We're joining more than 280 of Melbourne's leading suppliers at the HIA Melbourne Home Show this weekend so bring your plans and talk to us about how double glazing can make your home more energy efficient summer and winter.
Up until a few weeks ago I was a blogging virgin. Now I can’t even seem to take a long weekend off without jotting down some notes, or should I say frustrations, as I constantly read about issues regarding energy in the newspaper. From summer blackouts here in Australia to the soaring cost of utility bills, it’s seems to be a constant narrative.
Alan Hume first learned the benefits of double glazing in London in the early 90s. In 2006 he moved to Australia permanently and wanted to enjoy the same comfort in his Melbourne penthouse. Having been told that secondary glazing was as effective as uPVC double glazing, he tried a quick fix. A disappointing result lead him to Ecostar and he hasn’t looked back…
Why is it that so many home owners don’t include double glazing in their eco-friendly renovation plans? In his second blog, our MD Craig Johnson explains why you should never settle for second best when it comes to windows and doors.
Sometimes it’s in the darkest moments, you have the brightest ideas. For me that was quite literally the experience when I found myself at home, in Prahran, trying to find candles and lamps to illuminate the kitchen (in the middle of cooking a late dinner) after yet another energy black out on a stifling hot Melbourne day.
