Summer is well and truly underway, and whilst in some parts of the country the warm weather has yet to properly take effect, many places are already feeling the e ffects of the beautiful, albeit sometimes intense, Aussie summer.
With that in mind, here are three tips for keeping your home cool in summer.
Keep indoor/outdoor blinds closed in the day
People often simply forget to close their blinds on the warmest summer days and this, unfortunately, can have a serious heating effect on the home. The direct sun hitting the home’s windows can be a huge cause of heat, facilitating the sun’s warmth and warming the home dramatically. Ensure both indoor and outdoor blinds are closed throughout the hottest days to ensure your house doesn’t overheat.
Keep the home closed throughout the day
As the heat rises throughout the day, it’s important to keep your home closed so that the temperature stays cooler than outside’s temperature. When the day cools down outside, you can open up your home to let in the fresh air that will, in turn, keep your home nice and cool.
You can even use a thermometer system to read both indoor and outdoor temperatures. This way you can tell if the home is cooler than outside and whether or not it is time to open up and let some fresh, cool air into the home.
