Keep cool this summer

The days are getting longer and hotter, which only means one thing, SUMMER IS COMING!

As the temperature rises nobody wants their guests sweating inside a hot stuffy house or room, that’s why it’s important to give them everything they need to beat the heat and stay cool during the warmer months.

Here are some easy tips to keep your property cool this summer:

Get your air-conditioner in good shape

Many of us take our air conditioning units for granted and forget they need tender loving care. The last thing you want is your air conditioning unit breaking down on a scorching 35 degree day, so it’s important to have your AC in tip-top shape for the warmer months.

Your air conditioner should be serviced regularly, whether you do it yourself, or you hire a professional.

What needs to be done? The unit needs to be cleaned thoroughly, including the louvers, air filters and coils. A professional will also check the thermostat, connections, the ducks and drains, and will give it a complete once-over. Please consult your air conditioner manual for full instructions if you DIY.

Check and clean your fans

If your property doesn’t have air conditioning, fans are the next best thing and will bet getting a good workout during the summer months. The blades can get dusty, so give them a good clean, test every speed on the dial, and get rid of any unusual (or irritating) noises before your guests arrive.

Dust off the umbrellas

It’s time to bring out the umbrellas! Whether it’s beside the pool or in the backyard, umbrellas will be a welcome addition to the outdoors over the hot summer months. Unfortunately umbrellas can get dusty and grimy while they’re packed away during winter, so give them a good clean and make sure they are still in good condition and working order.

Pack away the winter woollies

Pack away the winter woollies and pull out your summer bed linen! Those heavy blankets and quilts won’t bee needed as the temperatures rise, instead, throw one of our 100% cotton waffle blankets over the bed for that added bit of comfort this summer! They are just PERFECT for warmer months, breathable and tailor made for the Australian climate.

Restock your pool towels

Do you have a pool? Is your property by the beach? When was the last time you checked the condition of your pool towels? Maybe it’s time for a refresh!

Bath towels aren’t made for the pool or the beach, but our 100% cotton pinstripe towels look good and are highly absorbent and durable. Just perfect!

Stock up on ice – CHEERS!

There’s nothing better than an icy cold drink on a summer’s day, so be prepared and have your freezer stocked up with ice, and some refreshing cold water in the fridge for your guests.

Don’t forget the fur babies

If your property is pet-friendly don’t forget to look after the fur babies. Water bowls scattered around the property, and even a small paddling pool will keep them cool on those super hot days.

Now for a special treat…

If you want to go above and beyond these summer holidays there are so many things you can do for your guests.

How about a fresh local fruit hamper in the fridge, cold mineral water ready for them when they arrive, or some icy poles in the freezer if your property is family friendly.

Here at National Hotel Supplies we love our coffee, so we love the idea of having all the ingredients on-hand for your guests to make their own icy cold plunger coffee! It’s easy to do, all you need is a plunger and a few simple ingredients including sachets of our yummy Café de Sol, Robert Timms, or One Fairtrade plunger coffee!
