One of the best things about living in Australia is basking in the amazing weather. But sometimes the sun dials it up a bit too much, causing your home to become a hotbox of sweat.
Want to stay cool when the temperature starts to rise? Here are some tips to keep in mind when trying to keep your place from getting too hot.
The first, and perhaps most obvious, thing you can do is make sure your place is outfitted with the right equipment to keep you cool. Air conditioners are your best bet if possible. But portable fans can do the trick as well. eBay is home to a great collection of these machines. Consider checking out a Dyson bladeless fan that can keep the breeze flowing quietly and efficiently.
Watching your windows can also keep the heat out. While your blinds aren't cooling agents themselves, blocking the sun's harsh rays from entering your place can help keep it a bit cooler. Unless you're at home enjoying the sunlight, keep your shades or blinds closed to preserve a bit of coolness.
You should also make sure you're using the right types of sheets and pillows on your bed. Go with lightweight cotton sheets and pillows made of breathable latex. While this might not change the temperature of your place, it can help increase your comfort in the warmer months.
Finally, we know it's hot, but cooking outside whenever you can can help you have a bit more control over the temperature inside your place. Running your oven or stove or pulling out the crock pot and having it on blast for hours can contribute to the high temperatures in which you live. Use that great BBQ to keep the heat on the other side of the walls.
There are plenty of things you can do to try to beat the heat in the hotter Australian months. Check out eBay today and see how our solid stable of sellers can help you get your hands on the tools you need.
