Home Living : May 19th 2009
2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, May 19, 2009 HOMELIVING Drawing the line Designing ways John Eussen Homewares and design specialist The past five years have seen a trend towards minimal design and decorating. This has led to an increase in the need for internalheatingand airconditioning due to windows without window treatments or, instead, blinds that offer little insulation . Timber floorboards or tiled floor surfaces should also be factored in. As well as a drain on energy, this also creates an imbalance in acoustic levels. There now is a trend to add softer features to the home, as well as accessorising with colour. Window coveringscan now be seen in a combination of blinds and curtains. There have also been innovations in pelmets and tracking systems that offer insulation. A 1C fall in temperature in the house can add up to 10 per cent to the averageheating bill. Conversely, an increase in temperature in summer adds significantly to the energy required for cooling. Proper window coverings such as fully- lined curtains can preserve up to 20 per cent of totalheat. Closely-fitted, lined curtains with a pelmet are an effective wayof protecting windows from heat loss at night, they also provide extraprotection in summer. Much of the heat gained or lost in the home is through windows and doors. The glass type, frame construction, window system and its airtightness all affect the home's performance.
