11 Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District Weatherproofing tips for your house design Insulation and double glazed windows are compulsory in new homes making them infinitely superior to their older counterparts for warmth yet more can be done to weatherproof a new home. Underfloor insulation Foam insulated expanded polystyrene panels under the concrete slab act as an insulating barrier, stopping cold coming through from under the house. Garages Insulating the garage and its door will cut down on a steady stream of cold air sneaking into the house. An insulated garage door can lift the temperature substantially even when the garage itself is not heated, making it a more pleasant place to spend time. Any home appliances kept in the garage will use less electricity as they will not have to work as hard and your car battery may last longer. Roof design Roof designs vary. The simplest way to achieve a weather tight house is to have a simple roof design with an overhanging surfeit. Architectural flat roofs will work though more care is needed to achieve weather tightness especially where there are hidden or back roof gutters. Having a roof with no overhang also requires more care with the design due to its complexity and potential for problems. Regular maintenance to clean out leaves and debris that gets caught in the roof will be advantageous in both cases. Porticos Taking the roof out beyond the house is ideal for providing a sheltered area for spending time outdoors when the weather is inclement. Snow straps or guttering protection Wherever snow is a likely part of winter, installation of snow straps is a good idea. These prevent damage to guttering from the weight of snow as it slides off the roof. Alternatively, an expanded steel mesh product such as Gutter Guard could be fitted. This has the added benefit of preventing spouting blockages from leaf and other debris. Capitalise on the sun Maximise the sun’s free energy with plenty of windows, especially on the north side of the house. Outdoor areas When choosing a house design, consider how it will sit on the section and whether it offers potential to catch sun inside the home and for sunny sheltered outdoor areas away from prevailing winds. Windows and doors Upgrade on the minimum standard for double glazing with thermally broken joinery and low-emissivity argon gas filled windows and doors, increasing insulation effectiveness. Energy efficient heating Explore heating options, selecting what will work best given the size of home and family needs. Heat pumps are an efficient form of heating with two cassette and energy saving options available while heat transfer systems are great if there is a log burner. Extending the roof beyond the house creates a sheltered area. Explore energy saving heating options. Low-E argon gas filled double glazing increases insulation.
