As the mum of five young children, I know how important it is to have access to a safe outdoor space for your children to play. Being cooped up in the house all day isn't good for the kids or the parents, but you also can't let young kids play in a space that's hazardous. When we bought our new family home, there was a lot of work to do in the garden to make it childproof, and we also wanted to make it a fun place for the kids to play. We erected a new fence, fitted a combination lock on the garden gate, had poisonous plants removed, cordoned off the pool and created a play area complete with swings, a slide and outdoor games. I started this blog to share my DIY gardening tips, and I hope you find it interesting and useful.
With 2013 being the hottest year on record in Australia since 1910, and 2014 being similarly warm, it is more important than ever to ensure your home is cool and comfortable during the summer months. However, due to the rising cost of electricity as well as a generally increased interest in being environmentally friendly, many Australians are unsure of whether the investment in air conditioners is really worth it. If you harbor these concerns, a portable air conditioner may be the perfect solution for you. Here's why:
The size matches the space
Over the last few decades, housing size trends have reversed. Instead of building and buying large outer suburban homes, many Australians are now living in apartments and smaller inner city homes, in an effort to avoid long morning commutes and enjoy the benefits of inner city lifestyles. With a smaller home naturally comes a requirement for a right-sized air conditioner.
The fact that portable air conditioners come in different sizes is a benefit that is often overlooked. Instead of having a large, expensive and non-environmentally friendly wall unit for your small home, you can purchase a portable air-conditioner that is right-sized for your home or apartment.
Overall Energy Efficiency
Although portable air conditioners may not be required to have energy efficiency labels, they can still be incredibly energy efficient. There are two main reasons for their energy efficiency.
Similarly, from an energy perspective you can also move your portable air conditioner from home to home, which is especially valuable if you are a renter or have a holiday home. The portability of the air conditioner will ensure even greater electricity savings and make all of your homes as energy efficient as possible.
From a cost, energy and environmental perspective, a portable air conditioner from companies like DACS Air Conditioning & Electrical Services can provide the ultimate solution this summer.Share
