Interested in learning more about insulation? How it would work in your home and what options are available?

Join sustainable buildings expert Tony Isaacs in a free online seminar at 2pm on April 23 held by the Alternative Technology Association and bankmecu.

One of the best ways to save money on energy bills is to insulate your home. Insulation is like a barrier, preventing heat passing in and out of the house. By reducing heat flow you can maintain a comfortable temperature inside, regardless of the temperature outside.

Tony Isaacs is a qualified architect specialising in energy efficient buildings, and has lectured on thermal performance. Tony worked for the Sustainable Energy Authority of Victoria (the predecessor to Sustainability Victoria), during which time he was instrumental in the development of FirstRate energy rating software.

Learn about the importance of site orientation, location and climate in designing an energy efficient, sustainable home at a free webinar on Friday June 15 from 11am-noon.

This will be the fifth webinar in a series held by the Alternative Technology Association in conjunction with bankmecu.

We will be looking at sustainable design elements incorporated in an owner-built home on Sydney’s northern beaches, looking in particular at how the site’s location and challenges (including slope, proximity to the sea, and limited solar access) influenced the design.

The webinar will include a presentation by designer Dick Clarke of Envirotecture and a conversation with homeowners Barbara Stack and Rodney Reece on their design priorities and what it’s like to live in the finished house. The webinar will finish with a Q&A session.

If you’re not able to join in live, view it at the ATA website from a couple of days afterwards.
