Knowing what to do to keep your evaporative air conditioner safe from fire can help save your property!
If you live near bushland and have a roof mounted evaporative air conditioning unit, your home may be at risk from bushfire ember attack.
To prevent embers entering your evaporative air conditioning unit and to protect your home from the effect of bushfires, DFES recommends that you install ember protection screens.
