Proximity, affordability, good public transport and education. There’s a lot to like about Newnham. Written by: Lance Skelton

The suburb of Newnham lies on the northern outskirts of Launceston, and appeals to couples, young families, professionals, university students, and property investors. Newnham is on the East Tamar Highway, and borders the beautiful Tamar River. There is a good mix of

housing which includes traditional brick and tile homes from the sixties and seventies, rustic weatherboard and iron-roofed properties on large blocks, modern brick and Colour-Bond steel roofing on compact blocks, as well as grand old homesteads with beautiful gardens that back onto the river.

Property Values Newnham is located only 10 mins away from ‘Launy’, and for this reason alone makes it a suburb to watch. Real estate prices have remained stagnant for a while (only 1.17% change in the last 12 months), but there are some encouraging signs. Prices in

Launceston have risen by 5.1% in the last 12 months, and suburbs nearby tend to follow suit. For example, Invermay, which lies in-between Newnham and Launceston has increased in price by 4.5% in the last 12 months. A quick look on a real estate website shows that you can pick up a solid three bedroom brick home in Newnham for around the $200,000 mark, which represents exceptional value for money by Tasmania standards, let alone the rest of Australia.

Newnham has a lot going for it; excellent infrastructure; medical facilities, good public transport, restaurants and cafes are all nearby. Imagine that around 6km from Newnham you can do a wine tour or have an adventure at the Cataract Gorge Reserve. Newnham also boasts significant higher educational facilities that include a large University of Tasmania Campus and the Australian Maritime College.

Proper home heating maintenance can make a big difference to performance

It’s cold, wet and windy. Let’s talk home heating. Written by: Lance Skelton

With the first cold snap hitting Tassie a few weeks ago, now’s the time to get your home heating in order, if you haven’t already. Proper maintenance can make a big difference to energy efficiency and overall performance, regardless of the heating system you have in your home.

The Heat Pump The most common type of heating in Tasmania is the ‘heat pump’,

which is also known as the ‘reverse cycle air conditioner’ depending on which part of the world you live in. Heat pumps are by far the most efficient form of electric heating, achieving efficiencies at least three times greater than other heaters*. Other advantages include the ease of use, comparatively low

greenhouse gas emissions, and the capacity to provide cooling over the summer period with a simple change of settings. When it comes to service and maintenance, most manufacturers recommend a standard service once every 12 months, especially if the system is being used

continuously throughout the year. A standard service will take around 1.5 hours to complete by a professional technician. This involves flushing, cleaning and removing grime from the inner workings of the indoor and outdoor units. Typical maintenance issues include a build up of dust, lint, spider webs, mould, bacteria and algae. These can all have a detrimental affect on the overall operation, running cost efficiencies, noise levels, health benefits and longevity of the system. * Source: Sustainable Living Tasmania

Wood Fire Heaters Let’s face it, it doesn’t get more romantic than cuddling on the couch with your partner, sharing a glass of red wine, and having the gentle orange glow and crackle of a wood fire in the background.

Wood fire heaters have got it all over electric heating in terms of ambience, and the sense of connecting with nature indoors. Also, in rural areas of Tasmania, wood is readily available at minimal cost and represents the most affordable option for many people. Just before you start cranking up your wood fire heater for another winter in Tasmania, there’s also a few service and maintenance considerations to ensure your system is working efficiently (and safely) this winter. Wood fire heaters can vary enormously in their efficiency, which is why regular servicing and maintenance is vital. One of the simplest ways to check on the efficiency of your wood fire heater is to go outside and look at the smoke coming out of the flue. If there’s lots of smoke coming out, then it’s not working efficiently. Apart from contributing to greenhouse gases and wasting energy that could otherwise be heating your home, a smoky flue indicates a potential fire hazard. Regular servicing of a wood heater and its flue system addresses two key fire hazard risk areas: it will remove any creosote that has accumulated in the heater or flue. Creosote is a substance that forms when the gases from burning wood condense on their way out of the flue, leaving a black tar-like material. This can build up over time and block the flue, leading to inefficient heater operation, and in extreme cases, this can trigger a house fire. Maintaining a proper working wood fire heater can be a dirty and dangerous job if you’re climbing up on roof tops, and it is best left to a professional. Your wood fire heating manufacturer should be able to organise a licensed professional to carry out the job, or at least point you in the right direction.

