Many Australians suffer from allergies, respiratory and skin problems associated with particulate matter and chemicals in the air. The air inside your home or office is typically two to five times worse than the air outdoors and can aggravate illness. In newly constructed homes, the allergen level can be up to 200% higher than older buildings.
The average adult breathes 13,000 litres of air per day and the average Australian spends 90% of their time indoors, so it’s important to consider the air quality in your home or office.
There are three classes of indoor air contamination. These are: particulates, microorganisms and volatile organic compounds. We outline each one below.
Size: 0.3 to 10 microns (the average cross-section of a human hair is 50 microns)
Examples: Mites, pollen, spores, pet dander
Associated problems: Asthma, emphysema, lung disease, allergies, chronic bronchitis, constricted airways, sinus problems, mould and fungal infections particulates
Size: Bacteria -0.2 to 5 microns; Virus -0.005 to 0.1 microns
Examples: Bacteria, colds, influenza, viruses
Associated problems: Influenza, common colds, tuberculosis, legionella, pulmonary disease, digestive problems
Volatile Organic Compounds
Size: 0.001 to gas molecules
Examples: Cooking, pesticides, building materials, outdoor pollution
Associated problems: Headaches, dizziness, respiratory illness, constriction of airways, fatigue, eye/nose/throat irritation
Heating and Cooling Systems
When it comes to choosing an air conditioning system that will not only heat and cool effectively but also purify your indoor air, we recommend an AirSmart small duct system. AirSmart’s Indoor Environment System employs a world leading purification process to clean your indoor air. Firstly, its high efficiency filtration traps particles including mould, bacteria, dust, dander and pollen. Then it neutralises bacteria, mould and viruses, and lastly, eliminates odours and volatile organic compounds. This results in up to 97% reduction of particulates and up to 90% reduction in chemical fumes and odours.
There are so many benefits to having an AirSmart small duct air conditioning system in your dwelling.
Best indoor air quality Reduce family and office sickness, eliminate pet odour, sleep soundly and clean less!
Efficient operation AirSmart’s smaller ducts result in up to 50% reduction on operating costs and are up to 300% more efficient than traditional systems.
Minimal grilles AirSmart ducts can be installed in floors, ceilings and between walls without compromising performance or aesthetic.

Are you planning to build a new home in South Australia? Now is the time to think about heating solutions for your home so that you can invest in the right heating system to suit your needs. When it comes to heating your entire home, most people immediately think of ducted air conditioning or some other form of forced air system. We’re here to tell you all about radiant heating and hydronic underfloor heating systems as an alternative to conventional forced air systems.
Hydronic underfloor heating uses radiant heat to warm your home. The picture below shows how radiant heating warms the whole body compared to convection or forced air heating which primarily warms only your upper body. With forced air systems, air moves across ceilings and other surfaces, leading to high thermal losses and additional energy being consumed to make up for these losses. With a radiant floor heating system, however, the temperature of the floor surface is higher than that of the air, resulting in a more consistent and even heat throughout your home.
Reasons to use radiant heating
Comfort – Radiant heating maintains an even temperature with no drafts, hot spots or cold spots. This means you can enjoy fresh air in your home with no dryness or stuffiness. Radiant heating is also silent when in operation.
Safety – There are no exposed flames or hot surfaces, ducts or radiators, or moving parts to worry about when you use a radiant heating system. This makes it incredibly safe for a young family.
Health – Radiant heating is ideal for people with respiratory problems, allergies or asthma because there is no airborne dust or fumes, and no drafts to cause chills.
Convenience – A radiant heating system uses thermostats and time switches to look after the heating system, so you can simply set and forget! They are easy to install when building, extending or renovating, and no floor or wall space is lost. There are also no pilot lights to re-light or wood to collect. Simple, convenient and effective!
Economical – Our radiant heating systems have controllable zones, so it’s possible to have individual zone thermostat control with different temperatures in each zone. Thermal comfort can be achieved at lower air temperatures than conventional forced air systems, making it more economical to run. It’s also virtually maintenance free as there are no moving parts.
How hydronic floor heating works
Hydronic radiant heat uses tubes, water and an energy source of your choosing, making hydronic underfloor heating systems efficient enough to use as a heating solution for your entire home.
