Tips On Keeping Cool This Summer Without Incurring A Huge Electricity Bill

As much as we all enjoy long hot summer days it's equally as nice to have a cool home in which to escape from the searing heat should it become too much. However, apart from keeping the air conditioning on all day and running up a huge electricity bill, what other options are there?

We've put together a list of things that you can do to keep the inside of your home cool, so read on to find out more.

Heat from the outside can easily get into your house through cracks and gaps in the external walls, ceiling, and floor, so make sure these are all sealed to prevent that from happening.

If it doesn't pose a security risk then fling open your windows at night and this will cool your house substantially.

Only use cooling systems as and when you need them. This means turning off A/C units when you leave the house and closing doors to rooms which aren't in use.

Close your shutters, curtains, and outdoor window shades to shut out the sun and keep the heat out and the cool in

Make sure that your air conditioning unit is the right size for your room. If it's too small it won't cool down your room and if it's too large it will result in inconsistent temperatures and higher running costs.

Use fans wherever you can instead of air conditioning units. They're much cheaper and they produce a pleasant breeze.

Ideally your air con temperature should be set between 23-26º during the summer months. By lowering the temperature by just one degree it can cut the power you use by as much as 15%. 

Make sure that you invest in a timer or programmable thermostat for your air conditioning so that you come home from work to a cool house without having had the A/c running all day long. 

If the weather forecast predicts a really hot day then turn on your air con before your home gets really hot. 

Finally, remember to dress appropriately to keep cool by wearing natural materials like cotton and linen. 

If you haven't run your A/c units in a while then be sure to check them out before we hit the height of summer. There's nothing worse than your air con not working just when you need it the most.

Great company to deal with - Static are one of the top rated contractors our company uses. I have also used them personally for Airconditioning work at my property. Nathan was very professionally, tidy and informative. Would not hestitate to call them again.

Luke Ehrenberg

Terrific service. Installers came on time, were friendly and efficient, and even cleaned up after themselves !! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company, and will definitely use them again

Anne Hattersley

Jeremy arrived on time, in fact he was a little early, he was clean and well presented in his work uniform and very courteous. He asked a few questions about what our air con was doing, to work out what he needed to do, then got stuck into it. His knowledge and attention to detail was impressive and by the time he was finished, our air con unit looked like it was brand new again. Before the cleaning out of the indoor unit, the fan was hardly blowing any air at all, but once the cleaning was finished and with the unit reassembled, Jeremy turned it on to test everything and the fan was now blowing like a force 10 gale, absolutely brilliant, exactly what we had hoped for, we are now all set for the next summer season. We will absolutely totally get Jeremy back at the end of the next summer season to clean the unit again. Top job we can highly recommend this company.
