Home Living : July 5th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 5, 2011 1 HOMELIVING INSIDE IDEAL IDEAS Smart energy buys ENERGY WISE Keep the heat in and save GREEN INTENTIONS Why consumers fail to buy SOLAR REBATES Make the most of them JANITA SINGH Finding power to go green People are making a real effort to reduce energy use at home but, as the Living Greener website points out, the energy used by households in Australia is increasing along with the number of large homes being built. An initative from the Australian government's Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, the website provides a starting point for consumers, providing information about living more sustainably and reducing their environmental impact. We can make considerable energy savings by living in well-designed homes with energy- efficient appliances and features. Did you know? Up to 10 per cent of electricity used in homes is consumed by gadgets plugged in but not in use, such as the television A large-screen TV used six hours a day can generate around half a tonne of greenhouse gases a year -- more than a family fridge Switching to energy-efficient lighting could halve household lighting costs Washing clothes in cold water can reduce greenhouse gas emissions Gas hot water heaters produce only 25 to 33 per cent of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by electric hot water heaters Details: www.livinggreener.gov.au PERGOLAS DECKS OPENING ROOFS CARPORTS 1300 361 390 Visit our Showroom 361 Pennant Hills Road, Pennant Hills NSW 2120 www.pergolaland.com.au Call Us to arrange a booking with one of our experienced Design Consultants 1 The Trusted Outdoor Additions Specialist KITCHEN HALF YEAR CLEARANCE *For kitchens with cabinetry valued over $8,500 (ex glass splashbacks, stone benchtops & trade works). 10% deposit required at time of appointment.
