Orbiter<br />

route<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A DATE has been set for<br />

a meeting between elderly<br />

Mairehau retirees, Ryman<br />

Healthcare staff and Environment<br />

Canterbury bosses over plans to<br />

re-route the Orbiter.<br />

An ECan spokeswoman<br />

confirmed that chief executive Bill<br />

Bayfield, and chairman<br />

Steve Lowndes, will visit Diana<br />

Isaac Retirement Village on May<br />

11.<br />

“In the meantime, ECan staff<br />

are working with Diana Isaac<br />

Retirement Village management<br />

and residents to seek their advice<br />

while developing options,” she<br />

said.<br />

It comes as a group of 80 retirees<br />

presented ECan a petition,<br />

pleading it to reconsider route<br />

changes to the Orbiter that would<br />

see the closest bus stop move<br />

900m away from the village.<br />

“We’re very pleased. We’ve had<br />

a huge response from residents<br />

in the village, staff and others,”<br />

resident and petition organiser<br />

Graham Tate said.<br />

I’m sure that bus has taken the same route since the dawn<br />

of time, so it’s no wonder people are unhappy with the sudden<br />

change.<br />

The Northern Corridor has a lot to answer for, let’s hope it<br />

pays off.<br />

On page 1, a date has been set for Environment Canterbury<br />

Petition organiser Graham Tate told me they’ve been working<br />

on a number of different proposals that they’ll pitch to chief<br />

executive Bill Bayfield and chairman Steve Lowndes.<br />

Hopefully, they get the response they’re after and a<br />

Larger signs to deter sex workers<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

4 2 2 2<br />

SIGNS ALERTING the<br />

public that CCTV cameras<br />

are operational in residential<br />

Manchester St discouraging<br />

street-based sex work will be<br />

made larger to target drivers.<br />

Since late last year, the city<br />

council has been working with<br />

the community, the New Zealand<br />

Prostitutes Collective and<br />

police, to encourage street-based<br />

sex workers to move away from<br />

residential areas after calls from<br />

residents.<br />

As part of that work six large<br />

signs will be installed in the<br />

St Albans area on Manchester<br />

St to alert people that surveillance<br />

cameras are operating,<br />

city council general manager<br />

citizens and community Mary<br />

Richardson said.<br />

A city council report said:<br />

“These signs (750mm x 750mm)<br />

will replace two small existing<br />

signs (375mm x 375mm) that<br />

are only legible to pedestrians.”<br />

The signs will be installed by<br />

May.<br />

Following the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake, and the loss of<br />

the central city a swell of street<br />

workers moved from the central<br />

city part of Manchester St into<br />

St Albans.<br />

Residents have since been battling<br />

to move the street-workers<br />

on for six years after reports of<br />

needles and syringes, human<br />

faeces, used condoms, and<br />

litter around their properties.<br />

Vandalism to houses and cars<br />

has also been reported, as well<br />

as thefts.<br />

“We have also placed an<br />

an extra rubbish bin on the<br />

Manchester St and Aberdeen<br />

St corner, stepped up street<br />

cleaning in the area, and plan to<br />

install a needle disposal unit.’’<br />

Ms Richardson said.<br />

“We will be talking with local<br />

Staff are also investigating<br />

the traffic engineering options<br />

in the residential St Albans<br />

area north of Bealey Ave after<br />

it was proposed preventing<br />

vehicles from turning into the<br />

northbound lane of Manchester<br />

St from Bealey Ave would also<br />

discourage workers.<br />

Advice on this will be provided<br />

in the coming months.<br />

You can simply move in and start planning how to utilize all the space around<br />

you. Perhaps some horses, or grow some crops, fatten some calves?<br />

The property has well established gardens and shelter belts along with a three<br />

