Home Living : December 16th 2008
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, December 16, 2008 Go with the flow The system eliminates all gutter problems as it keeps leaves out » ADVERTISING FEATURE With 22 per cent off the price tag for the purchase and installation of Easy Flow Guttering there has never been a better time to buy the system that will eliminate debris problems and get the water in your guttering flowing again. The discount applies to all orders made by December 22 for installation in 2009. When you notice mildew on the fascia and eaves of the house it is a sure sign that leaves are blocking the flow of water in the gutters and the remedy is the Easy Flow Guttering concept. Inventor Paul Axford (pictured) says with his system there is no need to clean out the gutter and mildew will disappear. ''The system eliminates all gutter problems as it has proven to keep leaves out of the guttering,'' he said. PVC guttering is installed using brackets to ensure smooth flow of water. The water never overflows even in a deluge. Qualified tradesmen can install the system on an average house in about three days. It comes with a 25-year rustproof warranty as well as a 10-year warranty on workmanship. Details: Easy Flow Guttering Unit 30, 122, Hassall St, Wetherill Park call 8788 5555 www.easyflow.com.au. HOMELIVING .................................................. » ADVERTISING FEATURE Make small work An expanding family is seeking advice on turning a small utility room into a bedroom for a 20-something daughter who has moved back home, HIA NSW executive director Graham Wolfe says. ''Since she left, her twin brothers, who used to share, now have bedrooms of their own,'' he said. ''The mother told us she has a room the size of a shoebox that she used for an ironing room and a place to store junk and this is the only space available.'' Mr Wolfe says the first thing to do is clear the room of all the furniture and junk. Then work to a plan. Furniture in a small bedroom should be kept to a minimum. Bedside units can take up a lot of space and if you can get away with only one, so much the better. Mirrors above the bed will draw the eye up, away from the confines of the floor plan, and will reflect light, better still if that includes the view from a window. The headboard should be as light and unobtrusive as possible. Find an HIA professional at www.tradebuild.com.au *All prices are subject to a deposit. All prices include installation.

Homeowners can make light wo amount of food waste sent to lan an efficient, economical, environ leftovers. Research conducted this year by Australian homeowners use the right thing when disposing of fo and knowledge prevented them The research revealed a small proportion of consumers use home composting systems, and while this can have benefits it's an impractical option for many. Food Waste Disposal units create a cleaner kitchen and are safe to the environment, using little water and power: • FWD units are not water guzzlers using less than six litres of water per day, (equivalent to a single toilet flush or 0.1 washes of a 4.5 star machine); • a four minute shower uses as much water as a FWD unit would in 11 days; • the daily power consumption of a FWD unit is equivalent to using a 60W light globe for 9.7 minutes - or an LCD TV for three minutes; • FWD units are proven to not overload or place undue pressure on sewage systems. FWD units like InSinkErator, work by grinding food scraps into small particles and safely flushing them into the existing waste water system. InSinkErators can cope with a variety of food scraps including small bones, onion skins and fruit peel. Research was conducted by research agency Pure Profile in September 2008: 56% of surveyed respondents said they used their recycling bins weekly but wanted to do more 23.11% of respondents always tried to do the right thing when disposing of leftovers 20.12% of surveyed respondents used home composting systems. InSinkErators last for years and can have up to a five year in-home warranty, need little maintenance, fit neatly under the sink and come in a range of styles to suit any home, apartment and budget. InSinkErator FWD units are endorsed by The National Plumbing Associations Alliance (NPAA), who support the role InSinkErator waste disposal systems play in fostering sustainable plumbing practices in reducing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions.
