Posted on Wednesday, November 18, 2015


  • Drink plenty of water – avoid caffeine and alcohol
  • spend time in cool places
  • keep out of the sun. If you have to go outside, go in the early morning or late evening and stay in the shade

  • always use plenty of sunscreen
  • don’t do a lot of exercise outside when it is very hot
  • to help you sleep use a water spray mister on your face and body
  • try to stay inside with a fan or air conditioner on

Babies and young children

  • Babies and young children need watching carefully when it is hot as they can get sick very quickly
  • cars can get dangerously hot – never leave babies, young children or pets alone in a car even if the air conditioning is on
  • if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should drink more water than usual
  • always wear shoes outside on hot days – the ground can easily burn the feet of babies or young children

Older people

  • Check on older people at least twice every day especially if they live alone
  • make sure older people are using their air conditioning when it is hot – always check the setting is on ‘cool’

People with physical or mental health conditions

  • Keep taking any prescribed medicine every day at the same time as you normally do, even if you feel unwell because of the heat

Your home

  • Keep your home cool by closing curtains, blinds and windows during the day
  • if it is safe, open windows at night to let cool air in
  • wear as little clothing as possible when in your own home to keep cool
  • bacteria can grow very quickly on food in hot weather and make you ill – keep all fresh food in the fridge
  • animals can suffer and even die on very hot days so keep them in the house or make sure they have shade in the garden and always leave them plenty of water

Help is available

If you think you are ill:

  • speak to your local chemist/pharmacist or call your GP
  • older people can register with the Red Cross and a volunteer will call 3 times a day to check if they are ok. Register by calling 1800 188 071
  • if you are very sick, go to your nearest hospital or call 000 for an ambulance

The temp is heading north

Posted on Thursday, November 12, 2015

 

There is much talk about Australia being affected by the El Neno but does this mean for you.

It could mean that we are heading in for a long hot summer. This means hotter than normal days and nights.

We are all aware that climate change is a buzz word and there are those who will argue weather or not it’s real.

There is little doubt that weather patterns are changing. Droughts in Queensland and Northern NSW followed by extensive flooding, these are not what one expects.

The recent wild storms across SA dropped over 36mm in Sedan within an hour and Cleve received 61mm in 24 hours.

A tornado was spotted near Murray Bridge a common sight in parts of the US but certainly not the norm for SA.

Apart from trying to reduce our use of carbon there isn’t a lot that the average South Australians can do except endure. Many of us are fortunate to live

In air conditioned homes, work in air conditioned environments and drive air conditioned cars however unfortunately all these emit carbon in one form or another.

The type of air conditioning you use in your home will have an effect on the amount of carbon you emit. Evaporative air cooling units are far more environmentally friendly that Refrigerated Recycled Cycled Systems and Seeley International as SA based manufacturer are leaders and innovators when it comes to Evaporative Air Conditioning systems.

If do choose a Refrigerated Recycled Cycled System then select one that uses less power. Top brands like Panasonic produce systems Ducted Refrigerated Air Conditioning that more efficient and therefore are less of a drain on power.

All major electrical items carry an energy star rating label. Gas Works are air conditioning experts and can advice you on the best system to suit your home.

Keeping your Cool in the Adelaide heat

Posted on Thursday, February 19, 2015

 

During February, It’s not uncommon for Adelaide to experience periods of extreme heat and a consequent high demand for Airconditioning.

This sudden rise in the use of Air Conditioners can put a lot of demand on the power grid and heightens the chances of a power outage.

During a heatwave, it’s very important to understand the associated risks and to keep an eye out for those who may be especially vulnerable.

For people who don’t have home Air-Conditioning here are a few simple things you can do to help cope.

  • Stay hydrated and have plenty of drinking water available
  • Keep the curtains and blinds drawn from early in the morning
  • Ensure you have a battery operated personal fan in case of power failure
  • Visit an air conditioned shopping mall or library, but be sure to travel in the cool parts of the day
  • Keep in contact with Family, Friends and Neighbours

For other practical ideas, visit the SA Health website for more information or contact the Emergency Management Unit.


Choosing the right Air Conditioner


For some people, the cost of electricity to run their home air-conditioning is concern. It’s important to note that there are many different options to choose from that help to dramatically reduce these costs.

Modern Evaporative air conditioners such as the Braemar Super Cool now incorporate highly sophisticated technology that has dramatically reduced energy usage and made them very affordable to run. This type of air-con is very well suited to Adelaide’s hot yet dry climate. It is also a very healthy option as it continuously blows fresh cool air through the house as opposed to recirculating.
