If you're about to build or renovate, and you're within reach, you should definitely be checking out this weekend's Sunday Mail Home Show, at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Running from Friday to Sunday, you'll discover everything you need for your next project, from the latest renovation products to the best in green building technology.
Hundreds of useful ideas
Whether you’ve started your project or are just looking for some inspiration, you’ll pick up hundreds of useful ideas and tips.
You’ll find kitchens, bathrooms, doors, windows, appliances, tap ware, surface finishes, flooring, architectural hardware, insulation, cladding, framing, hot water systems, roofing, smart technology, heating and cooling, bricks, paving, solar products and more.
Green technology on display
It will come as no surprise that a major feature at the show will be eco products and green technology. With water and energy rates expected to double in the next five years, there will be a range of practical solutions to meet most budgets.
Energy prices impact every household budget. In the past few years energy prices have risen rapidly and people are looking for solutions to help with the cost of living.
More and more homeowners are using the sun to power savings on their electricity bills and reduce their carbon footprint by installing solar panels.
In fact, more than two million Australian households now have solar hot water or PV systems on their rooftop. If you’re one of them, you will already be benefiting from clean energy, but what’s the next exciting trend in solar and how do you stay ahead of the pack?
Spotlight on energy storage
The answer lies in new energy storage solutions.
These allow excess solar energy to be stored in batteries and then used during peak times to reduce your energy bills or be stored for use at night.
Energy Storage Systems help you access reliable and secure power, with reduced energy costs and in some cases, deliver freedom from the grid.
Energy storage systems will:
- Drive energy savings by using less energy from the grid give you greater control over your energy
- Provide secure and reliable back-up power
- Reduce your carbon footprint
There are a number of different products on the market and the Home Show is a great place to check them out.
