Cool your home naturally with these amazing hacks this summer
Summer heat can be really annoying and especially if you live in a region like North India, this can get even worse. As the global warming is increasing, the rising temperature has become a growing concern worldwide. While in the techno-friendly world, air conditioners and coolers are convenient and relaxing, some natural tips can also help you to keep your home cool, without spending heavy sums on electricity bills.
It is impractical and illogical to keep the ACs and coolers in your home on for the entire day. You can keep your home naturally cool with some amazing and effective hacks. We’ve listed a few for your ready reference. Take a look and get ready for a cooler summer.
Drop the curtains!
The best method of keeping your home cooler is by using the curtains in the right manner. It is recommended to keep the blinds closed during the summer. Keeping the curtains drawn help to keep the heat out of your home. Using thick and dark colored curtains can accelerate the process as it prevents the heat and sunlight from penetrating the curtains. Close the blinds as soon as you wake up and you’ll notice the difference as about 30% of heat enters from the windows.
Water is the savior
TAnother way of cooling your home through curtains is by soaking the hems of the curtains in water for some time. However silly it may sound, but it can really help and work wonders in lowering the temperature of your room. Wet the hems of the curtains and turn the fans on. The water will slowly evaporate and it will produce a cooling breeze as the curtain dries. Try it, we are sure that you’re going to love this trick!
Blow the ice…
No! No! No! You don’t have to play the catch and catch a game with ice, of course not! Let a fan blow the cool breeze arising from the ice! Just place a bowl of ice in front of a table fan and get ready to experience a cool sea breeze at your home. Sounds childish but the effect is really amazing. Just make sure your kids don’t invent some new game out of it!
Sleep tight..… not in summers!
We know the annoying and irritating feeling in the hot, humid summers. You definitely don’t want to cuddle in such weather (unless you have a cold). To ensure that you have a good night sleep in those warm and humid summer nights (without an AC), all you need to do is damp a bed sheet and place it in the refrigerator for some time. Use the same bed sheet as a blanket when you sleep. As the bed sheet dries, the cooling effect produced by the evaporation will keep you relaxed and cool. You can try the same trick with your PJ’s as well!
Use the right light!
With a plenty of options of cool lightings available, be smart enough to choose the right light for your home. It’s the time that you ditch those incandescent lights as they’ll only add to the temperature of your home by producing more heat. Use the LED lights instead. They are much cost-effective and also produce less heat.
Try these simple methods of keeping your home cool without an AC or cooler during summers. We are sure you’re going to love these cheap hacks and will enjoy the cooler summer. Thank us later!
