This online engineering PDH course provides tips and information on how to save energy and money in your home through simple and achievable changes.
In the face of our current global sustainability challenges, it is our duty as a society to make individual changes to our personal lives to reduce our impact wherever possible. These changes should start within our homes, and contrary to what the majority may believe, we actually have the ability to save money and energy in our own home.
