NUS study: In response to heat, the more affluent use air-conditioners; low-income households use water

National University of Singapore

Results from a study, conducted by Associate Professor Alberto Salvo from the National University of Singapore, have revealed that Singapore households from different socioeconomic groups vary significantly in their use of water and electricity for the relief of heat. The findings suggest that water provides heat relief for lower-income households while demand for electricity increases among the more affluent, likely through the use of air-conditioning, when temperatures rise. Results from the study could provide insights on how other urban populations in tropical Asian cities will respond as incomes rise and the climate warms.