Gas Heating Natural gas has not been around for long in Tasmania. In fact, the

first commercial and residential consumers were connected in 2004. Since then, the take up of natural gas in Tasmania has been steadily growing, although it still accounts for a small sector of the residential market. To have natural gas in your home, you’ll need to be connected, and there is a fee involved (for details on this contact TAS GAS). For those who are connected, they’ll tell you it’s one of the safest fuels you can use, and is more efficient than electricity or a wood fire heater for warming a room. Natural gas heating provides instant, intensive heat without draughts, dust or condensation. Natural gas is perfect to use on those cold winter mornings when it’s hard to get moving, or to simply switch on when you get home from work, and you want to feel warm straight away. There’s also lots of options; you might choose the comfort of a central heating system, the practicality of a wall heating appliance, or the romance of a feature fireplace. For details on all the options, and advice on what you’ll need to do to switch over to natural gas, talk

with your local licensed plumber, or contact TAS GAS. You may even be entitled to a heating rebate.

Pellet Heaters Pellet heating is a relatively new type of home heating that was first introduced into Australia in 2001. On the outside, pellet heaters look similar to a wood fire heater. You can still experience the warm, orange glow of a flame from behind the glass, they still sit on top of a hearth, only they’re a little smaller in size and come in a range of colours. However, they work completely differently. Pellet heaters burn compressed hardwood pellets instead of firewood. The pellets are made from compressed sawdust and waste wood that would otherwise be dumped into landfills or left to rot in the forest. The pellets burn at a low combustion rate by reducing the fuel load whereas a wood heater controls combustion by reducing oxygen. Pellet heating is considered to be an extremely cost effective and convenient heat source. One tonne

of pellets equates to over 4 tonnes or 10 meters of fire wood. A typical Tasmanian pellet heater customer consumes around 1 tonne of pellets per winter season*. Another feature of Pellet heaters is that they have the lowest emission rate of any wood burner available in Australasia. Pellet heaters are virtually smokeless and generate heat that is both efficient and carbon neutral. This means when you use pellet heat, you are NOT contributing to any greenhouse gases. Like any form of home heating, Pellet heaters require skilled service technicians to service and repair them from time to time. Source. Pellet Fires Tasmania

Launceston pellet plant opens, Pellet Heating industry surges ahead Neville Smith Forest Products has recently commissioned a large scale, state of the art pellet mill, which sustainably utilizes all of its hardwood production waste. This sawmill residue was previously destined for landfill. The NSFP pellet mill in Launceston and Oakdale Industries in Hobart, provide 100% pure Tasmanian Oak pellets, with enough combined volume to comfortably service all existing and future owners of pellet heaters in Tasmania. Pure hardwood pellets are preferred by consumers for their calorific value, low ash and clean burning properties. A pellet heater creates clean and comfortable heat by efficiently burn-

ing small wood pellets, delivered to your home in a convenient 15kg bag.

programmable timer to automatically turn them on and off.

Prior to the NSFP mill’s commissioning in January this year, Pellet Fires Tasmania had previously needed to import pellet fuel to complement the limited local supply.

“Sales for pellet heating has skyrocketed as a result of last year’s energy crisis and has become the preferred choice for people who cannot get natural gas or do not want to manage a wood heater,” Mr Douglas said.

