“Creating your effective family home requires that a consistent overall approach is applied, for that reason we have developed some check points which you can download from our website,” said Mr Jovanovic said.

“It is by making each item on the list work in concert with all others which achieves comfort, health, quality of life and reduced bills. The 'check list' permits you to identify the areas of interest you wish the seminar to focus on.

“Look up your own utility accounts before the seminar, as your personal reference point to the evening about water and energy use,” Mr Jovanovic said.
