Summers are here and like always they are being ruthless since the starting. The unforgiving heat, the unending sweat and the constant feeling of fatigue is what Summers are all about. And our only companion in the scorching heat is air conditioner! But you can’t sit with an air conditioner 24*7.
Moreover, to be very honest, air conditioners along with not being pocket-friendly are a threat to environment too. So an extreme use of air conditioners can burn a hole in your pocket and harm the environment to a great extent. But you must be thinking that what other option do we have instead of using air conditioners? Actually, we have many easy ways to keep the house cool in Summers without using ACs! The main idea here is to not let the heat enter your house rather than spending so much to reduce it once it enters! (Yes, we are talking about money spent on AC bills).
We have brought for you some really easy tips and tricks to keep your home cool this summer season!
Focus On Appliances
If you haven’t switched to LEDs yet, then please do it right now! Bulbs create a lot unwanted heat unlike LEDs which do not get heated up at all. And if this reason alone doesn’t satisfy you, then let us tell you that they reduce the electricity bills too! Apart from this, you should turn off your computers and Tvs when you are not using them as they give out a lot of heat.
Give Way To White Linen
Since cotton is your best friend in Summers, make it active in the case of bed-sheets too! Use white cotton bed-sheets for your beds and even cover your sofas with white linen. This is because the materials with which the sofas are made are very thick and heat-absorbing. White fabrics will reflect all the heat and the light colour will also give a cool impression.
Don’t Leave The Refrigerator Door Open
No matter how cool you feel when you open the door of the refrigerator and it makes you feel fresh, it’s actually works in just the opposite way when it comes to cooling your home. The motor which is present in the refrigerator works really hard and in turn a lot of heat is produced. Therefore, don’t leave the door open even by mistake or for a long time.
Just in the same way snow and ocean are able to reflect the Ultra-Violet rays, the white roofs in houses are also able to reflect the heat to give a cool environment. So this summer season, don’t forget to change the colour of your roof to white.
Windows Should Be Open After Sunsets
We all are aware that the only bearable time in summers is the time after sunset, because that time air is a little cooler. You can also open all the internal doors open which were closed because of your ACs! You may find this strange but leave open your cupboards and cabinets open as they absorb a lot of heat in the daytime. But don’t forget to close them as soon as the sun rises the next day.
