How To Survive A Melbourne Winter

Melbourne’s cold and wet winters can be tough to survive, but some tips can help make the season a bit more bearable. Whether it’s your first Melbourne winter or you have been in the city all your life, here are some ideas for how to stay warm and dry during the colder months:

1. Layer up. Don’t just wear one thick coat when you go out instead, layer up with multiple layers. Wearing a base layer of warm clothing, like a turtleneck or thermal top, and then adding an extra layer or two on top will keep you warm and toasty in the winter months. Too often, people just put on one heavy coat and then find themselves freezing.

2. Invest in some good boots and a rainproof coat. In Melbourne, rainy days are just as bad as cold days – so make sure to buy some waterproof boots and a rain-proof coat (preferably one with a hood) before the winter months set in. That way, you’ll be prepared for walking in the rain and snow!

3. Don’t forget your accessories. Scarves, hats, and gloves can be a great way to protect yourself from the cold. Opt for accessories made of natural materials like wool or cashmere – these fabrics are great for trapping body heat.

4. Install insulation in your home. Make sure to insulate your windows and doors, as this can make a huge difference in keeping warm air inside during the winter months.

5. Consider investing in a heating system – electric, gas or wood fires are all popular options to keep you warm during the winter months.

6. Keep an eye on the weather forecast. Melbourne winters can be unpredictable so it pays to keep an eye on the forecast and plan your activities accordingly.

7. Get outside. It may seem counterintuitive, but getting outside during the winter months can help keep your body temperature regulated and give you a much-needed vitamin D boost.

8. Stock up on winter-friendly food. Soups, stews, and slow-cooked meals are all delicious options for keeping warm and feeling full during the colder months.

9. Drink plenty of hot drinks. Tea, coffee, and hot chocolate; all are superb options for keeping warm when the temperature drops. Try to avoid sugary drinks and opt for herbal teas instead to help keep your immune system in check.

Gas Ducted Heating

We’ve already touched on it, but investing in a good heating system is key to surviving the Melbourne winter. Gas-ducted heating systems from Smoel Climate Control are one of the best ways to keep your home warm and cozy. With options ranging from low-cost, single-room installations to full home systems, you can find the perfect heating solution for your lifestyle and budget.

How does gas-ducted heating work? Simply put, a fan sucks cool air from the outside and pumps it through ducts to your home. The gas burner heats the air as it passes through, and the warm air is then forced out of vents in each room. This efficient and economical way of heating your home will make a huge difference in your comfort and well-being during the cold months.
