3 easy ways to cool your home efficiently

3 easy and climate-friendly ways to stay chill when the temperatures rise.

1 EASY FIXES TO COOL YOUR HOME EFFICIENTLY

Keep out the sun by shutting curtains and blinds. Open doors and windows in different rooms to move air through your home. Fit security latches to leave windows open while you’re out.

2 CREATE SHADE OUTSIDE YOUR HOME

Plant deciduous trees to shade your house in summer. They’ll let sun through when they lose their leaves in winter. Install external window shades – such as blinds, awnings or louvres. Eaves or roof overhangs above north-facing windows block summer sun.

3 USE FANS

Table-top, floor and ceiling fans use a lot less energy than air conditioning. If you have a heat pump, try the fan-only setting with your windows open.

Whether you’re choosing a heating system or a combined heating/cooling solution, our expert team can help you find the right option for your home, lifestyle and budget.
