My Efficient Electric Home Handbook

My Efficient Electric Home Handbook with Tim Forcey, presented by the Australia Institute

Tim Forcey’s My Efficient Electric Home Handbook is the Australia’s Biggest Book Club book for July.

My Efficient Electric Home Handbook is an essential first-of-its kind resource for homeowners and renters. It provides tips and strategies on how to convert your home into an efficient, healthy and comfortable space suitable for our all-electric future.

Sharing insights from working with thousands of Australians in their homes, as well as from hands-on experience modifying his own home, Tim Forcey explains best-practice heating and cooling, hot water heat pumps, induction cooktops, draught-proofing, insulation, solar energy and much more.

Australia’s Biggest Book Club is brought to you by the Australia Institute.


“The genius of this book is combining the big story that our leaders need to end new fossil fuel development to protect our climate, with a practical guide for homeowners to make their homes more efficient, electrify to get off gas, and save thousands of dollars a year in their energy bills!” – Dr Richard Denniss, executive director The Australia Institute

“Tim has pioneered a way and now generously gives us his guidebook which will save us time and money and bring us to his destination – the future – at a discount.” – Dr Saul Griffith, co-founder Rewiring Australia

“At the national level, there may have been the wasted years of the climate wars; at the household level, it’s a different story, and Tim Forcey is shining a (clean, green) light on how we can all act local and think global.” – Zoe Daniel, Independent Member for Goldstein
