Home Improvement: Tips to Make You Feel Cooler at Home
Creating natural air currents, hydration or using awnings and fans can reduce the heat inside your home. If during summer we'll be over 30 degrees, here are some tips to make you feel cooler at home.
Use Awnings and Curtains
It is advisable to use awnings at times of greatest irradiation and, at other times, use curtains and blinds. Early in the morning, open your windows for 10 minutes to ventilate your house. The air is cooler during this time.
Clear, whitewashed walls reflect heat. Therefore, using light colors helps to keep you more relaxed at home.
The ceiling fans should be fixed so that they turn to the left because that way they will pull the hot air towards the roof. In the case of standing fans, they must be set so that they expel the air out during the day and the other way around at night.
The windows through which air will exit must be fully opened. They should face directly into the street, where air movement is the greatest. The windows through which the air enters should be opened only a little, they are those that face interior patios.
And avoid using the oven and television on scorching days, the environment will be cooler.
