With summer here, keeping your home cool while not running up a massive electricity bill can be tricky.
There is a way to naturally cool your home and save money on electricity bills.
Edmonds’ Odyssey home cooling system has been recognised by the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) for its contribution to sustainability.
If you’re planning on doing some home renovation over summer, then consider adding an Odyssey into the mix. It’s cheap to run, making it a smart investment.
The Odyssey requires very little energy input and reduces your reliance on air conditioning, so overall, less energy is used when cooling or heating your home. Odyssey uses the science of air exchange to cool or heat your home.
Here’s an interesting fact: the typical Australian home has around 220 tonnes of mass, which acts like a giant battery soaking up heat during the day and releasing it slowly overnight, when the temperatures are cooler.
When we get a run of hot days, your house has no time to cool down. In fact, tests by Edmonds engineers show that after two consecutive hot days, the internal temperature can be reduced by 50 C with the use of Odyssey – all with out turning on an air conditioner.
An Odyssey unit has the ability to replace all the air four to five times an hour in a 150m2 home.
How does it work?
Odyssey reacts to temperature variances inside and outside your home, which triggers the system to remove the heat from your living space and replace it with cooler, fresher external air. When you wake up in morning the entire structure of the house has been cooled ready for the next day.
During the day, when roof temperatures are higher than 450 C, Odyssey switches to roof cool mode to exhaust the hot air from your roof space and reduce the heat soaking through your ceiling.
Odyssey is science of building combined with the natural environment, for your increased comfort and savings.
Think cool, think clever and use science to cool your home this summer.