Tubes or small pipes beneath the floor are used to circulate heated water throughout the area. As the water flows through the system, the heat is released. Water can be heated in a number of different ways, which means that you’ll have many energy options when choosing hydronic radiant heat:
Kerosene water heater
Gas water heater
Solar water heater
Some underfloor hydronic systems supplement these primary heat sources with solar energy. Choosing a solar-assisted system is environmentally friendly, and it can further reduce your heating costs. The best choice for heating your system depends on the size of your home and where it’s located. We can advise on which method will be the most efficient. A system of pipes channels water from this heating source to the pipes under different rooms of your home, which means that you can set different temperatures for different rooms. In new home installations, the pipes that run through individual rooms are put in place, and a concrete slab is poured over top. Heat from water moving through the pipe transfers into this concrete slab, which then warms the room.
Hydronic heating technology is constantly evolving, especially in regard to the required water temperature needed to reach desired heating levels. Hydronic radiant heat can create temperatures that are much more consistent throughout a home. No more chills walking from your living room to your kitchen! If you want different temperatures in different rooms at different times – such as cooling off your bedroom when it’s time for bed – we can recommend a thermostat that can be programmed to do so.
Efficiency of hydronic underfloor heating
Hydronic radiant heat can be one of the most efficient ways to heat your home. The nature of the system limits the amount of energy that is wasted. In fact, hydronic underfloor systems can reduce your energy costs, which means that they pay for themselves over time. They can also increase the value of your home.
By comparison, forced-air systems can lose so much heat through ducts that their efficiency is reduced by half. In a hydronic system, there’s significantly less heat loss. Several other factors contribute to the efficiency of hydronic heat. Since the heat comes from the floor, it can keep you comfortable at a lower set temperature than would be required for the same comfort from a traditional forced-air system. This method of heat distribution also means that the system doesn’t
have to run for as long to heat up or to maintain the set temperature. It’s especially effective in areas where forced-air heat can’t keep up with your heating needs.
In addition to being installed beneath flooring, hydronic radiant heat systems can also be installed in walls and ceilings, which can help you heat trouble spots in your home.
Hydronic underfloor heating systems create a uniform temperature in your home because they don’t rely on circulating air to provide warmth. This means that even the corners of your favourite rooms will be adequately heated. Additionally, you can use a programmable thermostat to set different temperatures in different rooms or at different times of the day. Programmable thermostats have been associated with both reduced heating costs and increased comfort.
The efficiency of hydronic systems can be further improved by careful design and adequate insulation. We are radiant heating specialists here at Glow, and we can help you create a system that maximises efficiency and keeps your home comfortable all year round.
Are you building a new home or renovating and considering what kind of heating system you will need? Ducted air conditioning and other forced air heating systems are some of the most popular choices for Australian home owners, however, you may like to consider radiant, hydronic or radiator heating for your home.
A radiant heating system comprises either a hydronic system, an underfloor heating system, or heat pump system. The heat either comes through your flooring or via wall panels and units. Radiant heating warms your whole body and not just your upper body; no more cold hands and feet! Many people who have a radiant heating system in their home say they will never go back to a forced air system.
Today we’re showcasing radiator heating. That is, radiator panels that are attached to your walls. Radiators are certainly not what they used to be and have come a long way in design and practicality. Scroll down and you will be amazed at these designer radiators. Not only do they heat your home evenly and safely, they are stylish and varied.
No more drafts, hot spots or cold spots with radiator heating! You can enjoy fresh air in your home without feeling dry or stuffy.
No exposed flames
Radiator heating is completely safe and can be installed in bedrooms for babies and young children. There are no exposed flames or hot surfaces to worry about, and no moving parts of ducts with a radiator heating system.
Ideal for asthma sufferers
Because there is no airborne dust or fumes, radiator heating is ideal for people with respiratory health issues or allergies. Another advantage is that there are no drafts to cause chills.
Set and forget
A radiator heating system uses thermostats and time switches to run, so you can simply set and forget! Radiators can be installed when building, extending or refurbishing, and they are so slim that hardly any floor space is lost. There is hardly any maintenance needed, no pilot lights to reignite or wood to collect. It’s a really simple, convenient and effective form of heating.
Radiator heating systems allow for zone control, just like a ducted air conditioning system does. Individual zone control with different temperatures in each zone is easily achievable. It’s also more economical to run because thermal comfort can be achieved at lower air temperatures than conventional forced air systems. Also, there are no moving parts so it’s virtually maintenance free.