St. ​<br />

It comes as the city<br />

council opposed introducing<br />

a by-law banning street<br />

workers from residential areas<br />

last year.<br />

“Rather than resorting to a<br />

bylaw, which could not necessarily<br />

be enforced, we have been<br />

working with agencies and the<br />

community to find other ways<br />

of tacking the issues,’’ Ms Richardson<br />

said.<br />

But recent monitoring shows<br />

only one or two sex workers are<br />

regularly operating in the area<br />

north of Bealey Ave.<br />

Orbiter route meeting with retirees<br />

•From page 1<br />

The Orbiter stop outside the<br />

village’s entrance on Philpotts Rd<br />

would move 900m away to Innes<br />

Rd.<br />

“It’s a terrible thing to impose<br />

on elderly people,” Mr Tate said.<br />

Mr Tate said before the meeting<br />

with Mr Lowndes and Mr<br />

Bayfield, the group would meeting<br />

with ECan staff to discuss options<br />

and investigate alternatives.<br />

“There are a lot of options, we<br />

can see, that would keep the bus<br />

accessible,” he said.<br />

But while Mr Tate said the<br />

group was “very pleased” with<br />

the prospect of a meeting.<br />

“We won’t be counting our<br />

chickens before they hatch.”<br />

The Orbiter currently runs<br />

along QE II Drive, right into<br />

Philpotts Rd and onto Innes Rd.<br />

But the Northern Corridor<br />

work will restrict right hand<br />

turning in and out of Philpotts<br />

Rd.<br />

ECan plans to change the route<br />

so the bus would use Cranford St<br />

then Innes Rd, skipping out the<br />

QE II Drive and Philpotts Rd section<br />

altogether.<br />

Said ECan chairman Steve<br />

Lowndes: “The only viable option<br />

we have for the Orbiter is to reroute<br />

via Cranford St.”<br />

But Mr Tate said the group was<br />

“optimistic” that ECan would<br />

reconsider.<br />

PASSION: Diana Isaac Retirement Village residents are<br />

opposing ECan’s proposed changes to the Orbiter route, which<br />

would move the bus stop 900m further away from the complex.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

“We’re just waiting to see<br />

something concrete and we’ll<br />

be maintaining representation.<br />

We’d certainly be out protesting<br />

again, but we’re hoping it won’t<br />

come down to that,” he said.<br />

ECan plans to implement the<br />

changes later this year.<br />

In a letter to ECan, Ryman<br />

Healthcare chief executive Gordon<br />

MacLeod said the village was<br />

home to more than 600 residents<br />

and 200 staff, and the Orbiter was<br />

a “crucial” form of transport.<br />

St Bede’s College deputy rector<br />

Gerry Davidson wrote a letter<br />

of support for the petition. He<br />

urged ECan to look at alternate<br />

routes.<br />

Mr Lowndes said ECan is<br />

still looking at other means of<br />

continuing the coverage and one<br />

option could include “one in five,<br />

or one in 10” Orbiter buses going<br />

via the village.<br />

“It definitely feels pretty good,<br />

“We have some pretty good<br />

Call to lower speed limits further<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

HAREWOOD School’s calls for<br />

lower speed limits on its roads<br />

are finally being heard.<br />

But principal Julie Greenwood<br />

said the school would still prefer<br />

limits to be lowered further.<br />

The city council<br />

has opened for<br />

submissions on<br />

a proposal that<br />

would see speed<br />

limits around<br />

Julie<br />

Greenwood<br />

Harewood,<br />

including outside<br />

the school, lowered<br />

to 60km/h.<br />

Parts of Sawyers Arms,<br />

Waimakariri, Harewood, Styx<br />

Mill and Gardiners Rds could all<br />

become 60km/h.<br />

The city council is also proposing<br />

parts of Highstead, Claridges,<br />

Hussey and Harewood<br />

Rd be reduced to 50km/h from<br />

80km/h.<br />

“The proposed speed limit<br />

changes take into account safe<br />

and appropriate speeds in<br />

accordance with the NZTA approved<br />

guides to speed management.<br />

They aim to address the<br />

changing nature of post-quake<br />

north-west Christchurch with its<br />

recent and proposed residential<br />

developments,” a city council<br />

report said.<br />

Ms Greenwood said:” We are<br />

thrilled that the council is consulting<br />

about lowering the speed<br />

limit to 60km/h on Harewood<br />

Rd. We support lowering the<br />

speed and encourage people to<br />

make submissions.”<br />

However, she said the school<br />

would still prefer the limit be<br />

lowered to 50km/h along Harewood<br />

Rd.<br />

“Ten kilometres per hour will<br />

make a positive difference however<br />

making the speed limit<br />

50km/h all along Harewood<br />

Rd would provide consistency<br />

for motorists and make it even<br />

safer.”<br />

Ms Greenwood told the<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> last year that<br />

