If you’ve decided to get air conditioning to help you cope with the heat of summer, a split system air conditioning unit might be just what the doctor ordered. For a start, it is easy to install in a home that is already built and it is reasonably priced. You can choose between cheaper models and more expensive ones, depending on your budget and needs.

If you live in a small flat, you wouldn’t need to have a large one, so the cost would be moderate. A larger home may need to have a larger model to cool it more effectively. There are many different models to choose from and within each brand, you get different sizes, so there is sure to be something that suits you with the wide range of units available.

Getting Rid of Kitchen and Bathroom Smells

Is there a bad odour coming from your sink? Does it seem stronger after washing the dishes? What about at different times through the day? Not only is a stinky sink unpleasant, it can also affect the health of your family. The fastest and easiest way to attend to the problem is by calling your local plumber.

The reasons your sink smells

When you wash your dishes, pots, pans and cutlery, food debris is being flushed down the sink. Regardless of what’s on your dishes, and even though you may have scraped leftovers into the garbage, you still get grease, vegie scraps and fat residue. The water just takes it from the dishes into your drain. This can cause many future problems.

Your drain can be clogged by particles and food scraps. When you wash fats into the drain, they solidify once the water turns cold. Fat just sticks to the sides of the drain pipe and whatever is in it starts to rot. It’s not only the drain pipe, but blockages occur in the trap as well.

How to Get a Cooler Courtyard

Many homes have a courtyard area surrounded by the brick walls or other homes or by a high fence for privacy. Often, it is the only space the residents have to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. Unfortunately, in a hot climate the courtyard is often too hot to sit in, or even grow plants in. According to the experts Shade Sails Perth, one way to make it cooler is by installing shade sails.Shade Sails

Sails make a pleasant shady area for everyone to enjoy and they screen out around 98% of those harmful UV rays.  And because they are up high there is enough room that the breeze can get underneath them and help to cool the area even more.  Instead of having the hot sunlight pouring down into your confined space, there will be shade, so you’ll get much more use from this small alfresco area.
