The season’s heating up – so how can you keep your family cool, calm and collected when the weather’s anything but? It starts with a crack team of home cooling appliances. Cue the latest air conditioners to keep you and your power bills chilled, portable fans to bring the cool to you, health monitoring devices and even genius gadgets to keep fur babies happy and hydrated.
Read on for inspired ways to keep your heatwave health in check in a summer scorcher.
The World Health Organisation suggests 20°C is the ideal temperature for a healthy home – especially for seniors, children or the ill. If you don’t have air conditioning – one of the most effective ways to cool down a room – now is the time to install or upgrade.
The latest models can take the heat off your wallet (as well as your home) with clever human-sensing tech that ensures your unit is not needlessly pumping out cold air when nobody’s there.
“The latest smart, energy-efficient air conditioners can sense when a room’s empty and switch to standby mode, which saves on power and money,” says Scott Bazley, The Good Guys Buyer – Seasonal. “They can also be controlled remotely from wherever you are, so you can get the house cooling on the way home from work.”
For smaller spaces and rental properties, a portable air conditioner or cooler can bring a welcome cool change to your abode.
Looking for year-round comfort? Look for a reverse-cycle air conditioner that cools in summer and heats in winter.

We all know kids are go-go-go, and with great activity comes even greater potential for dehydration. Make it easy for them to drink on the move by creating a hydration station – an easy-access area with glasses and chilled, filtered water.
A benchtop filtered water station can deliver easy H2O, and a workhorse ice-maker can crank out up to 10kg of ice in 24 hours – perfect for hydrating the whole household.
If you’re upgrading your fridge, look for one with an instant ice and water dispenser and you’ll never need to fill a water jug again.
“Some newer models don’t even need to be plumbed in to deliver chilled water whenever it’s needed,” says Peter Simic, The Good Guys buyer – Refrigeration and Laundry. “Instead, the water dispenses from a water tank that needs to be manually filled, and lives inside the fridge itself.”

Heat stress can make your heart beat faster and harder – and that’s not great news for your health. The latest fitness trackers make it easy for kids and adults to monitor their heart rate and take steps to cool down, such as changing into loose clothing and placing a wet washcloth on their neck or forehead, if needed.
As heat can cause a rise in blood pressure, you might be concerned about an elderly relative in a heatwave. If so, a blood pressure monitor is the perfect way to keep an eye on them. Fully automatic, easy to use and with large displays, they can quickly deliver peace of mind on a hot day.

So how do we help the furrier members of the family stay cool? As well as offering pets a breezy, shaded place to rest, it’s worth investing in an automatic water bowl – a clever water fountain that continuously circulates up to 2 litres of fresh water for your pet to drink. Providing a consistent water source throughout the day, it will alert you if the water level gets too low and can even be operated remotely via an app.
The Good Guys has everything you need to keep your family healthy this summer – head in-store or online to find everything from air conditioners to portable fans and coolers and fitness trackers.