when many drivers pass the<br />

school, they seem to have a case<br />

of “lead-foot.”<br />

She had been pleading with<br />

the city council to lower the<br />

limit.<br />

Outside pick-up and drop-off<br />

times, the stretch of road in<br />

front of the school is currently<br />

70km/h – though for the last<br />

“The changes seek to mitigate<br />

the effects of increased traffic<br />

flows along previously rural<br />

roads and reduce the risk and<br />

severity of accidents to the residents<br />

and users of these roads,”<br />

monitor Papanui’s Perry St after<br />

reports vehicles had been parking<br />

over a fire hydrant. The board also<br />

approved no stopping restrictions<br />

for the section of the street after<br />

residents expressed concerns that<br />

emergency services would not be<br />

able to access the hydrant in the<br />

event of a fire if a car was parked<br />

on top of it.<br />

HOMEBASE ENTRANCE<br />

Homebase will soon have a<br />

new entrance on Briggs Rd in<br />

a bid to reduce congestion at<br />

the Marshland Rd access. The<br />

city council granted resource<br />

consent for the project and the<br />

Papanui-Innes Community Board<br />

approved road changes as part of<br />

the consenting process at its last<br />

meeting. These include extended<br />

parking restrictions, a central solid<br />

median island and new signage.<br />

WALKING GROUP<br />

A new walking group has been<br />

established in Papanui. Go along<br />

for a gentle 30min walk and<br />

exercise programme. Wednesdays<br />

at 1.15pm from March 14 to July.<br />

All walks leave from St James<br />

Park, St James Rd (entrance<br />

opposite Dalriada St). Wear<br />

suitable clothing and shoes.<br />

Scott writes<br />

about her<br />

concerns<br />

regarding<br />

Environment<br />

Canterbury’s<br />

proposed bus cuts as part<br />

of its draft Long Term Plan<br />

I am writing in regards to the<br />

termination of the bus route<br />

107 from Northlands Shopping<br />

Centre to Styx Mill as proposed<br />

by Environment Canterbury<br />

along with five other essential<br />

bus routes.<br />

I find the termination of this<br />

bus route and others completely<br />

unnecessary for the following<br />

reasons.<br />

One of the reasons given is low<br />

patronage, however, on Friday,<br />

March 9, I travelled on the 107<br />

bus at 8am and returned at 4pm.<br />

On both services there was<br />

standing room only and 70 per<br />

cent of the people were high<br />

school students for whom this was<br />

their only method of transport<br />

to school. So by terminating this<br />

service ECan will essentially be<br />

preventing children from getting<br />

an education. Yes, these children<br />

could bike or walk to school.<br />

However, what happens if they<br />

have a medical condition that<br />

prevents them from doing this<br />

and is it really healthy to bike in<br />

the middle of winter when it is<br />

pouring with rain or the temperature<br />

is below freezing?<br />

I thought the plan was to get<br />

more people using the buses,<br />

especially after the earthquakes,<br />

but by terminating the 107 and<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

Standing room only on some bus services<br />

108 routes it will omit a large<br />

area and also have a huge impact<br />

on retail and tourism. The 107<br />

is the only bus that goes past<br />

Willowbank and this is used by<br />

tourists every week.<br />

I have had the privilege to direct<br />

tourists to the 107 bus to get<br />

to Willowbank. I personally use<br />

the 107 to go to the Supa Centre<br />

on a regular basis and will no<br />

longer shop there if this service<br />

is terminated.<br />

From a personal point of view<br />

I am unable to drive and therefore<br />

rely on public transport<br />

every day. The termination of<br />

the 107 will mean I have to walk<br />

to the next nearest bus and with<br />

acute asthma that often flares up<br />

in winter this will be impractical<br />

and cause me to have significantly<br />

more time off work.<br />

I also have an elderly mother<br />

who visits once a week and<br />

would not be able to walk from<br />

Northlands to my house so<br />

relies on the 107 bus. My elderly<br />

neighbours are also very afraid<br />

it will prevent them from having<br />

any social life if this is terminated<br />

and I believe this applies<br />

to a large number of people in<br />

the area.<br />

There is a new retirement<br />

home being built at the end of<br />

Cavendish Rd which will have<br />

no bus access nearby so many<br />

residents will not be able to go<br />

and visit friends and family.<br />

As for the other routes being<br />

terminated I know there are<br />

many people that use one of<br />

these routes for access to and<br />

from Burwood Hospital for<br />

ongoing therapy and care.<br />

Again if this route is terminated<br />

health care of these patients<br />

will be in jeopardy and they will<br />

not get the quality healthcare<br />

they need. There are also other<br />

school students affected by the<br />

termination of the 145 route.<br />

Even if the routes ran on<br />

reduced frequency it will still<br />

be beneficial to keep them. Has<br />

ECan even considered this as an<br />

option? It appears not.<br />

Buses are lifelines to the community.<br />

Please don’t limit access<br />

Stephan Lance Gardiner<br />

the girls trials, and is one of two<br />

Christchurch girls named.<br />

In the boys trial squad, Maadi<br />

been named the best South<br />

Island boys’ school, Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High students Jack<br />

