Home Living : October 20th 2009
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, October 20, 2009 7 ................................................ Save with insulation » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING No one debates the fact that insulating your house (when done correctly) is quick, easy, and significantly reduces energy costs and carbon emissions, says Mark Group managing director Rob Grant. ''Insulation also keeps the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer -- and the best thing is that, with the federal government rebate, the average householder can insulate their home at little or no cost,'' he said. ''No one knows exactly what form the new carbon pollution reduction scheme will take and its exact effects on homes and businesses. ''What is certain is that energy costs will continue to go up. So with power costs rising and a sizeable rebate available to offset the costs, the question isn't: 'should I get my home insulated?' . . . it's: 'how do I make sure it's done correctly?','' Mr Grant said. The Federal Government Insulation Rebate Scheme has created jobs and encouraged new companies to enter the market. One such newcomer is the Mark Group, a new company in Australia which has brought its big ambitions and big reputation from its native UK. Mark Group has been insulating homes for more than 34 years and doesn't just confine its expertise to insulation. It also looks at whole- house energy-efficiency savings such as solar energy, hot water and wind turbines. The key to Mark Group's success in the UK has been top quality, professional installation at low cost. It doesn't outsource any of its work. The whole process is carried out by its own skilled installation experts so it can ensure rigorous standards for quality are met. Its installers are all trained at Mark Group's training academy, which teaches the methods that saw Mark Group become one of the UK's biggest home energy-efficiency installers, with more than 6000 homes made more energy-efficient every week. Mark Group has also managed to avoid the problems some smaller operators are having with supply. It has a plentiful store of products which comply with all Australian Standards and the Building Code of Australia and can insulate homes with little waiting time. To get your home insulated to the highest quality at low cost call 1800 656 530. Ease the daily grind WITH their revolutionary design and fun form, these rabbit-shaped mills are a great kitchen tool idea. The new G'rabbit pepper and salt grinders are from Chef'n, the company that supplies kitchen gadgets. The ergonomically-friendly shape is for easy, single-handed action. Simply squeeze the bunny ears together to activate a carbon steel rasp mechanism within which grinds and releases fresh pepper or salt. The coarseness can be adjusted with a small level at the base. The black G'rabbit is pre-filled with a peppercorn medley and the white G'rabbit contains Spanish sea salt. They are easily refilled via the lift-off tail. Chef'n G'rabbit, in black or white, is available at David Jones, Myer, Peter's of Kensington and homeware stores at $59.95 each. 2119292k wk16 5 star service Quality products Expert installation Modern designs Fully insured & licensed 50 years experience Skillion , Gable Combo Dome Patio cover Timber decking Call Today!
