Top tips to keep your house cool this summer
Keeping your house cool during the summer is a constant struggle.
That’s why we have put together a guide to help keep the heat from getting too much in your home during the hot weather this year.
Shutting the sun out
It may seem nice letting the summer sunshine through your house during the warmer months, but this can actually increase the temperature. We advise keeping sunlight out of your home using blinds, drapes or window shades.
Keeping your body cool
Keeping your body cool during the summer months can be done in many different ways, from sipping on an ice-cold drink to wearing cotton clothing. This will help you feel a lot cooler within your property.
Summer weather is perfect for BBQ’s. Using your oven or stoves during the summer will only make your home a lot hotter. If you’re already overwhelmed by humidity try cooking outdoors. This will keep hot air out of your home, making it a lot more bearable.
When autumn/winter is in full effect, there is nothing cosier than a fleece blanket. They insulate and make you feel quite snuggly. However, in the summer period, there is nothing worse. For the summertime, swap your thick sheets to something more comfortable like cotton. This will freshen up your room as well as allowing your body to breath.
Keeping your fan blowing cool air
During the summer months, many of us rely on a fan. However, fans don’t always work, they often circulate hot air. We have the perfect solution, place your fan on the ground as low as possible and place a large bucket of ice directly in front of the fan. This will help circulate cool air into your property.
So there you have it, our best tips for keeping your home cool in the summer. For more information about our property management services, please contact us on 01482 324010.
