Home Living : October 5th 2010
4 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, October 5, 2010 Prepare for success » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Summer is hanging in the air and as the weather changes, we are all looking forward to having more fun in the sun. Now is perfect to ensure your home and outside areas are safe, comfortable and ready for entertainment. Insects and lawn Reduce insects and pests by mowing your lawn. If you have mosquitos, use a bug spray or citronella candles or tiki torches with citronella oil. Remove all rocks, branches, sticky weeds and dog waste to keep kids safe. Outdoor furniture Wipe down to remove bird droppings and dust. If treating wood with stain or oil, allow time to dry. Umbrellas and awnings Read the label before doing any washing or using chemical cleaners. Put back on the frame and put it out to dry. Grilling and cleaning Grilling is one of the rites of summer that everyone looks forward to. Firing up the BBQ and tossing on the steaks, franks or tasty favourites is exciting and convivial. But beforehand, ensure the barbie is thoroughly clean. Each type of grill has its own type of cleaning ritual but the common maintenance for each is pretty much the same. You can use soapy steel wool pads, a wire grill brush, dishwashing detergent, spray-on cleaners to loosen residues, and even baking soda. Removable racks can be taken out and washed with soap and water. Once your grill is clean, spray a light layer of cooking oil on the grate to prevent the grill from rusting. Gardening And to have a great first impression on your guests, make sure your gardens are in shape. Add few new summer blooms for colour and character. Do the light fantastic We've heard it all before -- rising cost of living, paying more for energy, and that carbon footprint. But we are still not doing enough to lessen our carbon footprint and, as a result, forking out for higher energy bills. But there is good news. Solatube has created a system that utilises daylight to light interior spaces, and no, it's not an inefficient skylight. Quickly installed, Solatube's system uses no electricity for operation and negates the need for artificial lighting during the day, thus significantly reducing energy costs and environmental impact. And if you consider that 10 per cent of a family home's energy bill is just for lighting, the consumption benefits of Solatube are outstanding. The system is called a Solatube tubular daylighting device and, by installing just one 160 model, you can expect to save about 8 kg of carbon emissions annually. In addition to saving on energy costs and reducing environmental impact, Solatube's tubular daylighting devices block out UVB and UVC radiation, and more than 95 per cent of UVA rays, so your family and treasured household items are protected. So how does it work? A rooftop dome captures daylight from pre-dawn to post-dusk and it then travels down patented reflective tubing in the roof. A diffuser sits flush with the ceiling inside and reflected daylight shines through the diffuser into the room below. The exterior dome is unobtrusive and interior fixtures look just like an artificial light fixture, with a variety of styles to suit your lighting preferences and decor. So combat ever-increasing energy costs and protect your family from harsh UV rays -- and do your bit for the environment.
