2 Notes to presenter Please refer to the guide for additional information. Some information will need updating, such as grants available, which change fairly regularly. Some information needs to be added, such as litres per person per day and waste per person in your area. Refer to the notes, which offer advise on where to source this information. We also suggest that if the audit form is going to be used to arrange further assistance for specific items e.g. maintenance staff to install retrofits, or showerheads to be arranged through the water retailers, that you add a slide about this just before the energy solutions slide. Due to copyright limitations many of the great photos that could be used to illustrate points cannot be included in this presentation. However, you might have access to suitable photos and we encourage you to include these into your presentations. A photo that illustrates a point is better than lots of words. Where we lack a suitable photo we have simply added a few words to illustrate the point, or to be a place holder for your photo or diagram. You will also note that we have tried to keep each slide to a separate topic. Bullet point lists such as this slide are boring and contain far to much information for a presentation. If you develop a slide like this one then the temptation is to read it word for word and the audience will have done that in the time you have said your first sentence and will know what your going to say for the rest of it Participants want to hear what you have to say not read lots off stuff off a slide. A handout is a better way to give detailed information. The information booklet and audit sheet form the handouts for this presentation. Delete this slide before giving your presentation! Good luck and have fun. If your having fun, then the participants are more likely too as well.

28 Home Audit Worksheet Date: ________ Client Name: _______________________Client Phone No: _____________ Client Address: ________________________________________________________ Community Care Worker Name: __________________ Phone No: ______________ This worksheet is for community care workers, to use in the homes of their clients. It helps carers identify where and how energy and water are used and waste is produced in different parts of the home. The Audit outlines simple actions and home improvements to help clients live more comfortably, reduce energy and water use, save money on bills, and help the natural environment. Explanations of the recommendations in this document can be found in the Home Audit Information Booklet for Community Care Workers. The numbered sections correspond in the two documents for ease of reference. Each section covers a different part of the home where resources are used, e.g. In the Kitchen or Heating and Cooling. The majority of the suggested solutions or actions are no-cost or low-cost for the client. Larger possible retrofits or new appliances are in some cases listed in the Audit, for discussion when you think appropriate. There are also a number of selected home retrofits which are entirely free for the client, and which you can order for them on the Retrofit Job Order Form.

29 4How Water QuestionSuggested Solution or Action 4.1Is the hot water system set at a higher temperature than it needs to be? Yes No – no action required Set the hot water service to 60°C if its a storage hot water service (a large tank), or to 50°C or less if it is an instantaneous system (a small box on the wall). Note: use thermometer to measure water temp at tap – should be no higher than 55°C.
