Ausclimate On-Location:

August 18th to 21st – Melbourne Home Show

We're super excited for a huge week at the gigantic Melbourne Home Show. We are delighted to announce that in conjunction with our appearance at the Home Show, Ausclimate will be featuring a discussion, "Allergens in the home" by accomplished Naturopath and CEO/founder of the Australian College of Environmental StudiesNicole Bijlsma. Nicole is an accomplished Naturopath and Acupuncturist, having lectured at various universities for 12 years. She is the bestselling author of Healthy Home Healthy Family, has published in peer reviewed journals and has written extensively for Body+Soul newspaper. She is regularly consulted by the media to discuss electromagnetic fields, toxic chemicals and sick building syndrome, lecturing in Australia and abroad to integrative GPs about environmental health issues.

We are extremely lucky to have Nicole presenting with us on what we all agree is an extremely important topic. Nicole noted to us that "More people die from breathing outdoor air in Australia, than they do from the road toll. [And, incredibly] Indoor air is 5-10 times more polluted than outdoor air." Nicole will be discussing everyday sources of pollutants in the house and simple methods that people can employ to reduce their exposure.

This talk, presented by Ausclimate will be taking place at 2PM on Sunday at the 'Build, Renovate, Decorate Seminar' Stage at the Melbourne Home Show.

Ausclimate will be at stall Q42 of the Melbourne Home Show from Thursday through Sunday with our complete product range on display; Air Purifiers, Dehumidifiers and our latest Commercial Dehumidifier range. They'll all be there, along with our own expert advice about the right products for the right situation.

So for a dryer, cleaner & healthier indoor climate, stop by, say hello and take advantage of our great Melbourne Homeshow Specials. And be sure not to miss out on Nicole Bijlsma's "Allergens in the home" discussion 2PM on Sunday.

See you there!

Protecting top-notch Guitars with an Ausclimate Dehumidifier

Kallquist Guitars

See us in-person:

June 14th to 26th – Erina Fair Shopping Centre

Of all of the uses for a Dehumidifier, guitars might not be the first on your list, but you may be surprised. We've had quite a bit of interest for our Dehumidifiers from the guitar community of late, looking to protect their pride & joy.

Luke Kallquist of Kallquist Guitars in Indooroopilly, QLD is a traditional Guitar Maker & "Luthier" & is very passionate about the craft. Luke uses his Ausclimate Dehumidifier in the manufacture & followup protection & upkeep of his top-quality guitars.

"Just wanted to say what a great asset to my workshop the Ausclimate NWT medium Dehumidifier is! I am a Luthier and need to keep the workshop at a steady 40-50% RH to be able to keep the timber at it's most stable and to give the finished instruments the best chance at survival once out in the real world and it's fluctuating RH. Thank you to Russell and the Team for all the expertise, I would highly recommend Ausclimate and it's Products to anyone. Thanks again, Happy Pickin"

Erina Crazy Summer

See us in-person:

15th to 28th of Feb – (Erina Fair Shopping Centre, Erina NSW)
15th to 21st of Feb – (Top Ryde City Shopping Centre, Sydney NSW)

Australia is certainly experiencing a crazy summer - boiling summer heat one day, buckets of rain the next! (As you can see here today outside on-location at the Erina Fair Shopping Centre) During this time with these hot & clammy conditions we can really feel the humidity in our homes.

So here’s a timely reminder to get yourself ready for some serious home drying. Stop the mould, stop the dust-mites and protect your clothing, footwear, furnishings and other valuables. There is no better time than now to start up your Ausclimate Dehumidifier to keep everything dry, just remember a few of these moisture issues and maintenance tips:

  • Humidity: above 55%-60% means ideal conditions for mould & dust-mites
  • Do some serious structural drying: set the humidistat at 30% for ‘deep-down drying’ - run the Dehumidifier long enough to get those humidity levels really low!
  • Then make sure to do a follow-up 1-2 weeks later of drying at 30% to remove the surface dampness that accumulates
  • Keep the room/s closed up during the dehumidifying process Open up your wardrobes and cupboards to ensure everything dries out
  • Let the mattresses dry out too – (dust-mites can’t breed in a dry mattress)
  • AND don’t forget to keep your air filter clean too – it’s easy, just vacuum or run under water.

Survive this crazy summer, feel better & get a better night’s sleep; dry out your entire home now. There has never been a better time!

P.S. (Don’t forget your boat, caravan and storage areas, particularly before the winter weather arrives!)

We'll be at Erina till next Sunday with our full range of Dehumidifiers & Air-Purifiers. Come by & say hello!

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,

NOW is the time to dry out your home!

Cyclones Lam and Marcia Head Onshore

The recent weather has been staggering – it’s just so wet! Following Cyclone Marcia, Cyclone Lam and all of the other recent heavy rains, we sincerely wish all of our Ausclimate friends that have been effected a speedy recovery.

Now that the immediate wild weather has passed, it’s high time for a “big-dry” to beat those musty smells and other potentially dangerous moisture-related issues. These musty smells are the first tell-tale signs that we may have excess dampness, mould growth, dust mites and other unhealthy allergens in our homes.

For this reason, we’ve put together this easy how-to list for this “big-dry” for all of our Ausclimate friends.

BIG-dry time!

It should be no surprise - the way to control these unhealthy conditions is at the source – “the moisture”. Common areas of excess moisture include: kitchens, bathrooms, cupboards, walls, windows & ceilings and of course our bedrooms, where we spend about 8 hours/day - under the bed, behind the bedhead, inside wardrobes and behind our other furnishings.

Here’s a few tips:

Wipe down & dry the damp areas – the longer we leave our homes damp, the more likely we are to get moisture damage such as wood rot, as well as mould and those other airborne allergens.

  • Ventilation is the cheapest option – open up the windows and some doors, turn on the ceiling fans and exhaust fans on dry, warm and sunny days.
  • A Dehumidifier is one of the quickest and most efficient options – just close up the moisture-affected room and let it remove all that unwanted moisture from the whole room.

Your Ausclimate dehumidifier will pull all that unwanted moisture straight from the room and into the dehumidifier’s water tank, or we can use the optional drain hose to run the water straight outside.

Extra tips to get improved dehumidifier results:

Push the Ausclimate dehumidifier into the worst affected room

  • Close the external windows
  • Remove the bed linen from the bed - drape the linen over a chair to also dry out the bed linen
  • Pull out the drawers partially – might as well dry the clothes inside the drawers too
  • Open the wardrobe doors and separate footwear & clothing slightly for improved drying
  • Turn on a fan such as ceiling fan for improved air circulation
  • Turn on the Ausclimate dehumidifier and set the humidistat at the lowest level of 30% (electronic models) or continuous/maximum (manual models).
  • Close the door behind you on the way out.

All rooms take varying times to fully dry – depending on seriousness of the moisture issues, size of room and capacity of your dehumidifier. Imagine pulling out 50litres from a room in just 24hours!

As always, if you’d like any extra help & guidance – please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the experts at Ausclimate. We are here to answer any of your questions, particularly initial deep-down drying times and followup drying times - we want you to get the very best from your dehumidifier.

All the best!

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.
