Home Living : May 12th 2009
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 12, 2009 Safer downlights » ADVERTISING FEATURE Ceiling insulation can be rendered ineffective when a gap is allowed around downlights. Thermal expert James M. Fricker says this is because contractors typically allow a gap of 500sq mm around each downlight, which is allowed under the current Australian Standard. ''With this option applied, the efficiency of ceiling insulation could be reduced by almost 70 per cent,'' he said. ''This inefficiency will translate to high energy costs as coolers and heaters work overtime to compensate.'' Homeowners can drastically increase the efficiency of their new insulation if their contractor installs sealed downlight enclosures. Arrowform's Isolite Guard meets the requirement of the Australian Standard and allows the enclosed downlight to abut the insulation and any timber beams. Mr Fricker says as well as ensuring the ceiling achieves close to 100 per cent energy efficiency, Isolite Guards are specifically designed to prevent ceiling fires. ''These fires can be caused by halogen downlights, which produce temperatures of up to 300C and can ignite timber and other materials including the dust and debris that typically collects in the ceiling cavity.'' Retailing for $15 each, these Australian- made Isolite guards are available from lighting and hardware outlets. » ADVERTISING FEATURE Drying made easy This winter get the most out of your floor ducted heating or apartment balcony with a vent tent. A vent tent is a clothes airer cover that fits over a standard 12-rail airer and when placed over a heating duct clothes dry quickly. Washing dries up to five times faster when using vent tent with ducted heating as compared with laundry drying without the vent tent. Made from breathable fabric, the vent tent also features a front flap to allow easy access to washing. The vent tent retails for $9.98 and is available at Bunnings Warehouse.
