ENERGY SAVINGS THINK SMART TO KEEP HOME COOL KEY TIPS Ceiling insulation can reduce indoor temperatures by as much as 10C in summer and cut your cooling costs by up to 30 per cent. However, keeping the heat off your house in the first place is even better. Start by shading windows with external blinds, pergolas, or even trees and plants. Each square metre of direct sun on or through windows can be like running a one bar radiator in your home. Leave doors and windows on opposite sides of your home open to take advantage of natural breezes and make the most of cross ventilation. On milder days, consider opting for a fan over the airconditioner. By circulating air around the room, fans can make it feel around 3C cooler, and they cost as little as $5 a year to run. Buy a thermometer to know exactly how warm it is inside a room. With a cool breeze flowing though your home you should be comfortable in low 20C temperatures. THINK smart to keep your house cool and energy efficient. Ausgrid's energy ef- ficiency ex- pert Paul Myors says 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 proper planning and using appliances efficiently. y p y y ver 30 years experience in the building trade.
