In Your Words

Just wanted to take a special moment to share this well-worded & comprehensive review of our Large 35 Litre/Day Dehumidifier by the lovely Michellina on her wonderful website at the-labrinth.com She has also shared some heartwarming words about how Ausclimate has helped with her chemical sensitivities & mould allergies on the AESSRA forum: http://www.aessra.org

“My dehumidifier has worked like a dream: my mould allergies cause me to wake up congested, dry eyed and with horrid headaches. After two days I’ve woken up clear and refreshed. I can’t believe how good it works, just by keeping the humidity down…”

Thanks so much Michellina, it really makes what we do worthwhile when we hear about our Ausclimate products making such a difference to peoples lives.

This Large 35L model, as well as the rest of our Dehumidifier range is available for purchase right now at ausclimate.com.au

Cheers,

Wet weather camping & your dehumidifier

Camping Trip Dehumidifier

It’s that time of the year again & we’ve already experienced our share of extreme wet weather, but we’re determined not to let it take away from our holidays!

Last week my son, Cameron (pictured) got his fill of rain on a QLD camping trip. Lucky for him, upon his return he made great use of his Ausclimate Dehumidifier; drying out both his 4-wheel drive & his camping gear. This important step eliminated the moisture & prevented any potential nasty surprises for next time. He’s already excited for his next trip tomorrow!

Make sure to follow suit with your Dehumidifier next time to get the most out of your camping gear and enjoy your next camping trip. Please refer to our previous camping gear post for step-by-step instructions. And as always if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Allan or myself for expert advice and custom solutions for all of your moisture problems.

Bedroom Mattress Dehumidifier Drying Guide

Bedroom Mattress Dehumidifier Drying Guide

Get rid of mould and dust mites from your mattress with your Ausclimate Dehumidifier!

We spend around a third of our lives in bed, and if you examine that bed closely, you may be unpleasantly surprised at who your sleeping with! Dust mites and other various microscopic nasties are likely breeding in your mattress all year round and can cause skin allergies, general allergies irritations and various breathing issues.

But luckily, there is an easy solution; Your DEHUMIDIFIER!

My partner, Joanne (pictured) always tells people how amazed she was the first time she saw about how much moisture the Dehumidifier was able to extract from the families mattresses at home.

Follow these simple instructions to dry out your mattress, carpet and inside of your wardrobe, reducing the moisture levels, therefore eliminating their optimal breeding conditions for these “nasties”. Through regular use, you’ll sleep better knowing that dust mites won’t be there to affect you or your loved ones anymore.

Some easy to follow tips to dry out your bedroom:

1. Place the Ausclimate Dehumidifier in a central location within the room
2. Remove the bed linen to fully expose the mattress
3. Drape the pillows over a clothes airer (optional)
4. Pull the mattress away from the wall, about 20cms
5. Prop up the mattress on its side (optional)
6. Close the windows
7. Turn on the ceiling fan or other fan/s for additional air circulation (optional)
8. Set your Ausclimate Dehumidifier’s humidistat control to 30% for electronic models or ‘continuous’ for the smaller 12L/Day models
9. Close the door behind you and let your Dehumidifier do its magic!

(Repeat this process every couple of months or during times of high rainfall/humidity)

And as always, if you have any questions, specific moisture issues or water-damage restoration questions, please feel free to contact Allan or myself for expert advice. We’re always here to help! Ausclimate Contact Page

Visiting with Noel

This is Noel of Brisbane QLD. We recently had the privilege of catching up with Noel to find out all about his rather interesting use of his Ausclimate Dehumidifier. Noel’s lifelong passion for Entomology (the study of insects) has resulted in an amazing insect collection that he is very proud of. He keeps this collection in great condition by controlling the room’s humidity levels with regular use of his Dehumidifier.

We’ll have more about Noel’s fascinating story in the coming weeks. Thanks Noel!

And as always, if you have any questions about moisture control in your home, please feel free to contact Allan or myself for expert advice and custom solutions for all of your moisture problems. Check out our website at www.ausclimate.com.au

Get more out of your Air Conditioner with a Dehumidifier!

Get more out of your Air Conditioner with a Dehumidifier!

Ausclimate On-Location Update:
Charlestown Square Shopping Centre, Charlestown NSW(Monday 28/10 – Sunday 3/11)

It feels like summer already and our air conditioners will be working overtime in the coming months. Did you know that in rooms with high humidity, you can use your Dehumidifier in conjunction with your air-con to improve the comfort level of your rooms more effectively?

Air conditioners have to work a lot harder when they are trying to reduce room temperature as well as lowering humidity. By reducing your humidity level with your Ausclimate Dehumidifier, the air conditioner’s thermostat can be set higher, therefore running less while still maintaining an ideal comfort level & perhaps most importantly, reducing air-con running costs!

Next time on a hot, steamy day get more out of your air conditioner AND reduce your running costs by trying out this handy tip from Ausclimate.

Cheers,

Ausclimate On-Location Update:

Westfield Kotara Shopping Centre – (Monday 21/10 – Sunday 27/10)

Charlestown Square Shopping Centre – (Monday 28/10 – Sunday 3/11)

While in Newcastle this week Chris and I have experienced firsthand the extreme hot and windy weather conditions that had fires flaring up all over NSW. I snapped this shot looking across Lake Macquarie towards Dudley and Redhead. The fire had flared up again on Wednesday afternoon after Tuesday’s awful conditions.

Ausclimate wish all the residents of Newcastle and all affected areas of NSW to stay safe and be vigilant during these unfortunate and dangerous conditions.
