HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 21, 2008 9 ............................................... Hey, that's cool! » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING With warmer days expected keeping the home cool will be a priority. A new split inverter range from LG Electronics also marks the launch of airconditioners which feature an unrestricted airflow which helps make the indoor units much quieter in sleep mode, perfect for those looking for a comfortable, quiet night's sleep without the interruption of a loud airconditioner. LG Electronics category manager Irena Stojceska says that consumers are looking for appliances that will enhance their lives. ''People want products that work well and look good, especially when it comes to airconditioners,'' she said. ''People are looking for units that provide controlled temperatures all year round, so that they can enjoy the comfort of their own home. ''The new range includes models which feature an unrestricted air flow which helps lower the noise of the indoor unit. ''All models also feature durable anti- corrosive coating, plasma air purifying system and auto clean.'' Details: Visit www.lge.com.au or call 1800 544 375. Masonry at risk in dry spells Leaning brick walls and brick pillars need to be thoroughly inspected as Archicentre, the building advisory service of the Australian Institute of Architects issued a red alert on these. With climate change and the drought there are an increasing number of brick fences, especially in metropolitan areas, where changing soil conditions can affect the stability of structures. Their stability can be affected by any number of incidents such as a nudge with a car, deterioration of cement or moving foundations. State manager Angus Kell says Archicentre urges anyone with a leaning wall or brick pillar to take immediate action if they feel it is unsafe and at least have it checked by a professional to ascertain its condition,'' he said. ''The collapsing of bricks on to children has also been an issue when parents attach basketball rings over the garage door on to single brick walls which has sadly resulted in several deaths when children have swung on the rings collapsing the wall.'' Following a national awareness campaign by Archicentre all basketball rings now carry safety instructions on fitting. Archicentre urges people to report leaning walls or other dangerous structures to their local council to limit the risk of injury.
