Renters’ Home Energy Assessments

Assessor helping renter to become more energy efficient

Are you renting your home? Do you want to reduce your energy costs?

Actsmart is now offering rental households in the ACT a free 60-minute home energy assessment.

The ACT Government has engaged the Australian Energy Foundation to deliver these assessments. If you are unable to book online or have any questions about your booking, please call 1300 23 68 55.

This is an opportunity to

  • identify the quickest, cheapest and most effective ways to reduce your energy bills and use;
  • improve the comfort of your home;
  • get answers to your questions about your home and appliances;
  • get a written report on your home and how to reduce your energy costs.

An independent, expert energy assessor can provide your assessment:

  • via phone call (available now), referring to photos or video if available;
  • in your home (from October or November, subject to COVID safety requirements); or
  • online (available from November).
Who is eligible to access this offer?

You’re eligible, if you:

  • Are a resident within the ACT, and
  • Are renting the home you are currently living in.*

*If you are an owner-occupier or rental property owner, advice and assessments tailored for property owners are available through the
Sustainable Home Advice Program.

If you are a pensioner or concession card holder, you may be eligible for a home energy assessment that includes additional services,
through the Actsmart Low Income Household Program.