We hope you’ve been inspired by the beautiful radiator heater designs we’ve shown you today. We would love the opportunity to assist you in finding the perfect heating system for your new or existing home. Call us on 8397 6100 or visit one of our showrooms to find out more about radiator heating or any other form of heating. The team at Glow are always happy to help!
Are you renovating your home or building a new home? If you live in Adelaide, wood heaters are one of the best forms of heating for our chilly winters. Not only do they pump out intense heat, they can also be the centrepiece of any room and add both practical and aesthetic value to your home.
Before buying a wood burner, first decide what you want the heater to do. It may help to ask yourself the following questions:
How much heating do I need?
How big an area/ how many rooms do I want to heat?
Will I be using other types of heating?
Is my home well insulated?
Where will the wood come from and how much will it cost?
Once you know the answers to these questions, come and see us at one of our showrooms and we will help you to match the right wood fire to your needs.
What is the best size for me?
It’s important to choose the appropriate size and output for your living area. Whilst the largest heating capacity may seem appealing, the air can easily become stifling if the heater is too large for your space and your room gets too hot too quickly. This also wastes fuel and your stove’s window will typically turn black. On the other hand, if you get the right sized heater for your space, the window of your stove should never turn black and will sustain the fire for 8-10 hours.
Wood heaters come with a low, medium or large heating capacity. This is reflected in the size of the firebox area. If you need to heat just one large room or a small holiday home that you visit only a few times per year, a small wood stove will do. If you plan to heat an entire floor, choose a medium sized wood stove. To heat a moderate to large home or open living area in a cold climate, consider a large wood stove. The majority of wood heater manufacturers provide an indication of square feet or metres the unit will heat.
What is the best type for me?
Freestanding convection wood heaters provide fairly even heat throughout a room and are less likely than radiant heaters to cause burns from direct contact, however, a fireguard is still recommended.
Fan forced wood heaters are usually a convection heater with a 2 or 3 speed blower. They are ideal for larger homes where air movement is a priority.
Freestanding radiant wood heaters emit two thirds radiant heat and one third convection. They have very hot surface temperatures and heat your room by sending out heat in all directions.
Inbuilt wood heaters are built into a heat sensitive structure within a building.
Insert wood heaters are specifically designed to be installed within a masonry fireplace. They are suitable for converting open brick fireplaces and are almost as efficient as freestanding units.
Pellet wood heaters burn compressed wood or biomass pellets to create a source of heat for residential and sometimes industrial spaces. They create a constant flame and require little to no physical adjustments.
What are the best wood heater brands?
We stock some of the best wood heater brands based on performance, design and availability in Adelaide. These are Morso, Regency, Invicta, Stovax, Skantherm, Focus and Hearthstone.
What is the best style for me?
We have one of the largest ranges of wood fires in metropolitan and regional Adelaide to suit every style, taste and budget. Whether your style is modern, traditional, minimalist, shaker, classic or showstopper, we have the right wood fire for you!

The Orphans’ Project
The Orphan’s Project lies at the heart of The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and we are very proud to be involved in this small but important way. The Trust rescues orphaned species across Kenya in order to give them a chance of enjoying life back in the wild when fully grown. They rely on donations to keep the program going. The Trust engages with local people living alongside wildlife in the belief that this reduces human-wildlife conflict. They’re also focused on securing irreplaceable wilderness areas so that animals will always have space to roam.

History & Mission of Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was founded in 1977 by Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick DBE in memory of her late husband, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park. For over 25 years, Kenya-born Daphne Sheldrick lived and worked alongside David raising and successfully rehabilitating many wild species.
Daphne Sheldrick recently passed away in 2018 after a lifetime of involvement with wildlife. She was a recognised international authority on the rearing of wild creatures and was the first person to perfect the milk formula and husbandry needed to successfully raise milk-dependent elephants and rhinos.
Daphne’s daughter Angela ran the Trust alongside her mother for twenty years and continues the mission with passion, supported by her husband Robert Carr-Hartley, their two sons Taru and Roan, and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Team.
Adoption certificate from The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
We are so proud to be involved in the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Orphans’ Project and urge you to get involved in the conservation of wildlife by adopting an orphan elephant, rhino or giraffe for yourself or as a gift. Donate to The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and offer life and hope to an animal in need!
