How to Prepare Your Home For Australia's Sweltering El Niño Summer

What is El Niño?

An El Niño summer is on its way to Australia, but what does that really mean?

El Niño meaning “The Boy” in Spanish, is one-half of a naturally occurring climate phenomenon that disrupts global weather patterns.

The other half of this oscillating duo is called La Niña, and these two swing back and forth every three to seven years on average with neutral periods in between. The dance of El Niño and La Niña is irregular and unpredictable.

El Niño is caused by a weakening or reversal of the Trade Winds over the tropical Pacific Ocean. This results in above-average sea surface temperatures off the coast of Equatorial South America.

The whole phenomenon has a global knock-on effect and can cause extreme weather events.

What does El Niño mean for Australia?

El Niño brings hotter dryer weather to Australia, so we could be in for droughts, bushfires, extreme heat and heatwaves this coming summer.

It’s going to be a long hot one in Australia this year!

On a positive note, El Niño also means fewer tropical cyclones for Australia’s Northern regions.

How do I prepare my home for El Niño?

No matter where you live in Australia, it’s likely going to be a sweltering summer, but the good news is you’ve still got time to prepare.

These are our top tips for preparing your home for the coming summer:

1) Check all your cooling appliances are working properly.
Has your aircon been serviced recently? Are your fridges and freezers all in working order?

2) Stock up on necessary items such as food staples and medications, so that you don’t need to leave the house on particularly hot days.

3) Prepare your pool.

You will be incredibly thankful to own a clean, well-maintained pool this coming summer. There’s nothing like being able to cool off in your own private oasis whenever you please.

If you already have a pool, get informed on proper pool care for heatwaves. Higher temperatures and UV can affect your pool care.

If you don’t have a pool, now is a great time to consider installing one. The coming heatwave will be much easier to bear when you can seek relief in your own luxury pool.

Builders and Architects are Getting Ready for A Busy Season

With enquiries for new pool builds flooding in, pool builders and architects are gearing up for a busy period. Interestingly, the trends for this year are environmentally friendly pool designs featuring natural stone tiles and fully tiled pools.

With so many pool builds going on in preparation for an El Niño summer, it’s vitally important to secure your quality pool tiles and other materials early.

We speak to pool builders in Sydney & Queensland regularly, and they believe this is going to be one of their busiest seasons to date. If you’re planning to install a pool in time for the coming summer heatwave, the pool pros recommend getting in now.

2. Choose high-quality natural stone tiles for your pool surrounds.

Anything produced naturally is inherently more sustainable to manufacture. Not only does a natural stone pool surround look incredible, but it’s also a better choice for an environmentally friendly pool design.
