2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, October 19, 2010 Ten ways to save » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING This Spring, think sustainability. To get the idea started, September 12 was celebrated as Sustainable House Day and to mark the occasion, the Association of Building Sustainability Assessors (ABSA) has 10 simple tips. ABSA CEO Alison Carmichael said the day gave people the chance to get a real-life look inside houses designed, built or fitted out with sustainability in mind, and to exchange ideas. ''ABSA's members are accredited assessors and can visit homes and calculate the building's energy and water use, and provide advice on how to improve environmental performance,'' Ms Carmichael said. The Home Sustainability Assessment Scheme (HSAS) was set up as part of the federal government's Green Loans program. While loans are no longer available, free assessments are.
