Nudists Beware: modern window films are invisible! It could be the best home improvement you never see – or one that tricks your clothing-averse neighbours into putting on a show you wish you hadn’t seen. Window film has been around forever, but it’s only quite recently that its popularity has skyrocketed. A thin, transparent polyester coating, window film can keep the sun’s UV rays from bleaching flooring and furnishings as well as provide dramatic insulating effects in both summer and winter. “Many of us associate window film with either a really dark, sleazy limousine tint or a super-reflective mirror finish,” says Dave Barlow, who’s been installing window film in the Comox Valley for more than 17 years. “Today’s window films represent a huge advancement in terms of keeping natural light in a home, but also in terms of eliminating the reflective appearance of exterior glass,” he explains. “There’s literally no way of knowing it’s there – until you see the effect it has on your energy bill.” Actually, he corrects himself, there is one way of telling whether the people around you have film on their windows – they no longer use their venetian blinds or drapes during daylight hours. Even on the brightest and hottest days, says Barlow, window film eliminates

C O N S T R U C T I O N

C O M M E R C I A L

heat, glare and UV rays so dramatically that blinds simply aren’t necessary. Many films also offer varying degrees of one-way visibility and privacy protection during daylight hours. It’s where the absence of blinds meets the misconception that window film still offers reflective privacy at night, however, that things can go horribly wrong. “We always remind folks that they’ll still require the use of blinds and venetians at night for privacy,” recounts Barlow. “ One elderly gentleman unfortunately must have had that advice slip his mind.” Barlow recalls one elderly gentleman, who was obviously proud of much more than his new window film, who would perform a stretch routine every evening – stark naked in the living room window. The neighbours eventually drew straws, with the loser earning the unenviable task of informing the gentleman that (impressed as they were) his window film did not provide privacy at night. Window film costs a fraction of what a conventional window covering would and has a 20-year life expectancy. Other applications, such as frosted, shatterproof security and earthquake films, are also available. Article supplied by Safe and Sound Window Film.

Mud room makeovers

No matter the season, your mud room is the hardest working room in your house. Whether it’s hats, gloves and boots…or cleats, shin guards and duffle bags, everyone in your family finds something to keep in the mud room. All those items can lead to clutter, so now is the time to try a few quick and easy DIY projects to add order to mud room mayhem.

Space to Hang Feel like you never have enough space to hang jackets or a place to hang laundry to dry? If you have an old straight ladder, here’s a solution. A coat of spray paint can give new life to the ladder and provide an excellent solution for hanging items or creating shelving in your mud room. Simply sand and clean the ladder surface and spray paint in the colour of your choice. Next, using hooks and chains suspend the ladder from your ceiling to create an instant hanging rack. For added flair,

spray paint the hooks and chain to match your ladder or choose a contrasting colour.

Space to Call Your Own Assigning a space for each family member to store their belongings is the start to excellent organization…and the end of excuses for lost items. A canvas wardrobe organizer, the kind used to store sweaters, can be the perfect solution to create cub-

bies for each person to keep smaller items neat and tidy. Try stenciling labels along the outside of the organizer to ensure everyone knows what goes where. Whether labeling with each family member’s name or initials, school or sports activities, or simply days of the week, Krylon ColorMaster Enamel spray paint works wonders on fabrics to label each compartment and ensure that

you stay organized. If there’s a mess in your mud room, a couple quick and easy DIY organization and storage projects, like the ones described above, can give you and your family order over the chaos. Article supplied by News Canada and written by Krylon.

Save on energy bills by putting the environment first Being environmentally conscious is also going to put money in your pocket. Yes, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint if you have an efficient home and use cleaner products. And with the increasing cost of energy, there are also significant savings to be had by reducing your use of utilities. Here are some eco-improvements that will save you a bundle, and put you on Mother Nature’s ‘good’ list: Insulation: If your house is older, chances are the insulation doesn’t meet the new requirements. An improperly insulated attic is a primary source of energy loss and results in your furnace and air conditioning units working harder than necessary. By topping up the existing attic insulation you can significantly reduce the amount of energy loss. A popular product for this DIY project is called Roxul RockFill insulation. It is easy to work with by simply spreading the product out onto the material that is already there.

