How Do I Keep My Home Cool In The Hot Australian Summer?

Summer temperatures in Australia’s capital cities regularly exceed 35C with moderate to high humidity, so keeping your home cool is a high priority. This combination of heat and humidity can make your home feel like a sauna and make getting a good night’s sleep difficult. 

Many of our homes and apartments have inadequate ventilation and shade to cool them down. Energy saving measures like draught proofing, double glazing and insulation trap the summer heat like a plastic bag which makes us reliant on air-conditioning. It’s not surprising that cooling can account for up to 50% of home energy usage in Australia. Staying cool and using your air conditioning is draining on your bank accounts, but living in a hot, humid house is a drain on your energy.

    How Can I Ensure My House Cool And Lower My Energy Bills?

    What Are The Benefits Of Installing A Ventilation System?

    In the Aussie summer heat, you will definitely appreciate how a self propelled ventilation system works 24 hours a day to make your home more comfortable by regulating both the temperature and humidity.  

    Hot, humid environments are prone to condensation. Condensation occurs when warm air and cold surfaces combine. This can lead to mould, rotting surfaces, insect infestations and damage to your home’s structure and furniture. A damp home is also bad for your health and increases the risks and severity of asthma, allergies and respiratory issues. Effective ventilation can reduce humidity levels and deliver both financial and health benefit to your family.
