Home Energy Audit Kits


Did you know that you can measure your household’s carbon footprint with a City of Swan Home Energy Audit Kit?

Each kit includes:

  • a Power-Mate energy meter
  • a CD containing an Excel spreadsheet to add your Power-Mate data
  • an infrared thermometer
  • a stopwatch
  • a compass
  • and instructions to help you assess your home.

They were distributed through the Australian Government’s Solar Cities Program and encourage people to use energy more efficiently and in doing so, reduce the City’s carbon footprint and your household costs.

You’ll be able to calculate how much greenhouse gas your washing machines, fridges, dishwashers, dryers and other appliances are emitting, and how much money each is costing per hour, day, month or year.

Home Energy Audit Kits are available for loan from Midland, Ellenbrook and Beechboro libraries. The kits are also available for reservation and loan from any of our library branches.

Please note: The Home Energy Audit Kits contain valuable and sensitive equipment. Please be aware that you may incur a fee of up to $500 (GST incl) if the item is not returned in the condition in which it was loaned.
