  • Energy Efficiency
    reduces heat flow through the glass Appropriate covering include drapes Holland blinds Roman blinds and Austrian blinds pelmets are recommended to be effective In cold winter areas consider double glazing for all windows Use of Insulation Insulation is the most effective way of improving a home s energy efficiency and can make your home more comfortable as it acts as a barrier to heat flow reducing the amount of warmth escaping in winter and reducing the amount of heat entering in summer In fact by correctly installing insulation in ceilings in walls and under floors you can effectively reduce heating costs by up to 50 and help to reduce green house gas emissions We are all familiar with the way insulation works In summer we keep our drinks cold by putting them in an insulated esky insulation in the lid walls and floor of the esky keeps the summer heat out and ice stays solid for longer In winter we drink hot tea or coffee from a thermos Again the insulated walls ensure a hot cuppa hours after the kettle was boiled In homes insulation installed in walls ceilings and floors acts the same way keeping heat out in summer and in during winter Esky and Thermos are registered trademarks of Nylex Limited and Thermos L L C respectively Ventilation and Draught Proofing When planning your home you should consider internal layouts of rooms doorways and windows to allow for good cross ventilation to cool your home in summer and reduce or eliminate the need for mechanical air conditioning Air leakage has a significant impact on thermal performance and allows hot dry and dusty air to enter you home This can be minimised by draught proofing or sealing and gaps around doors and windows with weather stripping The same can be said for gaps in the house construction such as along skirting s cornices and other internal lining joints However the more airtight you make your home the more important it become to have adequate ventilation so that you maintain air quality especially in kitchen and bathroom areas Building Materials Construction materials such as concrete and brick can absorb and hold large amounts of heat This heat is then released when the air becomes cooler They have a low R value because most of the heat from one side will travel to the other but it takes longer then lighter building materials In temperate climates tiled concrete floors and internal masonry cavity brick concrete block walls assist in moderating temperatures inside the home Carpeting a concrete floor will greatly reduce it s effectiveness in storing and releasing heat In hot humid climates heavy construction materials provide little additional benefit and can be a disadvantage if not completely protected from the sun Light weight construction such as brick veneer or timber fibre board clad construction may be a better option In areas of western Queensland and where there is a cool breeze at night a combination of heavy construction for day
