Low E Glass

Low emission (low e or low thermal emission) refers to a surface condition that emits low levels of radiant thermal (heat) energy. All materials absorb, reflect and emit radiant energy, but here, the primary concern is a special wavelength interval of radiant energy, namely thermal radiation of materials with temperatures approximately between 40 to 60 degrees Celsius.

The Viridian

Solar Control with Low E range provides excellent solar control with higher insulation than standard glass. They are a combination of solar control glass and coatings with the option of additional solar control inter-layer's. This glass range is designed for applications where high daylight transmission is required without reflectivity plus moderate to high solar control and insulation to reduce heat loss. Recognised as simple and effective way to balance design objectives with Energy Code requirements.

Government Rebates

Environmental building rebates are currently available from the federal government to make new and existing homes more energy efficient. State governments and local utility providers also offer a range of rebates for energy and water efficiency. These rebates change over time and are aimed at promoting the installation of rainwater tanks or water efficient appliances for existing homes or installing higher rated hot water systems.In some cases, homes may be eligible for both a federal and a state rebate.

No home is complete without the right kitchen, needless to say it is the heart of your home. When designing your kitchen don't make the mistake of letting someone tell you what you do and don't need. It is important that you compare what you already have. Firstly map out in meters what you have and expand or decrease the size to what space you will need.

Secondly make a list of the appliances that you will want, there is no need having two ovens if you know you are not going to use them, maybe you would like one larger oven instead? Don't get caught up making your kitchen looking like a commercial showroom, unless that is something you like. Stream lined kitchens where most of your appliances are under bench or at face level but facing away from the front view are always the easiest to style and maintain. Bench tops need to be durable and reflect the quality of your home, when you have engaged, and committed to a luxury build you don't want to compromise the appearance of the central and most important part of your home! Sinks and tap ware are highly visible and need to reflect the design story you have chosen. I have seen many high end kitchens with inappropriate tap ware and the overall impact is lost instantly.

Lastly, spend your money where it is vital and make your savings elsewhere. Butlers pantries that include a wet area and additional bench space are an added value to your home, not only if you enjoy entertaining but if you intend to re-sell! So many things to think about.