Pellet Fires Tasmania owner Rob Douglas said pellet heaters provided the warmth of a wood heater, but with the convenience of a gas heater. “Many people tell us that heat pumps just don’t provide the degree of comfort they want and that they are looking for alternatives,” he said. Pellet heaters are clean burning, virtually smoke free and controlled by a thermostat that contains a

It costs about $700 each winter to heat a typical Tasmanian home using pellet heating. “Tasmanian-made pellet fuel sells for $11 per 15kg bag in our Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone stores which equates to less than 16 cents per kilowatt hour of heating energy,” he said.

“One tonne of pellets equals more than four tonnes of firewood and with a 15kg bag of pellets burning for up to 28 hours, pellets are a very cost-effective heat source.” Tasmania currently has the largest range of pellet heaters in the country, with more than 21 models to choose from and a range of hydronic pellet heaters for central heating. Pellet Fires Tasmania has showrooms and fuel depots in Hobart, Ulverstone and Launceston to ensure statewide fuel distribution and customer service. More information, visit pellet.com.au

Decorating tips for your Open Home

How to create a ‘wow factor’ at your first Open Home. Written by: Lance Skelton

If you’ve decided to sell your home, and you’re aiming to achieve the maximum sales price, then there’s a lot riding on your first couple of ‘Open Home’. This is when interest in your property will be at its highest, and when you need to have your home looking at its absolute best. Open Homes give you an opportunity to create a ‘wow factor’ that enables your home to shine and to stand out from the competition. This doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune to prepare your home for the big day. Instead, try and go through the entire home (inside and out) with a fresh set of eyes, knowing that first impressions are everything.

Street appeal

Less is very much more

Start with the front garden. Make sure the lawns are freshly mowed, the edges are neat and tidy, the garden beds have been weeded, your letterbox is not overflowing with junk mail, plants have been watered, and your front patio has no toys or garden tools lying around. You might even think of adding fresh mulch to the garden beds. None of this is difficult or expensive, and creates instant street appeal.

Now for the inside. If you’ve lived in your home for a few years, then you’d be amazed at all the things you’ve accumulated, and how easily rooms can feel cluttered over time without you even realising. Clutter is a big ‘turn off’ for homebuyers, and can seriously impact on the appeal of the home. If you’re not sure where to begin, think about inviting a good friend over whose decorating taste you admire. They’ll be able to help you look for ways you can pare back.

For instance, any furniture or decorating that tends to hide the best features of your house needs to be removed. It could be anything; there might be beautiful parquetry flooring that’s obscured by an ugly old rug, a stunning view from the kitchen window that’s now hidden by dozens of pot plants out on the balcony, or too many family photos throughout the house that makes each room feel smaller, as well as impacting on the homebuyer’s ability to imagine the home as their own. In a similar way, if you have limited storage space in your bedroom, kitchen, bathroom or pantry, then make sure you’re not hording appliances or accessories that you don’t use. Pack them all up into boxes and stick them in the garage or shed if you’re not quite ready to part with them. It’s the same with clothes and fashion accessories in your wardrobes. As a general rule, if you haven’t used an item in two years, then you don’t need it.

Your home needs to be clean and fresh We all have different states of cleanliness that we can live with, but when you’re having a ‘Open Home’ everything needs to be spotless. For this reason, you may need to call in a professional cleaner if you don’t have the time to do it all yourself. For a couple of hundreds dollars, it’s money well spent. A professional cleaner will go through your entire house, room by room, removing all the dust and grime that has been accumulated over the years. There’s a lot to do, especially if it hasn’t been done for some time. If you want to give it a crack yourself, then start by cleaning all the places you can see (walls, floors, carpets, toilet bowls, sinks and windows), and then the hidden corners you can’t see (get behind the stove and refrigerator, behind the TV unit, vacuum up the dust from behind the bedside tables, at the base of the wardrobe and pantry). While you’re at it, make sure that you remove any cobwebs on the ceilings, fans and windows. A proper cleaning of your house is a fiddly process that can take a weekend or two to complete. But

it’s not really an option if you’re wanting to achieve the maximum sales price for your property. It needs to be done.

