13 aha! ideas for keeping your home cool this summer
Keeping your home cool in the summer can be a challenge at best. Here we’ve compiled 13 of the best tips for how to make your house cooler and help keep your family cool when the temperature rises.
Close the Blinds
If you have windows that receive direct sunlight at any part of the day, you’ll benefit from keeping the blinds closed or curtains drawn for at least the sunniest part of the day. For rooms on lower floors, try turning your blinds upwards to prevent rays (and heat) from sneaking through.
Apply heat reducing film
With roughly 30% of ambient heat coming into your home through the windows, one quick and easy fix to keep your home cool is to apply a reflective, heat-reducing window film to regulate the temperature. As a bonus, it even works in reverse, keeping more warm air inside during the winter months – and it’s quick and easy to install!
