It’s summertime once again, which means we have to find ways to deal with the summer heat. Depending on where you’re located in Australia, the summer heat can be brutal, especially if you’re not used to experiencing warm weather throughout the year. To account for these higher temperatures, your energy bills may face harsh ramifications as a result of keeping your home cool and you and your household comfortable. 

That’s why we’ve prepared a useful guide that will help to keep your house and your bills cool all summer long.

Consider Portable Air Conditioners

One of the best ways to beat the heat is to use an air conditioner, but economically. Ultimately, the aim of air conditioning is to make you feel comfortable, not frozen cold. Did you know that each degree you set your air-con below 25-27°C increases your overall energy consumption by approximately 5-10%, according to yourhome.gov.au? Additionally, you could try cooling certain areas of the house rather than your entire home to avoid blasting air-cons all throughout the house. Excelsior’s wide range of portable air-cons is perfect for any household looking for a way to stay cool this summer. 

Use a fan when it’s not scorching hot

If it isn’t scorching hot, we suggest using a fan rather than air conditioning. Excelair fans are not only a much more cost-effective way to stay cool but also come in a wide variety of styles to match any interior. 

Boost natural ventilation

Keeping your house cool doesn’t only mean using appliances. Early in the morning or in the evening once it starts to cool, why not ditch technology entirely and boost natural ventilation by choosing windows or door types that can improve airflow? One example is replacing enclosed doors or windows and adding a flyscreen.