Chapman, Matt White, Tom<br />

Woelders and Will Gilbert were<br />

also named as trialists.<br />

WORK IS well under way<br />

on a $500,000 project at the<br />

Waimairi Tennis Club, in<br />

Watford St, which will see<br />

improved surfaces for all seven<br />

courts on the Strowan site.<br />

Damaged by<br />

liquefaction<br />

and cracking<br />

following the<br />

earthquakes,<br />

the courts<br />

Lloyd Russell<br />

were repaired<br />

sufficiently to<br />

allow play to<br />

continue for the past seven years<br />

but the time had come for a major<br />

revamp, said club president<br />

Lloyd Russell.<br />

“Work started in January<br />

and play at the club has been<br />

out of action for three months<br />

with coaching and tennis<br />

programmes transferred to<br />

other venues. We’re very<br />

grateful to Elmwood and St<br />

Paul’s Tennis Clubs for letting<br />

us use their courts during this<br />

period.<br />

“And we’re very appreciative<br />

of the immediate neighbours<br />

who have been understanding<br />

while this sometimes noisy and<br />

dusty work is being carried out.”<br />

Four of the new courts will<br />

be cushioned hard courts for<br />

competition play and the other<br />

three are all-weather synthetic<br />

turf surfaces for coaching and<br />

training.<br />

Work is expected to be completed<br />

by the end of <strong>April</strong> and an<br />

ASTROTURF: Work is well under way at the Waimairi Tennis Club in Watford St as new<br />

