Home Living : April 24th 2012
MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, April 24, 2012 3 IT PAYS TO BE ENERGY WISE HOW SOLAR HELPS YOU SAVE MONEY ADVERTISING FEATURE MAKE HAY WHILE SUN SHINES Installing solar is still affordable thanks to the Solar Credit Rebate that Solarbright offers as a point-of-sale discount. But the rebate is set to drop by 33 per cent from July 1. The solar system must be installed by end of June this year to take advantage of the rebates. Details: Call 9607 2440, visit Solarbright's showroom at 1/7 Enterprise Circuit, Prestons or go to solarbright.com.au THE yearly household power bill is esti- mated to average about $2000 within two years. And the Australian Industry Group predicts energy prices will double by 2015. WITH this in mind, Solarbright says every household must look at renewable energy products such as the following: Skylights: Solarbright skylights have earned the Energy Star rating with a 15-year warranty against defects and reflect natural sunlight into your home. Roof Breeze: This compact solar- powered roof vent quietly and efficiently improves roof air circulation. Solar Hot Water: Edwards Solar Water Heaters use up to 50-90 per cent less energy than electric water heaters. Solar Electricity: Electricity from your solar power system powers your home via a NETT meter, before excess is ex- ported. PAINTING BRUSH UP ON YOUR COLOUR SCHEME PAINTING remains the simplest way to instantly add value to your property. Inspirations Paint & Colour said a good- quality paint job is a wise and affordable investment. The company's research shows painting the average single-storey, three-bedroom home yourself, both inside and out, will cost about $1600. The rooms painted most often are bedrooms followed by bathrooms and living areas. When changing a colour scheme, keep in mind that the kitchen and bathroom are the top two rooms to keep neutral as they consist of mostly fixed materials that are expensive to replace. Focus on light neutrals or whites and update the look with colourful acces- sories. If you want to put a stimulating colour in a bedroom, place it behind the bed so it doesn't affect you when you are trying to sleep, particularly in children's rooms. Children's rooms are no longer simply blue for boys and pink for girls. Embrace a not-so-predictable shade, such as a playful orange tone or lime green. Berry colours such as fuchsia, purple and indigo are also favourites this year.
