7 quick and simple hacks to keep your home cool this summer
It’s summer time again and temperatures are only going to climb higher. While there’s not much you can do about the rest of the places you frequent – like the office or grocery store or parks and other public places, you can certainly ensure that your home becomes cooler without great effort or inflated electricity bills.
1. Filter-in the sunlight and ventilation
The most obvious reason for heat at home in the summers is the temperature outside. So, block it out, to the extent that you feel will make the house comfortable. Draw the blinds in rooms that receive harsh and direct sunlight. You could even spray these with water to ensure that it keeps the heat out. Keeping potted plants at strategic locations near windows and entrances to the home also assists you in your battle against the heat.
2. Cooling fragrances
Soak towels in chilled water, scented with rose or jasmine or any other fragrance that you fancy. Then leave these coiled up in decorative porcelain or crystal bowls around the house. The evaporating water will cool down the room and the fragrance wafting around your home will make it feel still cooler.
3. Cucumber slumber
While literally putting slices of cucumber on your eyelids while you nap will ensue that your eyes get cooled and destressed. Here’s something you can do to give the rest of your body a similar feeling: Put your sheets in the freezer (in a ziplock bag, of course, to pre-empt odours of food seeping in) for a couple of hours before you go to bed. Then spread them over your mattresses and cover with them too. This will ensure that you drift into a cucumber slumber.
4. Rock in a hammock
Another way to ensure that you remain cool all night long is to set up a hammock in your bedroom and use it instead of your bed. This will allow your body to dispel its heat faster.
When you come in from the sun and are bursting with heat, there’s nothing like a chaotic onslaught of breeze to cool you off. You can do this by placing Finolex Table Fans all around you in such a way that they all fling breeze at you from different directions. Finolex Fans will not do any harm to your body as it will not involve a sudden temperature change, it will do no harm to your wallet either as Finolex Fans consume much less electricity than an air conditioner or an air cooler. Finolex Table Fans and Finolex Ceiling Fans are not at all expensive when compared to other Fans in the market.
