Home Energy Saving Kit

Westmeath Libraries is delighted to launch a new Home Energy Saving Kit service, which is promoted in partnership with the Westmeath County Council Climate Action Group, Westmeath Libraries and Codema.

The kit can be borrowed for a period of 3 weeks and will help you take the first step in becoming more energy efficient by identifying problem areas in your home and helping you make sense of the energy you consume on a daily basis.

Home Energy Savings Kits will help housholders better understand their energy use and reduce their bills. They include: a fridge/freezer thermometer, a temperature and humidity meter, a radiator key, a thermal leak detector, a plug-in energy monitor and a worksheet to help use these tools.

Instructional videos are available to view at https://www.codema.ie/think-energy-home-hub/instructional-videos-for-home-energy-saving-kit/

The kit is available to borrow free of charge from Mullingar Library and Athlone Library. In addition, the energy kit is accompanied by a useful booklet with simple tips on saving energy and a Home Energy Kit Survey.

Follow the practical exercises using the tools in the kit and think energy!