Recently, we have been learning a lot about what makes animals endangered and how they are classified in terms of their conservation status. Assessing conservation status is not simply about the number of individuals remaining, but the overall increase or decrease in the population over time, breeding success rates, and known threats.
Below is the full list of classifications (source: Wikipedia). The official term “threatened” is actually a grouping of three categories: critically endangered, endangered and vulnerable.
• Extinct (EX) – No known living individuals • Extinct in the wild (EW) – Known only to survive in captivity, or as a naturalised population outside its historic range • Critically endangered (CR) – Extremely high risk of extinction in the wild • Endangered (EN) – High risk of extinction in the wild • Vulnerable (VU) – High risk of endangerment in the wild • Near threatened (NT) – Likely to become endangered in the near future • Least concern (LC) – Lowest risk; does not qualify for a higher risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category. • Data deficient (DD) – Not enough data to make an assessment of its risk of extinction • Not evaluated (NE) – Has not yet been evaluated against the criteria.

Adelaide Zoo currently houses and protects many threatened animals. Critically endangered animals at Adelaide Zoo include: Cotton-top tamarin, Orange-bellied parrot, Siamang, Sumatran orangutan, Western swamp tortoise and White-cheeked gibbon.
Endangered animals at Adelaide Zoo are: Australian sea lion, Ghost bat, Golden lion-tamarin, Goodfellow’s tree kangaroo, Malayan tapir, Pygmy hippo, Red panda, Ring-tailed lemur, Sumatran tiger and Tasmanian devil.
There are quite a few vulnerable animals too at Adelaide Zoo, such as: African lion, Aldabra tortoise (more on this special one later!), Asian small-clawed otter, Binturong, Brazilian tapir, Giant panda, Giraffe, Hippopotamus, Hyacinth macaw, Mandrill, Quokka and Rhino iguana.
Recently this vulnerable species at Adelaide Zoo received some very special treatment by way of underfloor heating from Glow! The Aldabra Giant Tortoise is an ectotherm, which means they are cold blooded reptiles that don’t generate their own body heat and depend on their surroundings to regulate body temperature.
Named Aonika, Adelaide Zoo’s gentle giant hatched in September 1976 at Taronga Zoo, arriving at Adelaide Zoo in July 1987. She loves to eat fruit and veggies, especially broccoli, pears and sweet potato. In the wild, Aldabra Tortoises can be found in Seychelles, north of Madagascar. They can grow up to a metre long and have hard shells made up of 59 to 61 bones covered by plates (scutes). They can weigh between 160 to 250kgs! The Aldabra Tortoise is the last of 18 species of tortoise that once flourished on islands of the Indian Ocean. They are currently classified as vulnerable and are protected, however, they do suffer from poaching and loss of traditional habitat.
We feel very privileged to have been involved in such an important and fun project. Have you visited the Aldabra Tortoise enclosure at Adelaide Zoo? Imagine how lovely and warm Aonika will be this winter!

Are you on the lookout for the best pizza dough recipe? This could be it! Here’s a recipe from the Morsø website that makes 4-5 pizzas.
Pizza dough recipe:
¼ litre cold water 20g yeast 1 tsp sugar 300g type ”00” flour or durum flour high in protein. 125g coarse ground semolina or polenta (coarse ground maize flour) 1 tsp salt 1 tsp olive oil
Mix the water, yeast and sugar. The sugar gives the yeast something to live from and brings the dough to life. Then add 150g ”00” flour and 125g semola. Then stir or knead until no lumps remain. Add the salt and oil, stir again and then add the rest of the flour in two stages. If the dough feels too moist, add more ”00″ flour. Now knead for all you’re worth. The dough has to be activated, which is best done by man or girl power. After 10-15 minutes, the dough should be smooth and flexible to the touch.
Make a cut in the dough and check that it is shiny inside. If so, you can relax with a glass of red wine while the dough rises to double size in the fridge. If you’re ready in good time, you can leave it to rise overnight for the best result. But even the shorter rising time will also give you a delicious base.
Take the dough out and cut it into balls of about 160g. Knead the balls by folding into the same point in the ball, leaving a smooth and stretchy surface. The ball should spring back up when you press into it on top. Place the dough balls on a tray and leave them cold (preferably in a refrigerator) for an hour. Take them out so that they reach room temperature. Now they are ready to be rolled or stretched.
