Love summer but hate the heat? Here are four ways to keep your home cool in the summer. Fans, windows, light colours, and plants can all help make your house more comfortable this season, so read on for tips on how to use each of these tricks!
Utilising fans to cool down your home isn’t a new concept, however it really is an incredible way to be able to cool down your home without having to spend a lot of money on air conditioning. Having a fan near a window can be great at circulating the cool air around your home, and will do wonders at cooling your home. If you feel like your fan isn’t blowing cool enough air, try putting a bowl of ice behind it, and it will blow cool air throughout your space.
The absolute best way to help keep your home cool this summer is by installing a new set of windows that will increase the thermal efficiency of your home, as well as the airflow. New windows will have better thermal efficiency, which means the cool air in your home will stay in, and the warm air will stay out for much longer. With windows like tilt and turn, you can open them at the top and bottom, which will increase the airflow in your home whilst keeping you and your family safe.
Dark colours will absorb the light and heat up your home, which is why you want to make sure your home is filled with light colours in the summer. You can repaint both your interior and exterior walls a light colour such as white and yellow, which will both look good and cool down your home. You could also change your bedding to a light colour, to aid in cooling you down at night.
Plants have been used to help shade humans for hundreds of years, but did you know that they can also cool down your home? One plant-based solution could be planting trees on your property to add some more shade for your home, however it might take a long time to actually feel the benefits of this. A quicker solution could be to plant vines on your walls, which will absorb the sun and cool down the homes.
