Home Living : November 30th 2010
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 30, 2010 HOMELIVING Keep a cool head » ADVERTISING FEATURE Christmas is a time to celebrate with family and friends. In Australia, it's also a time when it's easy to get a little hot and bothered - there's nothing like roast turkey, followed by hot pudding on a sweltering summer day to turn your face as red as Santa's suit and send the internal temperature even higher. To deal with the heat, you can simply crank up the airconditioner, or you can follow advice from EnergyAustralia. To start, limit the amount of heat that gets into your home. A well-designed home uses aspects of ''passive cooling'', including proper insulation, aspect and cross ventilation. Closing windows and doors when there's no cooling breeze and making the most of cross ventilation, helps reduce the need for fans and airconditioners. You can also try shading exterior areas of the house with vine-covered pergolas, awnings and trees, use heavy internal curtains and blinds, as well as reflective tints or darker glass in windows. Fans are the least expensive and most energy-efficient form of active cooling, followed by evaporative coolers and finally airconditioners.
