Situated right by the Tasman Sea, Central Coast and its suburbs are graced with beautiful beaches and stunning sceneries so it is not hard to figure out why most of the people who live here embrace the outdoors wholeheartedly.
This brings us to outdoor spaces, location is just one of the many things to consider when buying yourself a new clothesline in Central Coast as it can make or break your outdoor clothes drying experience.
Many of us often wave our hands dismissively and tell ourselves: “It’s just a clothesline!” but in all honesty, we think that clotheslines are long term investments so choosing the right one will certainly result in a very rewarding experience.
A reliable and fuss-free clothes drying experience is what you came looking for so we have a few recommendations for you as well as a complete list of the suburbs in Central Coast where we offer convenient installation service.
Finding the Right Spot for Your Clothesline
There are many ways to install a clothesline for a home in Central Coast and it varies from one form factor to another although, it is not a matter of ‘how’ it will be installed but ‘where’. If it isn’t clear enough, one of the most significant elements which affects your clothesline performance is the location.
Things to consider when choosing where to install your clotheslines:
Install under awnings or eaves if possible
Ensure that the area has adequate airflow
Take advantage of the sun as much as possible
Avoid eave vents and other exhaust outlets
Houses in the Central Coast often have outdoor entertaining spaces which face the coastline, it will definitely help a lot if your retractable or folding airlines are situated under the protection of something like an awning because you no longer have to deal with clothesline covers.
Covered outdoor entertaining spaces can dual purpose as drying areas for your clothes, like we have mentioned above, if you have a covered porch or a deck with an awning, you can have a retractable clothesline discreetly installed underneath the canopy, this can even be done underneath soffits/eaves.
This way, you will be able to dry your clothes while protecting them from sudden rainfall or bird excrement at no additional coast whatsoever and you do not have to fuss about leaving your laundry outside on a cloudy day.
If that route is not possible, it is a good idea to find a location for your clothesline where there is a constant breeze to further accelerate the drying of your garments and for a place like Central Coast that should not be an issue.
The relative humidity in Central Coast and its suburbs rarely dip below 60% annually, it can even go as high as 70+% depending on the season so that is something to keep in mind.
If that is the situation outdoors, expect worse conditions indoors if you do not have your aircon up and running all the time.
A good solution to this dilemma is by using a dehumidifier; while the additional energy consumption may irk you initially, you will be surprised to find out how energy efficient newer models are.
On a different note, the Central Coast receives a good amount of sunlight everyday which ranges around 5 to 7 peak sun hours, despite being a very cool and humid region, this area still receives plenty of sunlight that you can use to your advantage.
What to Look for in a Clothesline
The significant advantage of being in Central Coast is—unlike other territories—you can use pretty much any design or form factor of clothesline that will fit your requirements.
However, to make sure that your airer will work as intended or to guarantee a satisfying outcome, we think that there are certain characteristics of an airer that you need to take into account.
Models that cover a wide space is the best for breezy yet humid places like Central Coast, it is cool and sunny all the time too so you will want something that can let your clothes be aired out and soak up all of the heat as much as possible.
Features in a clotheslines best suited for Central Coast NSW:

Like we always say, if you are looking to purchase a clothesline, you must look for a model that has adequate distance between each line, this is what will determine the drying performance of your clothes because the larger the gap is, the more sunlight and breeze reaches the articles in the inner lines.
