HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, July 12, 2011 3 HOMELIVING Smart glass cut above Energy-efficient windows can create a more comfortable, light-filled and secure property and cut bills. Windows play a huge part in the energy efficiency of your home. Careful consideration of the size, type and placement of windows will ensure a more comfortable home while reducing the need to artificially heat and cool, saving on energy bills. A new trend in building and renovation is the installation of energy-efficient glass for windows. Ordinary windows are a site where energy leaks out of the home, but energy-efficient windows can create a more comfortable, light-filled and secure property while reducing energy consumption. Viridian SmartGlass is now launching in the residential market. The name comes from the smart low emissivity (low-e) active insulation layer fused to the glass and designed specifically for Australia's demanding climate. Emissivity is the ability of a surface to emit energy by radiation, meaning glass with low emissivity radiates less energy. ''Viridian SmartGlass provides a straightforward way to make good glass choices in different climate zones and to achieve higher energy ratings without sacrificing natural light and aspect,'' Viridian general marketing manager Lachlan Austin said. Details: www.smartglass.com.au Reflect on these tips TO get the best results from your windows consider the following: Achieving a thermally efficient house can be helped by orientating your house north where possible, and locating and choosing energy- efficient windows to let sunshine in on cold days and exclude it when its hot. Northerly facing sunrooms capture the best of the sunny aspect without the harshness of the afternoon heat and are especially valued in colder parts of Australia. Most bedrooms should get morning sun, so where possible choose rooms with a north- easterly aspect. The setting westerly sun is the most severe so using a low-e coated glass and toned darker glass can help block uncomfortable sun. Ventilation dramatically affects comfort. Position opening windows to maximise the benefit of the breeze. 40% 50% 60% OFF! ROLLER SHUTTERS "Don t Be Fooled!"
