SEE-Change is holding a contest to find the coldest house in Canberra, and plan to then fix the place up for the lucky winners.
My last share-house would have won this easily, then gone on to win the ‘mouldiest’, ‘least secure’, and ‘most full of millipedes all the time’ competitions too.
Ahh I miss that old place…
“We are a local ACT company and over the years we have seen homes where it is colder indoors than outdoors; homes where people have to get dressed in bed under the doona before they can get up and start the day; and homes where people are wearing multiple jumpers in order to simply sit in their living room and watch television,” Alexander Watson Chief Executive, Jeremy Watson said.
“It is dreadful to think there are people toughing it out in a freezing cold house when we know that some simple improvements to energy efficiency can increase the inside temperature by up to 15 degrees.
“So we have decided to go on the hunt for Canberra’s coldest home and give the winning house a complete overhaul to make it toasty warm. This could be worth up to $20,000.”
To enter the Coldest House in Canberra Competition people simply need to log on to the coldesthouseincanberra.com page and fill in an entry form. The first 300 entrants will receive a free home energy assessment with thermal imaging (normally valued at $99).
