Heating and cooling normally account for the lion's share of energy use in your home - particularly if the house hasn't been designed with efficient climate control in mind from the outset. A bit of thought and some careful planning can make a vast difference to your bills and environmental footprint - particularly over the longer term.
The climate control checklists below cover the issues you need to consider to ensure your heating, cooling and ventilation systems are providing you with the most effective and efficient climate control. The checklists will save you time, hassle and money. Print them out and take them with you when you visit a climate control specialist, builder, architect or building designer.