House appliances: Replacing your furnace, hot water tank, and air conditioning unit with highly efficient models is usually a good start when reducing the energy consumption of your home. Windows: It’s usually obvious when it’s time for new windows – and the related technology today is far superior to anything that is more than 20 years old. If you want to reap all the benefits of new windows, be sure to tell the installer doing the measurements that you want them to be “brick to brick,” not “inserts”. Inserts leave you with smaller windows placed into the old, inefficient jambs. Quick weekend projects: There are a few quick and simple improvements that you can tackle on your own that will increase the efficiency of your home for very little cash invested upfront. Here is a quick eco-list: • Caulk around windows • Switch to compact florescent bulbs • Add weather stripping to door gaps • Change your furnace filter

• Install low-flow shower heads • Set up a programmable thermostat • Put aerators on faucets

Keeping your yard pet safe

The yard can be a wonderland for your pet, full of interesting smells, grass to roll in, bugs to chase and shady spots for naps. But if you use fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals, it can be a potentially dangerous place too. Dr. Simon Starkey, a veterinarian with PetSmart Canada, gives us some important aspects to keep in mind: Pesticides: Slug bait and pest poisons are particularly dangerous because the taste entices pets to consume them. Small quantities can be very dangerous to your pet. Ask your local nursery for pet-friendly gardening products and follow application instructions carefully. Tightly seal containers and store them in a secure place.

Poisonous Plants and Mushrooms: There are a variety of poisonous plants and flowers that are dangerous to curious pets. Some common poisonous plants include azaleas, lilies, bulb flowers (like tulips), onions, tomato vines and poppies. Mushrooms are the most commonly ingested organic material in the yard. Remove them. Mushrooms are a fungus and they can grow quickly, even overnight, so check your yard frequently. If you suspect your pet has encountered any of the above, be sure to take it to a vet as soon as possible. Article supplied by News Canada and written by Pet Smart.

The air you breathe: Optimizing indoor air quality Did you know that the renewal of air in our homes is only about one-eighth what it was twenty years ago? Or that indoor air in parts of Canada can be as dry as the Sahara desert?

If you’re like most Canadians, chances are you pay little attention 0to the quality of air in your home. In fact, convincing people that air quality is important is a hard sell: it’s not something you can see or feel,

Splash your rooms with colour and patterns Are you all about neutrals when it comes to home décor? Style icon and award-winning fashion designer, Isaac Mizrahi, encourages home owners to get inspired by their surroundings. “Let the blooming flowers of spring inspire you to incorporate pattern and colour into your home,” he suggests. “Don’t be afraid to take a risk, you might love the result. For example, I love mixing prints, my den is a mixture of floral and stripes.” The best way to introduce colour and pattern is to start small. Check out these simple and stylish ways to dress up any home: Start from the ground up – A colourfully patterned rug instantly brightens any room. Work from that rug, whether complementing or contrasting it, for a balanced and complete look.

Keep it comfy – Both functional and stylish, throw pillows add a fun splash of colour to a room. Stay artsy – A colourful painting can transform any room. Hang it above a fireplace, sofa, credenza/sideboard, or a bed to help create a focal point in a room. Accessorize, accessorize – Accent pieces finish the look of a room. “Add flowers, candles and even a Kleenex tissue box as a finishing touch,” says Isaac. His contribution to the brand can be seen at www.Kleenex.com/style. Love it before you buy it – Above all, choose things you love. “If you don’t love it, don’t buy it,” says Isaac. “The best rule of thumb is to surround yourself with things that make you happy in your home.” Article supplied by News Canada.

and it doesn’t always top a homeowner’s priority list. Yet with modern construction practices having substantially reduced natural air leakage, the air in our homes deserves our attention now more than ever. Daily activities such as laundry, cooking and showers can cause excessive moisture, resulting in everything from high humidity and occupant discomfort, to lingering odours and fungus growth. Conversely, a cold, dry winter combined with excessive heating can dry out an indoor space and cause its own structural and health issues, like nosebleeds and scratchy throats. There are three key ways you can keep the air in your home clean: you can ventilate, purify and humidify/dehumidify. Ventilation can be as simple as cracking open a window on a weather-friendly day, or having quality fans and exhaust systems installed in your kitchen and bathroom. For optimum ventilation, you can invest in a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV), which supplies continuous fresh air from the outside

into your house. When it comes to purifying your air, a good air cleaner for your furnace, replaced regularly, is the bare minimum. Air cleaners trap and prevent dirt and other particles from entering your air stream. There are various models available depending on your needs – affordable, stand-alone models you can buy off the shelf, all the way to whole-house air purifiers that attach to your furnace. A hospital-grade HEPA filter, for example, can stop even volatile organic compounds, such as off-gases from carpets and building materials, from entering your air supply. Lastly, there is the question of humidity – too much or too little can create a variety of problems. Humidity extremes can easily be tackled with a humidifier or dehumidifier, and many homes need both for use during different seasons. There are numerous models on the market – both self-standing as well as forced air versions that can be installed right into a furnace.
