"Off to a busy start to the HIA Sydney Home Show today.
Chris (pictured) and I got to meet a lot of lovely people on the first day of Sydney's biggest home show. Many were surprised to learn how our range of dehumidifiers can be the solution to their moisture problem at home.
The Sydney Home Show finishes up on Sunday the 31st of May so you still have 2 days left to visit us and take advantage of some great show deals. Next week commencing on Tuesday the 2nd of June through to Sunday 7th June Chris and I will be displaying our full range of dehumidifiers at the Rhodes Waterside Shopping Centre (near Coles).
So if you can't find the time to see us at the home show then pop on down and visit our stand at Rhodes. If you have any moisture related problems at home that’s lead to mould, musty odours or condensation then you may be surprised how easy it can be to solve most these common problems. Always happy to help! Kind Regards"

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.
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!

Recently I spoke to a customer about the humidity problems they were experiencing with their Evaporative Air Conditioner so it prompted me to write this article about how a dehumidifier can help.
Many homes throughout Australia have Evaporative Air Conditioners. These types of air conditioners are very efficient and are an effective way to keep your home cool during the hot dry days of Summer.
The Evaporative Air Conditioner is quite different to the common refrigerant type models. A large fan draws the hot dry air in to the AC unit which is located on the roof. As it draws air in it passes through wet honeycomb type pads which cools the air. The cool air is then ducted into each room of the house.
However… there’s a downside.
Whenever it rains or even when its overcast the Evaporative Air Conditioner struggles to cool the home because the Relative Humidity can soar to as much as 80 - 90% inside. Therefore the home does not feel as cool as it should and the comfort level has become somewhat diminished. The Evaporative AC is then less effective; in fact it can make the indoor climate conditions worse. Everything in your home can start feeling damp and clammy like your bedding, flooring even the clothes in your wardrobes. In some cases it can lead to mould problems throughout your home.
My wife Chris and I spend a lot of time in the NSW city of Wagga Wagga. This lovely city can be very hot and dry during Summer however lately they have experienced thunder storms, rain and high humidity. The Evaporative AC was working overtime until we started running our Ausclimate Dehumidifier. It removed a huge of the moisture/humidity therefore allowing the AC to function much more effectively. At one stage our NWT Large Home Dehumidifier was collecting an amazing 1 litre of water per hour and that was continuously over 2 days. Imagine that much water building up in your home!
If you live in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane in fact anywhere in Australia and you find your Evaporative Air Conditioner is struggling with humidity consider using an NWT Dehumidifier from Ausclimate www.ausclimate.com.au.
We're sure you’ll feel the difference.
Allan & Chris

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.
Ausclimate On-Location Update:
Westfield Kotara Shopping Centre - (Monday 21/10 - Sunday 27/10)
Charlestown Square Shopping Centre - (Monday 28/10 - Sunday 3/11)

See you there!
Warilla Grove Shopping Centre - (Wed 2nd to Sat 5th October)
Ausclimate is on the road again.
Chris and I are visiting the beautiful seaside town Warilla, located south of Wollongong on the stunning NSW South Coast. Call in and have a chat. You'll get the friendliest service and expert qualified advice on any of your home moisture and mould related problems. Plus we're currently offering well over 30% off on all our Dehumidifiers!
Come and see us at the Warilla Grove Shopping Centre.
Recently Chris and I travelled through Riverina in NSW when I received a call from Ryan Dent (pictured) of Wagga Wagga. Ryan was concerned about moisture problems in the rooms on the south side of his home which had become musty, (including the bathroom). He wanted to know if an Ausclimate Dehumidifier could solve this problem.
On our return trip to Sydney we decided to pay Ryan a visit to inspect the area first hand. The musty smell in Ryan's house is actually very typical of many homes in the cooler regions like Wagga Wagga, especially towards the end of winter. With no natural sunlight or warm breezes to help keep the rooms dry, combined with his busy life style whereby his house was locked up most days - there no chance for any air circulation.
Ryan purchased the Medium Home Dehumidifier, the ideal model for his situation. Well, that was over a week ago and we recently received a very happy call from Ryan to say thanks. We were delighted to hear that the Dehumidifier was performing so well the musty smells had already disappeared.
Great to hear that we’ve been able to help out with your moisture problems Ryan! Take care and keep in touch. Hopefully Chris and I can pay beautiful Wagga Wagga another visit in the near future, possibly displaying our range of Ausclimate Dehumidifiers in one of their shopping centers.
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
