It's getting hot...like really hot. Depending on where you live in Australia, some of you will know what we're talking about. Heatwave conditions have been seen in some parts of the country.
Some will have the benefit of living in a property that has air conditioning, however loads of others will not have that luxury and will have probably spent the weekend searching high and low for a decent unit.
Well, Aldi Australia will soon be selling a portable air conditioner that you can control with your smartphone.
The $349 price tag might set some people off, but can you really put a price on comfort? Yes you can and it will be $349 dollarydoos thank you very much.
Aldi will be flogging the 2.7kW unit during its Special Buys program on Saturday December 12 and it comes with some juicy features.
It's a three in one device that can cool, has a fan and also acts as a dehumidifier. While it has a remote control, it also works with Google Assistant, meaning you should be able to turn it on if you're on your way home and want to walk into blissful heaven and not stuffy hell.
There's also an LED display, removable filter, 24-hour timer and it comes with four wheels so you can move it from room to room. With these bad boys, you just need to make sure the snorkel can connect to somewhere (preferably outside) it can suck air from.
The weather over the weekend broke records in New South Wales and South Australia. Yeah - it was that hot.
Andamooka in outback South Australia saw the mercury rise to an eye-watering 48 degrees Celsius on Saturday (28 November), which broke the 47.9C record for hottest November day in South Australia notched at Tarcoola on November 30, 1993.
The same was seen next door in New South Wales, where 46.9C was recorded at Smithville near the South Australian border. The previous record was 46.8C at Wanaaring on November 20, 2009.
The Ouyen weather station in Victoria equalled its own state record of 45.8C.
So, if you're wanting to avoid sweltering and effectively melting under the sun and hot wind, an Aldi portable air conditioning unit wouldn't be such a terrible idea, especially if we're only at the start of summer.
