Transform your home into a cool oasis as the temperature rises
The high temperatures of summer mean retreating indoors to stay cool is often the best option. Air conditioning is a quick solution to reduce interior temperatures, but there are easy ways you can improve your home to help your air conditioner run more efficiently, which will minimise power consumption.
Look around your home with the following strategies in mind and you may better understand where heat is entering your home and adopt ways to help reduce the problem.
Make the most of air circulation by opening up windows on either side of the house. This creates a cross breeze that drastically reduces heat build-up and brings in the fresh air.
