There are lots of ways we can keep our homes cooler and our families more comfortable through hot spells other than cranking the aircon.
Some ideas are:
• Plant more shade trees around your home / property
• Install a white roof or have your roof painted white.
• install shade over windows
• install blinds / curtains to block the sun
• Open windows at night to let the breeze in
• Minimise or avoid cooking inside when it’s hot
• Adding extra insulation in your ceiling
• Using fans to help circulate air
