With a start to the month of February, be ready to face a scorching heat of summer by applying simple design ideas at your home. To help beat the heat in a sustainable way, we’ve rounded up a list of things you can do to keep your home cool. From the simple stuff like window shades to delving a bit further in and tuning-up your house, there are plenty of proven ways to cut the AC out of your summer without sweating.
Here are some tips to keep your home cooler during summer:
Get insulated curtains
Go around the house and drape sheets all over the exterior. These exterior curtains will keep the sun’s heat away from your windows but the breeze will be blowing if you wish to keep the windows open.
Let the air in
Having multiple entry and exit points for cross ventilation also do the job. However, the timing is the key. Keep as many windows and ventilators open as possible during early mornings and late evenings. During this time of the day, the air gets in without all the harsh heat from the sun.
Focus on lights
Replace your ordinary lights wit fluorescent bulbs. Though they cost more than average lights, they provide the light effect that is much cooler and saves electricity.
Color your roof
It’s a good idea to paint the roof of your house white in color, as the color helps in keeping the home cooler. Using lighter colors on the walls, furnishings and furniture helps too.
Plants on windows
While you are leaving windows open, also place some plants on the hedge. Window planters are easy to install and help humidify the dry air circulating inside.
Bamboo performs a good job of blocking heat entering your windows, whether they are installed inside the window or on the exterior of the home. It also adds a style statement in your home interior.
