There’s nothing worse than feeling hot and sticky in your own home, but keeping cool in the Australian summer can be a real challenge. We’ve listed a few ideas on how to stay cool this summer.
1. Cover Windows That Recieve Direct Sunlight
On hot days, sun comes right through uncovered windows, turning your home into a greenhouse. By covering unprotected windows with external shutters or blinds and internal curtains or blinds, you will block out the sunlight and shield your home from the heat. Keep shaded windows open for natural light and airflow (unless you have the air-conditioning on!).
2. Install Air-Conditioning in the Most Lived In Rooms
We all know that feeling of walking into a cool, air-conditioned space on a hot day – heaven! Air-conditioners work in a similar way to refrigerators, by cooling outside air. There are models available for all space sizes and budgets, so whether you’re looking to cool your whole home, or just one room, an air-conditioning unit may be for you. Nothing cools a space quite as quickly and effectively as an AC. See our Summer Sizzler Special Package 1 with 2 free bonuses, below.
3. Install Ceiling Fans to Keep Air Circulating
Did you know that ceiling fans can make a room up to 5 degrees cooler? Fans work by sucking up warm air to the ceiling, so cool air can settle below. They can also help ventilate your home, and work best when windows are left open. Ceiling fans are much safer than standing fans for children and pets, and are very quiet, so they are perfect for light sleepers. Using a ceiling fan outside in a covered patio area also helps keep hot air out of the inside of your home when you have adjoining doors and windows open. Plus, using a fan in conjunction with an air conditioner is the most cost effective and efficient way of cooling a space quickly as the fan disperses the cool air and you can turn the AC to low or off when the desired temperature is reached and save energy. See our Summer Sizzler Special Package 2 below.
