Keeping our homes cool this summer

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
