HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 2, 2010 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE KEEP COOL It doesn't cost a fortune ENERGY TIPS Simple ways to save INSULATE WISE Install powerful savings BLACK IS BACK Kitchens change looks Energy savings Janita Singh Energy savings Something as simple as opening your windows can save you hundreds of dollars when the thermostat goes up. As Energy Australia suggests, a four- person household can cut up to 10 per cent off their electricity bill and up to one tonne of CO2 from household emissions, by planning and using appliances efficiently. There are various ways to keep a home cool. Take advantage of natural breezes by leaving doors and windows on opposite sides of your home open to make the most of cross ventilation. Keep the sun and its heat off your house by using external blinds, trees, vines and pergolas over windows to keep the temperature down inside. Use a programmable thermostat with your airconditioner to adjust the setting at night or when no one is home. Plug home electronics, such as TVs and VCRs, into power strips, and turn the strips off when equipment is not in use. • Alterations & additions • New homes • Granny flats • Contact Paul Chapman Mob 0404 379 550 Ph 9481 7319 firstname.lastname@example.org "We build on time & on budget" • Visit our website www.plumprojects.net.au Builders licence number - 146477C ABN 69 101 180 750 2236424K HL wk19 www.niceinteriors.com.au Main Showroom Narrabeen 1324 Pittwater Rd Home Hub Centre -- Castle Hill Cnr Hudson & Victoria Ave STOCK CLEARANCE 10%-20% OFF Quality lounges.
