Home Living : May 11th 2010
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, May 11, 2010 1 Control the light and heat » ADVERTISING FEATURE More than any other feature, windows set the tone of your home by providing views, ventilation, daylight and a sense of space. They also have a critical role in your home's comfort and energy consumption. Central heating and airconditioning make a home more comfortable but use energy, cost money and create greenhouse gases. Glass is the only building material that not only insulates us from temperature extremes but can also control the passage of light and heat into and out of our homes. Installing energy-efficient glass for windows is a new trend. In winter we endure extra energy costs for heating. So there is no better time to start thinking about improving our homes' energy- efficiency. Ordinary windows are an energy leak. A typical, adequately insulated building that uses ordinary glass can lose as much as 49 per cent of heat through the windows in winter. Energy-efficient windows can create a healthier, more comfortable, light-filled and secure home, as well as help reduce energy consumption. Greater energy-efficiency lets you have larger window areas as well, maximising views and natural light and giving you perfect indoor-outdoor living. You can also combine energy-efficient glass with windows that reduce noise as well as the need for cleaning, and provide protection from intruders. To maximise your home's potential and to decide your specific glazing needs, visit Viridian's recently launched seebeyondwindows.com ''Seebeyondwindows.com shows the consumer that the great virtue of the high-performance windows and glass available today is that it provides a tangibly more comfortable and liveable home," said Viridian general manager of marketing Lachlan Austin. ''Simply by identifying key issues at the early design stage, attractive glass products can be selected to best meet the needs of the home. ''The right choices made up-front can deliver lifelong energy-efficient performance and permit considerable savings over the life of the dwelling," Mr Austin said. Viridian is the glass manufacturing and processing business of CSR Ltd. It is a progressive and innovative market leader in Australasia, whose focus is on improving the sustainability of Australia's built environment. What to consider: Summer. Simple toned glass can absorb much of the solar energy striking its surface, the glass itself can get hot and this heat will be re- radiated into your home, making it harder to cool. Winter. Double glazing works by introducing a second layer of glass to create a static air gap and transparent insulating barrier. It also keeps the inner pane of glass closer to room temperature.
