We all know how high the temperatures in Australia can get (even hitting up to 50
°C at its highest), and trying to manage it can be a struggle to say the least. So, we’ve come up with 3 different ways to make the sizzling heat feel a little less sizzling.

Keep Your Fans On

It may sound simple, but fans are pretty important in keeping your home cool and breezy. Even with air conditioning, the temperature can shoot up fast, leaving you a frustrated, sweaty mess. A simple fan is all you need to make sure your house doesn’t become one giant oven. You can get them cheap from any good supermarket, like Woolworths or Costco, but if you have a little extra cash it may be worth investing in a multi-functioning fan. One like the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool not only acts as a fan but also as a heater in Winter and an air purifier, making it a worthwhile investment.

Get Yourself Some Awnings

Fans are great for inside the house, but who wants to spend their day inside when it’s gorgeous outdoors? If you want to spend some time in the garden under the blue sky, getting some awnings in Melbourne is the perfect way to give yourself some shelter from the sweltering sun. There are many variations, such as retractable, folding arm and fixed, so you can choose whatever suits you and your home best. Not only can you choose an awning that is convenient but you can even add a little bit of style to your garden. It’s not hard to get one supplied and installed for you, so this may be the easiest method in keeping yourself cool during the hot Spring and Summer months.

Stock Up on Sunscreen

Even though both fans and awnings are a brilliant way to keep yourself protected from overheating, it’s essential to keep your skin safe too. Making sure to use sunscreen, especially if you’re going outside, is incredibly important in not only stopping you from burning but also to protect yourself against Ultra Violet B (UVB), exposure to which can increase your risk of developing skin cancer. Checking the UV index on the weather forecast will tell you whether sunscreen is needed – usually, if the number is 3 or above, it’s worth applying some as this is when the risk is greater. Making sure to apply it 20 minutes before you leave the house, as well as every couple of hours, is important in keeping you and your skin safe in the sun.

The weather in the hotter months can be a wonderful thing, but also an awful one if not managed properly. Using these 3 techniques for battling the sun, you should be able to enjoy the hot weather without melting or worrying about being protected from the heat. Have fun!
