The summer season is upon us, and we’re looking for easy and effective ways to keep our homes cool without necessarily raising our energy bills.
Here are 5 tips to keep the indoors cool even as the temperatures soar outside.
Invest in blackout blinds: One of the best ways to keep the temperatures within the home under control is to use blackout blinds during the hottest hours of the day. This helps keep both the light and the heat out.
Get your fans to rotate counter-clockwise: Set your fans to rotate counter-clockwise in the summer months. This helps circulate the cooler air across the room and significantly brings down the indoor temperature.
Switch up the bed linen: It’s time to switch to cotton and linen bedding fabrics in the summer months. These fabrics are naturally cooling and easy on the eye. Pick up summer-appropriate colors like lavender and mint green. Use buckwheat pillows in the summer to keep things cool in the bedroom.
Change your method of cooking: Cooking methods like frying generate a lot of heat within the home. For the summer months, it is advisable to opt for cooking methods like grilling or baking to keep the indoor temperature under control.
Keep the doors to unused rooms closed: To maximize the effect of cooling in the home, make sure to keep all the doors to unused rooms closed. This will prevent the cool air from entering the areas where it is not required, and you can keep the house cool without switching on too many cooling appliances.
