How a real banana turned into “The Big Banana”

In 1964 John Landi wanted something to make passing traffic stop at his road side banana stall. He had heard of a “Big Pineapple” in Hawaii and thought that something big would definitely stop traffic. With assistance of 1200 pounds and local engineer, Alan Chapman, who set about designing the giant banana by cutting the best looking banana he could find into 40 pieces and developing plans from which builders could work from, the Big Banana could become a reality.

Builder Alan Harvey started the construction in September 1964 with the work to be completed before Christmas. The biggest banana in the world was officially opened on December 22 that year.

What’s Hiding Under Your Hood?

When you last cleaned your car did you service under the Hood?

When you wash and polish your car you probably also vacuum the inside and clean the windows. How often do you open the hood and provide maintenance and cleaning under the hood, if you are like most people it would be hardly ever.

Sometimes car owners are able to carry out simple maintenance like, topping up fluids, changing or cleaning filters.  Usually a higher level of training, tools and experience are required to maintain critical parts and minimise the risk of damage when servicing.

Your air conditioner is very similar to your car as there are minor maintenance jobs that equipment owners can perform and there are many parts under the hood that require a higher level of training and tools to maintain without causing damage which can incur expensive repair bills.

Licensed Sanitair HVAC Hygienists are professionally trained to clean and sanitise all the hard to get to places and they have specialised equipment and products to make sure the job is done properly and restore your air conditioner to as new condition.

If you have never had your air conditioner professionally cleaned then you could be in for some surprises.

Call Sanitair Today and Breathe Clean Air – Freecall 1800 130 168. We have technicians located across Australia in every state and territory.

Aircon Energy Saving Tips

Simple Aircon Energy Saving Tips

  • Air Con setting:  Set your air conditioner on 25°C and you will save $$$$$. The higher your setting the more money you will save.  Visit the Ergon Energy Calculator and see how much you can save.
  • Insulation: If the room you are trying to cool is not insulated, your air conditioner will have to work harder to cool the room down.  You will have to set your air con on a lower temperature to get the room to the desired temperature.  You may have to set on 20°C to get the indoor temperature to 24°C and this will cost you money $$$
  • Close Doors and Windows:  It goes without saying, close the doors and windows to stop the cool air from escaping and to stop the heat air coming into the room
  • Use the fan:  If you have a ceiling or floor fan use it to move the air around the room.
  • Cleaning your air conditioning: Cleaning the filters alone can save you up to 10% on energy costs.  Having the coils professionally cleaned will save up to 28% on energy costs, call your local Sanitair HVAC Hygienist 1800 130 168.   Not only will you save money but you will improve your indoor air quality.

Your air conditioner temperature impacts your power bills and is key to keeping your energy costs under control.   See the case study below:


However, if your indoor air conditioner coils are blocked with dust, dirt, DNA, pet dander, cooking oils, mould or bacteria it will work harder to cool the room.  If you haven’t had a professional Air conditioning clean on your system in the last 3 years, you are more than likely using more energy than you should.
