New edition of ‘Your Home’ book

The 6th print edition of Your Home - Australia’s guide to sustainable homes - is now available in both softcover and hardcover.

The Hon Angus Taylor MP, Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction, announced the new edition today. ‘Your Home is yet another initiative we are driving to ensure families and individuals can power their household for less,’ the Minister said.

Your Home has undergone major technical and editorial updates. The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources coordinated a team of building experts, scientific editors and graphic designers to update both the Your Home book and website.

The 71-chapter print edition contains new and updated content on:

  • building in bushfire-prone areas
  • passive house standards
  • renewable energy systems and batteries
  • condensation and airtightness
  • energy-efficiency in apartments and common-area upgrades
  • making homes resilient to a changing climate

The Your Home book includes 4 case studies, with additional case studies available online.
