Home Living : November 2nd 2010
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 2, 2010 How to keep a cool head » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING There are many ways to stay cool this summer without burning a hole in your pocket. EnergyAustralia's energy-efficiency expert Paul Myors said there were simple steps you could take to reduce your summer energy bill. A four-person household can cut up to 10 per cent off their electricity bill and up to one tonne of CO2 from household emissions, by planning ahead and using appliances efficiently. There are various ways to keep a home cool and comfortable before turning on the airconditioner. Take advantage of natural breezes by leaving doors and windows on opposite sides of your home open to make the most of cross ventilation. Keep the sun and its heat off your house by using external blinds, trees, vines and pergolas over windows to keep the temperature down inside the home. Ceiling insulation can reduce indoor temperatures by as much as 10˚C in summer and cut cooling costs by up to 30 per cent. Remember, fans are cheap to buy and run. They help circulate cool air around the room and cost as little as $5 a year to run. That is kinder on your energy bill than an airconditioner, which can add about $250 to your annual energy bill. If you have an airconditioner, set the temperature to between 23˚C and 26˚C for maximum efficiency. Running costs can increase by up to 10 per cent each time you lower the temperature by one degree.
