|What is a Home User Guide?
A Home User Guide explains to the occupier how to operate their home in an energy efficient manner and make the most of their local amenities. Topics covered in the report include water, recycling and waste, energy, emergency information, local amenities and more.
A Home User Guide can achieve 2 to 3 credits in Management (Man 1) in EcoHomes or the Code for Sustainable Homes. To gain 2 credits the report predominantly focuses on functions to do with the dwelling while the total 3 credits can be achieved if the information provided extends itself into the local area.
|"Home User Guides can be provided for each individual new property. They are also one of the most cost effective ways of gaining Code for Sustainable Homes credits."
