Home Living : April 27th 2010
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, April 27, 2010 1 Be cool in full brick » ADVERTISING FEATURE Over the next three years electricity prices are expected to rise for NSW householders by a staggering 64 per cent -- the biggest increases ever seen. So it makes even more sense now to consider energy- efficiency when building your new home. Lengthy research conducted by the University of Newcastle has conclusively shown that full-brick walls even out extreme temperature fluctuations better than any other building material on the market, making it easy to slash energy bills. Lillian and Alf Tornatore have experienced first-hand the many benefits of full-brick construction. Their old home was full brick and now they have replaced it with a new full-brick house constructed by Rawson Homes. ''We chose the traditional brick look to suit the area we are living in. But we have found so many more benefits we had not thought about before,'' Mrs Tornatore says. ''The house is great in summer. There is a noticeable difference in temperature when you come in the front door, which we expected. It's so much cooler inside. We expect to save a lot of money now as we rarely turn on the airconditioner, except in the extreme heat." Austral Bricks NSW marketing manager Natalie Frendo explained why this is so. ''The thermal mass of bricks naturally irons out temperature variations to a range more consistent with the ideal family comfort zone, as the Tornatore family have discovered,'' he said. ''Bricks keep your house cooler in summer and warmer in winter, and can save you a fortune in heating and cooling bills over the lifetime of your home.'' Full-brick has become the gold standard for sustainable living and enhanced quality of life. There is a trend back to full-brick homes as people discover the many benefits these homes offer and realise that homes of the future need to be more sustainable.