surfaces are laid on the club’s seven courts. ​<br />

official opening celebration will<br />

be held at the start of the new<br />

season in September.<br />

The largest club in Canterbury,<br />

Waimairi has 370 juniors<br />

and 140 seniors.<br />

It has teams in many competitions.<br />

Waimairi was named 2017<br />

Club of the Year and was also a<br />

finalist for overall outstanding<br />

club of the year at the recent<br />

SENIOR LIVING<br />

Centuries old folk remedy<br />

supports good health!<br />

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health<br />

benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.<br />

Since the time of Hippocrates – the<br />

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been<br />

renowned for its curative properties.<br />

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS &<br />

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis<br />

reports how he found that Vermonters<br />

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey<br />

had excellent health with many putting in<br />

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even<br />

when well into their eighties. He also noted<br />

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be<br />

remarkable with many patients reporting<br />

almost total relief after taking a course<br />

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that<br />

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar<br />

counteracted calcium deposits and helped<br />

the body control calcium use. He also noted<br />

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and<br />

H around meal time had excellent blood<br />

pressure and circulation. The reason he<br />

found was that protein foods thickened the<br />

blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood<br />

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly<br />

through the blood vessels and capillaries.<br />

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular<br />

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as<br />

well as waste elimination from the cells.<br />

To prevent cell damage the body naturally<br />

increases blood pressure but this puts<br />

more stress on the blood vessels, organs<br />

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals<br />

will help prevent protein raising the blood<br />

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling<br />

of greater well-being because the thinner<br />

blood circulates quickly and more easily<br />

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found<br />

regular consumption of CV and H to be<br />

an excellent health tonic with numerous<br />

Health attributes.<br />

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all<br />

the goodness of the apple in a form that is<br />

readily accepted by the bodyGood health<br />

starts with good digestion and assimilation<br />

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will<br />

stimulate and promote healthy digestion<br />

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good<br />

health. A well-functioning digestive system<br />

helps prevent disease by neutralising any<br />

toxic substances that enter the body.<br />

It is important to note not all ACV is<br />

produced in the traditional way and results<br />

are likely to prove disappointing with these<br />

other vinegars.<br />

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV<br />

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in<br />

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in<br />

the traditional way. It is double strength so<br />

you can use less.<br />

Ultimate beauty oil?<br />

Are you looking for a beauty oil that<br />

contains a blend of some of the most<br />

effective oils available and that these oils are<br />

just 100% pure and natural with no fillers<br />

or cheap additives?<br />

Our new ULTIMATE BEAUTY OIL<br />

BLEND contains a perfect combination of<br />

three of the best natural healing and skin<br />

restoration oils available to give your skin<br />

what it needs!<br />

The first oil is the remarkable Organic<br />

Dilo. One of the best kept secrets of the<br />

Pacific Islands Dilo oil may however be the<br />

number one natural beauty oil available.<br />

According to ethnobotanist<br />

Chris Kilham, Dilo is a<br />

powerful skin regenerator, as<br />

it is one of the most effective<br />

agents in promoting the<br />

regeneration and formation<br />

of new skin tissue. It is superabsorbing<br />

and can penetrate<br />

all three layers of the skin,<br />

offering exceptional cell<br />

hydration and regeneration.<br />

Dilo contains powerful<br />

antibacterial, antioxidant and<br />

anti-inflammatory properties<br />

which promotes the growth<br />

of healthy and glowing skin.<br />

Organic Argan oil (or liquid<br />

gold) is the next amazing<br />

oil that is extremely rich in<br />

beneficial nutrients, fatty<br />

acids and vitamin E. It gives<br />

the skin a youthful glow<br />

restores elasticity and leaves<br />

the skin feeling plumper and<br />

softer.<br />

ACV SUPPORTS<br />

• Healthy digestion, assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes<br />

• Energy – Vitality – Endurance<br />

• Elimination of viruses, bacteria, fungus & parasites<br />

• Powerful antioxidant<br />

• Cardiovascular health, blood flow & healthy blood pressure<br />

• Diabetes – improves insulin sensitivity<br />

• Arthritis & joint support • Longevity & improved health<br />

• Settles the stomach & reduces reflux<br />

• Weight Loss<br />

Wild Rosehip is the final powerful oil. It<br />

is known to hydrate the skin and correct<br />

skin damage over a period of time. It is well<br />

known to help with scars, stretch marks,<br />

age spots, skin pigmentation and reduce<br />

the signs of premature aging.<br />

The ULTIMATE BEAUTY OIL BLEND<br />

helps give your skin the nourishment and<br />

nutrition it may require to restore itself and<br />

keep it vibrant and flawless.<br />

International Rugby Programme<br />

The <strong>2018</strong> Burnside High School International Rugby Programme (IRP)<br />

commenced on 19 March. This year there are boys and girls from Germany,<br />

Argentina, Italy, Korea, Japan, Afghanistan and Scotland in the group. The<br />

IRP provides a programme of detailed rugby skill instruction, weight-training,<br />

speed and agility sessions and of course rugby team involvement until the<br />

end of August.<br />

The first two weeks involve detailed orientation with several guest speakers<br />

as well as physical and skill testing. The orientation is designed to help<br />

the students enjoy their homestay experience, to provide advice on how<br />

to proactively interact with their team-mates and to understand the New<br />

Zealand road rules - all in all, how to enjoy the next 22 weeks of their rugby<br />

