The window solutions for you
The day would be too hot to wide open your windows. The problem is the heat would easily enter your home with the hot breeze as well. For this, avoid opening them during the day but open them after dusk. The environment is cool at that time so you don’t want that cool breeze miss your home. Having thin curtains would also be ideal for summer. Also don’t over load them with more curtains. Thinking of the protection of your home is vital too.
Opening your windows in the night can be ideal for burglars so we recommend you to install grills or shutters. There are many roller shutter installers in your area if you search online. These shutters will protect your home and keep your home from heat and even from extreme weather conditions.
Trapping air in a specific room
If you only want to cool up your living room then its best to close other doors that needs to your rooms and bathrooms. In that way you can trap the cool air in one room instead of letting it to divide to other rooms. This is same method we use when we switch on the AC. If you want to cool other area, for an example your room, you can open the room window and close its door so it doesn’t come to the kitchen. Likewise, be creative when you think to cool your home with the given natural benefits.
Fans are cost effective
Rather than using an AC, fans are very cost effective for your bills and also in purchasing. There are several options in fans; either you buy stand fans or ceiling fans. It’s important that you clean them often because it accumulates a lot of dust and dirt. With this it can lower the amount of air it cools and its speed. Just like you have to clean your AC for good performance, fan cleaning is important but very much easy to do. A ceiling fan will be beneficial in cooling an entire room while the stand fan cools a specific area. If you want to directly cool yourself while you are seated in the couch, a stand fan will do the job for you.
