When the Multicultural Services Centre of WA conducted an energy audit, air conditioning showed up as a large cost for the community services organisation. Numerous savings have been made since implementing recommendations like: adjusting thermostats to 22 degrees Celsius in winter, and 20 degrees Celsius in summer; regular leaning of vents, ducts and skylights; task specific cooling via ceiling fans or portable fans; replacing florescent lighting with LEDs.