adventure. The IRP has been running at Burnside High School from 2014 but<br />

has already produced Olympians in Sevens and male and female national<br />

team players in 7s and 15s.<br />

BHS PTA Uniform Shop<br />

The PTA Uniform Shop stocks new and second hand items. The shop<br />

is located at the front of the school in A1. Now is the time to purchase<br />

winter uniforms, all items are available at the shop.<br />

Opening Hours are:<br />

Monday lunchtime 1:00pm - 2:00pm<br />

Tuesdays after school 2.45pm - 4.00pm<br />

Wednesday 4th <strong>April</strong> after school 2.30pm - 4.00pm<br />

A visit from Seasprite helicopter<br />

The Navy Seasprite Helicopter is en route to the Warbirds Over Wanaka<br />

Airshow. When the opportunity arose for the Seasprite helicopter to make<br />

school visits on its way south, Burnside High School jumped at the chance.<br />

STEM activities and exhibitions<br />

Fifteen students from Ashburton College and Burnside High School<br />

recently gathered at the Burnside Campus for four days of Germantaught<br />

STEM activities and exhibitions (science, technology, engineering<br />

& mathematics).<br />

This opportunity was offered to all German-learning students from<br />

the two schools as part of the PASCH schools program through the<br />

Goethe-Institut, and was overseen by Goethe staff member Judith<br />

Geare.<br />

The foundation of the course was laid out on the first day, Friday,<br />

where Bianca Violet and Philipp Legner from Imaginary introduced<br />

the students to several computer programs based on fractals and<br />

polynomial graphing. From there the students were set free to think<br />

up their own exhibition projects and take them from paper sketches to<br />

reality over the next three days.<br />

With Christ The King School directly across the road they were also warmly<br />

welcomed over.<br />

As part of our career development programme, we invite many tertiary<br />

providers to speak with our students throughout the year, to provide them<br />

with a wide range of information and to assist them with their decision<br />

making. It is not often that they turn up in a helicopter!<br />

Today's helicopter visit was an amazing opportunity for 20 students who<br />

have expressed an interest in the Defence Force. They not only got to see a<br />

piece of the Defence Force in action; they also got to interact with the flight<br />

crew and pick their brains about the variety of occupations available. Many<br />

subject classes also benefited from the Seasprite’s visit, including Science<br />

classes discussing the transfer of energy that occurs during a helicopter take<br />

off; Physics classes discussing the rotor blades; and Mathematics classes with<br />

