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.

A stormy summer & your dehumidifier

Storm Season

Summer’s here

Wow! What a start to summer.

Heat, rain, storms and humidity; we got the lot! With weather like this it’s time to crank up your dehumidifier. Keep your home dry and you’ll protect your valuables, stop mould and musty odours.

Try running it in your bedroom once a week and feel the difference; no more uncomfortable damp and clammy bedding.

Can’t remember how to get the best out of your dehumidifier? Just check out our FAQs and Operating Tips @ www.ausclimate.com.au/faq.htm

And don’t forget to clean your air filter. Generally, by washing it under a tap once every few months will do the trick. The cleaner the filter, the more efficient your dehumidifier will be.

Cheers,

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

Ausclimate On-Location Update:

The Pines Shopping Centre, Elanora/Gold Coast QLD (Thursday 14/11 – Saturday 16/11)

We’ve had a great time this past week visiting Maroochydore and other areas of the Sunshine Coast. We were particularly delighted to meet Lesley Richards (pictured) and her cute little friend here at Pure Paws in Buderim. Lesley runs Pure Paws which is much more than a just a dog grooming business - "it's a first class natural canine boutique bakery, spa and training centre."

As seen in the picture, this curious pooch was particularly fascinated by the new Dehumidifier. Lesley uses her Ausclimate Dehumidifiers in the shop to dry out the doggy towels, keep mould at bay and assist in keeping away that “wet-dog-smell” that we all know and love!

So next time your giving your pooch a wash, get the Dehumidifier on the job to dry out your towels and prevent any of those musty “wet-dog” smells before they set in. And make sure to check out Pure Paws if your in the area, we’re sure your pooch will thank you for it! (We hear they've even got some lovely doggy birthday cakes for their special day)

Thanks Lesley, look forward to seeing you again next time we’re in town.

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,

Mould, mildew and musty smells - a real health problem

Mould, mildew and musty smells - a real health problem

Ausclimate has received so many enquiries about whether our NWT Dehumidifiers could help with health problems caused by mould in their homes. The answer is yes, they can make a huge difference for so many people. In fact many of our satisfied customers are professionals in the health industry.

How?

Too much moisture in your home is a recipe for mould, mildew and musty smells. Ausclimate Dehumidifiers, often described as "room dryers", can extract excessive moisture and dry your home therefore reducing harmful allergens such as mould and dust mites. If you dry out mould you will kill it!

Below is a testimonial from a recently satisfied customer:

"My husband and I live in the NSW coastal town of Coffs Harbour and our house always felt damp which was affecting my health. I have lung problems including asthma so a friend recommended I should buy a dehumidifier from Ausclimate.We purchased an Ausclimate dehumidifier two weeks ago and already my health has improved dramatically. The house now feels dry and my breathing is so much better. The dehumidifier removed an unbelievable three liters of water in the first five hours from our bedroom. I wish I brought one years ago. When my husband rang Allan from Ausclimate, he was very helpful and made it easy for us to purchase over the phone. I would recommend a dehumidifier from Ausclimate to anyone." (Margaret of Coffs Harbour)

Again always happy to help! For more info, please check out the website at www.ausclimate.com.au or feel free to give us a call any time.

Dehumidifiers & Camping Gear

Dehumidifiers & Camping Gear

Been camping recently or planning your next trip? Make sure to dry out your camping gear with your Dehumidifier before packing it away for your next adventure!

Your Ausclimate Dehumidifier is the most effective way to dry out expensive camping gear, ensuring that there’s no nasty surprises for next time. Without proper moisture extraction of your camping gear after a trip, you could easily open yourself up to moisture damage and mould when rolling out the tents, sleeping bags, air mattresses and even your hiking boots/coats. Common signs include musty smells, the presence of moisture, overall dampness and the growth of unsightly mould and mildew. This not only destroys your expensive camping gear, but also has potential to affect your family’s health if re-used.

Here’s a couple of camping gear drying hints using your Ausclimate Dehumidifier:

  • Bring the camping gear inside the garage or even a spare room within the home
  • Drape everything over a clothes horse/airer, chairs or anything that will raise them off the floor and allow the air to circulate around them * Close the external windows and doors
  • Turn on a ceiling fan or pedestal fan to circulate the air (not essential, but helpful)
  • Turn on your Ausclimate NWT Dehumidifier and allow the Dehumidifier to do what it does best – remove the excess moisture from the room, including the excess moisture from all of your camping gear

The capacity of the Dehumidifier will influence the speed of the drying process. As example:

  • The NWT Small Home Dehumidifier will dry out the camping gear effectively in a room size up to 20 square metres and remove up to 12 litres of moisture per day during the drying process
  • On the other hand the NWT Supreme Home Dehumidifier will dry out the camping gear effectively in a room or garage up to 75 square metres and remove up to 50 litres of moisture per day during the drying process

Get the most out of your camping gear and enjoy your next camping trip!

And as always, if you’re experiencing any similar issues, please feel free to contact Allan or myself for expert advice and custom solutions for all of your moisture problems. Or check out our website at www.ausclimate.com.au

Caravans - moisture is the enemy

Caravans - moisture is the enemy

Warilla Grove Shopping Centre(Wed 2nd to Sat 5th October)

At this time of year, many of us are returning from or planning our next caravan trip. As a caravan enthusiast myself, I thought it a good time to share some tips on how to protect your caravan or motorhome from the often overlooked threat of moisture.

Water leaks, condensation and general dampness can build up on the inside of your caravan especially during winter or summers humid months. It doesn’t take long before mattresses, furnishings, curtains etc get that horrible musty smell followed by unsightly and harmful mould. If moisture is left untreated it can lead to more serious issues resulting in rot and property loss. The most effective and efficient way to stop this is by using an NWT Dehumidifier from Ausclimate.

After returning home from a trip away or before you put your caravan in storage its good practice to dry everything out. It’s amazing how much moisture is absorbed from wet weather, cooking and general everyday use. You should run your Dehumidifier inside the van for around a day or so and then again every few weeks (this can vary depending on the weather and size of Dehumidifier). This will maintain the dryness required to stop any mould or musty smells from returning - protecting the inside of your caravan.

For good air circulation you should prop up your cushions and ensure all mattresses have adequate space for airflow. All internal doors, cupboards and draws should be left open and make sure you clean out the fridge freezer before leaving its door open. If you are unfortunate enough to experience a serious water leak, ensure you dry it out immediately with a Dehumidifier. Ausclimate’s Dehumidifiers are often used in the water damage industry; our models are capable of drying your caravan out to its original condition.

Water leaks, mould or musty smells can have a dramatic effect on the value and longevity of your caravan. Look after your valuable asset by keeping it dry. And as always, if you’re experiencing any similar issues, please feel free to contact Russell or myself for expert advice and custom solutions for all of your moisture problems. Or check out our website at www.ausclimate.com.au
