  • Use overhead or portable fans instead of air conditioners where possible. They are effective and use less energy.
  • Drape a wet sheet over an open doorway. It's nature's air conditioner.
  • Set the thermostat on your cooling between 23 – 260 C. Every degree lower could add 10% to the cooling energy usage charges on your bill.
  • Cool your home naturally. Once the temperature has cooled outside, open windows, and curtains and blinds, to let the cool air in.
  • Change the pads on your evaporative cooler before each summer.
