Ideas to Keep Your House Cooler in the Summer

With discomfortingly high temperatures becoming more common due to climate change, finding ways to beat the heat without relying solely on energy-intensive air conditioning is crucial. Here are some tips to keep your home cooler this summer:

Benefit from Fans

Whether its wall fans, ceiling fans or portable fans, they are all effective in working up a breeze to cool down the room. Place fans near windows or doors to draw in cooler air from outside, or use them along with opened windows during the cooler parts of the day.

Window Treatments are Essential

Blinds, shades or drapes, they are all effective in blocking out the summer sun and heat through windows. Light-colored window treatments are particularly effective at reflecting sunlight away from your home.

Shade and Shadows

Keep your home cooler by creating shade around it; install window awnings or grow trees and plants to create natural shadows. Outdoor shading can significantly lower indoor temperatures, especially on the sunny side of your house.

Caulk Air Leaks

Over time, doors and windows can develop gaps and air leaks. Have them sealed by caulking or with weatherstripping and prevent the cooler indoor air from escaping out and hotter outdoor air from seeping in.

Heat-Reflecting Roofs

Consider installing heat reflective roofing with high solar reflectance as it will help lower your home’s indoor temperatures.

Optimize Ventilation

Proper ventilation is essential for promoting airflow and preventing heat buildup in your home. Improve your home’s ventilation system and install exhaust fans especially in the kitchen and bathroom areas where heat and humidity can build up more.

Limit Appliance Use

Appliances like ovens, stoves, and cloth dryers generate heat when in use, contributing to higher indoor temperatures. Avoid using them during peak heat hours.

Stay Hydrated and Dress Appropriately

Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and wear lightweight, breathable clothing to help your body regulate its temperature naturally. Avoid using heavy blankets or bedding at night to prevent overheating while sleeping.

By implementing these ideas, you can keep your house cooler this summer while also reducing your energy consumption and utility bills. Get proactive now to create a cooler and more comfortable indoor environment, while also contributing towards a sustainable lifestyle.
