FREE WORKSHOP: Are your windows thermally performing?

Saturday, 15 October 2016, 
10am-12.30pm
Montgomery Childcare Centre, 

47 Lawson St, Essendon

Do you look at windows in terms of the views they give, the character they exude, their style or the increased value to your home? Your windows are also considered a home’s biggest conductors of heat loss and gain. Many people live in older homes where their windows are simply big filters leaking out their valuable heated and cooled air (and dollars) every day – not to mention letting the outside air in. So how do you check your glass doors and windows? What can renters do about it? Is there a cheap fix?

Come along to this free workshop and learn how window and door type, glazing, and surrounding material affect the comfort of your home.

FREE EVENT. Bookings essential. Book online or call 9243 8888.