Little touches There’s plenty of little touches that you can do to your home prior to your first ‘Open Home’. For instance, make sure all your lights are working. If any bulbs aren’t working, replace them. If you have lots of natural light, then open up the curtains to create a light and airy feel. Think about using fresh

sheets and doonas on the beds, perhaps some new throw cushions for the lounge room. Above all, you want people to feel comfortable when they walk inside. So if the weather is cold outside, make sure the heating is on inside. Also, never underestimate the sense of smell; fresh flowers on the dining table and candles (or even freshly brewed coffee) can bring your home to life.

The big day itself You’ve improved the street appeal

11

(tick), you’ve carried out a serious declutter (tick), you’ve cleaned every room from top to bottom (tick), and you’ve added some little touches that have brought your home to life (tick). All that’s left is the big day itself. If your real estate agent has done their job well in terms of marketing and promotion, and your home is at a realistic price to begin with, then you should expect to have a number of prospective buyers (and a few nosey neighbours) coming through your home, and going through every room of your house. While 99% of people are there for the right reasons, make sure you gather up any personal items such as jewellery and tuck it away in a safe place. Open Homes generally go for one hour, so you might think about going to a nearby café for awhile and leaving it to your agent to answer any questions that might arise. Remember, you only need one person to think your home ticks all the right boxes and is perfect for them. Be patient. Keep your home looking its best for every Open Home, and good luck.

You don’t need to be a green thumb to have a beautiful garden How to turn your garden into a feature Written by: Lance Skelton

If you’re prepared to get your hands dirty once in a while, then it’s not hard to have a gorgeous low maintenance garden in Tasmania. Like anything, the more time you spend in the garden the quicker it can be transformed. It really comes down to how big your garden is, what it is you’re wanting to achieve, and how much you’re prepared to spend in both time and money.

A simple garden makeover If the purpose is to create an attractive garden that will help with the sale of your property, then it’s very easy to do a simple garden makeover over the course of a weekend or two. Start by working with what’s already there. If you have lawn, then mow it, and

while you’re at it, do the edges. If you have garden beds, then make sure they’re weeded. Most weeds come out very easily with a small garden trowel, or for tougher weeds, get in underneath with a pitch fork. You might think about buying a trailer load of mulch to spread over the garden beds once they’re weeded to make it look even tidier. If you have an old hedge that’s out of control, then give it a good prune. It doesn’t need to be perfectly manicured, but by giving some shape to the hedge it can become a beautiful feature of the garden. For instant colour, think about buying some garden pots or hanging baskets and dropping in flowers likes petunias and azaleas, which flower most times of the year. To see what’s in stock at the moment, or to get some other great ideas that don’t cost a fortune, head down to your local nursery.

Bird baths, garden benches and fish ponds. Is there a section of your garden that you don’t know what to do with?

A ‘dead zone’ where just nothing seems to grow? Well, maybe it’s time to try something completely different. There’s lots of nifty ideas that can create a calming environment in a section of your garden. These include beautiful bird baths, ornate wrought iron and steel garden benches, and big pots that you can easily convert to a fish pond with the addition of hardy, brightly coloured goldfish and water lilies. These newly created sections of the garden can become inviting meditative areas to relax and unwind. It’s just a matter of opening your eyes up to other possibilities.

Planting trees and shrubs. There are some spectacular varieties of plants and shrubs that thrive in the cool temperate climate of tasmania. Depending on the size of your yard, you can look at growing camellias or magnolias, or even silver birches and poplar trees if more space is available. Both these tree varieties can take years to mature, but if you have the patience, they can grow to become a stunning addition to your garden. Again, to get more ideas on what might be suitable for your needs, it’s worth a visit to your local nursery.

THE CARPET CLEANING SPECIALISTS We clean with the latest innovative technology, truck mounted machine that generates its own hot water. Carpets dry in around three hours. This technology is also environmentally friendly, and safe for pets.