problem sets based around helicopters.<br />

We are grateful to the Defence Force for offering this opportunity to our<br />

school.<br />

Ideas ranged from metre-tall double pendulums to intricate optical<br />

illusions, something from every aspect of the STEM curriculum.<br />

The exhibits will be set up for viewing at the Burnside High School<br />

library until the end of Term 1 and then will travel down to Ashburton to<br />

allow all interested students (and keen maths teachers) to view, learn<br />

and interact.<br />

HEALTH & BEAUTY<br />

The health<br />

effects of sugar<br />

Should we be alarmed or is this<br />

likely to be another area that science<br />

backtracks on?<br />

The answer to that question is Yes,<br />

we should be worried, there are real<br />

problems caused by the volume of sugar<br />

being consumed by the average person<br />

and when look back over the last decades<br />

the problem is getting worse, not better.<br />

developments in research and<br />

understanding the fields of nutrition<br />

and food safety change how we view<br />

products we consume and patterns of<br />

consumption can make the negative<br />

effects of foods more pronounced.<br />

while these advances should be<br />

embraced, as each development leads<br />

to better understanding and health<br />

outcomes it can also be frustrating to<br />

the average consumer who can feel like<br />

just when they ‘get’ a good healthy eating<br />

plan together, the rules change.<br />

The recommendations for sugar are a<br />

good example of how information can<br />

be confusing, some sources encourage<br />

the complete ban on all sugar containing<br />

products and others, such as the heart<br />

foundation recommend a reduction<br />

rather than complete removal.<br />

It’s not so confusing though really, at<br />

no time in history has sugar ever been<br />

presented as a healthy food, but as in the<br />

past it took more effort to consume sugar<br />

it was less of a problem, we could ‘get<br />

away with it’.<br />

In the past sugar was something that<br />

you could control through how much<br />

you added, in baking and to your cup of<br />

tea. This knowledge then transferred into<br />

the first generation of convenience food,<br />

if it was sweet, it had sugar in it.<br />

what we now face as a challenge is<br />

not that suddenly sugar is bad, but that<br />

it is added, often quietly, to many of the<br />

processed foods we consume, even when<br />

they aren’t sweet.<br />

The availability and often-reduced<br />

price of these foods compared to<br />

healthier option make them an easy<br />

choice to the time poor or uneducated<br />

consumer.<br />

There are some simple tips you can<br />

follow, including reading food labels;<br />

consuming as much food as possible<br />

in a state close to its natural form and<br />

avoiding sugary drinks. Consumers also<br />

need to be aware of marketing claims<br />

that do not provide the full nutritional<br />

picture of a product.<br />

A sensible place to start is by<br />

combining a diet low in processed food<br />

and sugar combined with regular activity<br />

What we now face as<br />

a challenge is not that<br />

suddenly sugar is bad, but<br />

that it is added, often quietly<br />

to many of the processed<br />

foods we consume, even<br />

when they aren’t sweet.<br />

as the path to long-term health.<br />

For more advice and direction to<br />

improve your health talk to your<br />

registered exercise professional, they can<br />

offer some advice and are able to refer<br />

you to sources of information and other<br />

nutritional professionals that you<br />

can trust.<br />

Summer cooling<br />

“Did you know your heat pump is an air<br />

conditioner?”<br />

BUT!! If you bought it for heating it will<br />

struggle to cool the area as cooling is always<br />

less output e.g. Mitsubishi Electric MSZGE42<br />

= 5kW heating and 4.2kW cooling. So always<br />

ask your installer if you want cooling as well as<br />

heating. We at Air Con Christchurch always<br />

advise what we have quoted for.<br />

Heating tips<br />

Select “Heat” on heat pump and set<br />

temperature at approximately 21 – 22 degrees<br />

with fan on Auto<br />

Cooling tips<br />

Select “Cooling” and set at 20 – 22 degrees this<br />

will save you up to 30% running costs and still<br />

be cool (try it and see). 16 degrees is too low.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or<br />

a retrofit, most homes include<br />

at least one heat pump, if not a<br />

whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are<br />

much more convenient than a log<br />

burner as you just need to press a<br />

button. But how do you decide<br />

what is best? Choosing the right<br />

sized heat pump is key to ensuring<br />

optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore<br />

important to get professional<br />

advice from heat pump experts.<br />

The range varies from wall<br />

mounted high walls, floor mounted systems,<br />

multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through<br />

to ducted central heating systems allowing<br />

you to have a very discreet way of heating<br />

your whole home to a constant temperature<br />

throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is<br />

suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it is<br />

important to select<br />

the correct size for<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the<br />

right advice.<br />

your requirements<br />

that will handle<br />

the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily<br />

overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the<br />

location of your<br />

heat pump is also extremely important. The<br />

cheapest installation is a back to back where<br />

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind<br />

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily<br />

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands<br />

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of<br />

systems and price, so it depends on your<br />

application as to which will be most suitable.<br />

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,<br />

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are<br />

all reliable brands backed up by good technical<br />

after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to<br />

consider when<br />

choosing a heat pump<br />

are time clocks, ease<br />

of use of the remote<br />

controllers, air<br />

filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home and it is vital to get<br />

the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<br />

to which system will suit your application<br />

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no<br />

obligation quote and will come to your home<br />

to see what is required. Visit our website at<br />

www.enviromaster.co.nz.<br />

Fresh air<br />

in your home<br />

All houses require air exchange in order<br />

to stay fresh and dry. No one likes to live<br />

in a stuffy, smelly, damp home. Indoor air<br />

quality is important for the health of the<br />

occupants. Houses can have many sources of<br />

contaminants, such as bathrooms, kitchens,<br />

pets, smokers, and even furnishings. Opening<br />

the windows can refresh the air, but is not<br />

always an option for security reasons and can<br />

also lead to heat energy being lost to outside.<br />

Although older houses have small gaps around<br />

windows and doors, you want to be able to<br />

control the flow of air. You don’t want air<br />

coming in to the bathroom or kitchen and<br />

pushing the soiled air around the house. It<br />

is better to expel the air out of kitchens and<br />

bathrooms to outside. This will draw air in<br />

from the rest of the house to replace the air that<br />

has been removed.<br />

Modern houses are very airtight and<br />

theoretically require a source of incoming air<br />

to allow kitchen and bathroom extraction to<br />

work optimally. Ventilation systems should be<br />

low air velocity and low air pressure so as not<br />

to cause draughts.<br />

There are two main types of ventilation system:<br />

Positive pressure and Balanced pressure.<br />

Positive pressure systems, such as the Dry-<br />

Matic, bring filtered, warmed attic air into<br />

the house, which then percolates through the<br />

rooms, pushing the damper stale air out.<br />

Balanced pressure systems bring in a similar<br />

amount of air to the amount they exhaust.<br />

Balanced pressure systems with Heat<br />

Exchange, such as the HEX390, use the heat<br />

of the outgoing air to warm the incoming<br />

air from outside. These are the most energy<br />

efficient systems available, as they recover up<br />

to 80% of the energy in the air, rather than<br />

losing it to outside. Heat exchangers work just<br />

as well cooling incoming air when the house is<br />

cooled in summer.<br />

The NZ building code has recommended<br />

air exchange rates for houses. To ascertain<br />

the required airflow for your home, please<br />

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH<br />

(0800 766 684), who will also be able to<br />

recommend a solution if your ventilation<br />

doesn’t yet meet the New Zealand standard.<br />
