HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 14, 2009 7 Real saw point HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE While many tools are interchangeable and indistinguishable from the next, the merits of a good hacksaw are definitely performance-based. Because it is required to comfortably saw through various types of metal -- including copper, aluminium and steel -- a durable, comfortable and effective hacksaw is a must for any serious tool kit. Bahco produces high-performance tools for the professional or DIYer and the attention to detail is evident in their range of ergonomic hacksaws. The 325 Ergo 300mm hacksaw has a professional frame that is ergonomically designed with high blade tension for straight, accurate and exact work. The centred blade promotes correct balance and it features a spring- tensioned blade-loading mechanism for quick blade changes. The 319 Hi-Viz 300mm hacksaw frame features a strong, yet light, steel frame that is covered with a protective dual component plastic. The comfortable, non-slip handle and front grip ensures a secure grip. The tension mechanism is actually integrated into the handle. Bahco products are available at selected Home Hardware, Mitre 10, Total Tools and other outlets. Details: Call 1300 728 177. Heat pumps offer green alternative » ADVERTISING FEATURE Traditionally, solar water heaters have proven themselves to be the best renewable water-heating alternatives to gas and electric systems. However, while solar is still the most energy-efficient way to heat water, heat pumps are, in many cases, a more practical solution, saving almost as much on energy and greenhouse gas emissions. The new Rheem MPi-325 heat pump is the product of choice for the average home. It is suited to all conditions and climates. The Rheem MPi-325 features a 325-litre tank, ensuring plenty of hot water is available when you need it. As it doesn't rely on sunlight to operate, you will have hot water day and night. Using up to 66 per cent less energy than most conventional electric water-heaters, the Rheem MPi-325 also helps reduce your carbon footprint by up to 3.6 tonnes of CO2 per year. Unique to the Rheem MPi-325 heat pump is the standard inclusion of a back-up element, designed to activate only during cold conditions. This feature ensures you always have 60˚C hot water in cold weather. The Rheem MPi-325 also boasts a five- year cylinder warranty, a three-year labour warranty on the cylinder, a two- year warranty on the sealed system and a one-year warranty on all parts. There is a current government rebate offer that could save you up to $4000 if you replace an electric storage hot- water system. When searching for the best way to heat water, opt for a modern, practical and green alternative. The Rheem MPi-325 heat pump retails for $3195.
