It's hot! Ways to cool down
At this time of year, many Australians are experiencing extremes of summer heat.
Sometimes, indoor temperatures become oppressive, so we turn to cooling to provide relief.
Refrigerated air conditioning provides an effective way to lower the internal temperature and also humidity. For those people with allergies, look for models that filter the air and have your systems cleaned to maintain efficiency.
Evaporative cooling can be effective in dry areas, but should be avoided in other areas as it is not only less effective in more humid areas, it increases humidity, which can encourage mould.
Heat recovery and other ventilation systems can assist by moving air around and even a fan will help, although filtration is generally not a feature of fans (except for the Dyson).
Opening windows when it’s cooler and dryer outside will help, but if you’re sensitive to pollen, mould or gasses (and near a road), consider the consequences.
Good insulation helps a lot!
