Preparing for Summer in Western Australia

Homeowners will find it much easier to handle the upcoming season by taking a few simple steps to prepare. This preparation will help you take the season in stride and keep cool at the same time. Air conditioners in Perth Western Australia are likely to work overtime, so schedule a maintenance visit today to beat the heat before it begins.

Preparing Your Western Australian Home for Hot Summer Temperatures

Perth WA residents and other city dwellers are familiar with the need to stay cool at home. There are few things you can do to prepare your home and your cooling appliances for the changing seasonal demands. Try these tips:

  • Remove fans from storage and clean them before using for the first time. If possible, remove the screen covering the blades and wipe it with a damp cloth. Wipe the blades, as well. Finish by replacing and securing the screen.
  • Purchase a few extra ice cube trays so you can have plenty of ice on hand for beverages. This will help you stay cool naturally.
  • Install reflective coating on your windows. This will prevent harsh UV radiation and heat from entering your house. Sheets of reflective coating can be purchased at hardware shops and home improvement stores.
  • Call Core Air for a maintenance service visit. Air conditioners in Perth will work more reliably thanks to a little routine care.

Is Your Air Conditioner Up to the Challenge?

Like all appliances, your air conditioner will eventually wear out and cease performing as reliably as it did when you first bought it. Though it may continue blowing air, the appliance may simply not have the cooling capacity that it once did. Additionally, older air conditioners are not as energy efficient as new models, so they can cost more to operate. If your air conditioner is not meeting your needs, talk with a Core Air representative. A quick fix may be all that is required to restore its function. Just give us a call to learn more.
