techniques ranging from simple habit changes, to advice on the energy conservation aspects of a major renovation.
Sustainability and the Old Australian House is an essential resource for those trying to cut energy and water consumption houses of 40 years and older.
