Home Improvement Tips: Cool Your Home During Summer

Posted on May 27, 2016

In tropical countries, it’s inevitable that the heat of the summer season will get to all of us. Unless, of course, that you plan on doing some home improvement remedies. Summer is upon us and gone are the days of cool breezes and gentle winds. What we can expect is an abundance of hot and sometimes bothering air breezes. Also, with the extra increase in temperature, your home might turn into a toaster in no time. To reduce the chance of your house transforming into a microwave, you should do some home improvements to lessen the hot temperature in your house.

Here are some home improvement tips on how to cool your home during the summer!

1. Ventilation Placement

One of the most common causes of heat inside the house is bad ventilation. By opening most of your windows and turning on the exhausts, the air circulation around the house will be better. Also, by turning on your fan, your high body temperature from the heat will subside. One must take note, however, that you should check the proper placement of ventilation because you might cause unwanted hot and humid air to enter your house. Keep your house tight and secure from hot air and let good ventilation give you a gentle and cool breeze.

2. Air Conditioner Maintenance

One of the main appliances that are used daily during the summer is an air conditioner. As one of the top priorities in one’s summer home, a proper A/C checkup is a requirement. The maintenance check-up is used to get the filters clean, to inspect and handle refrigerant levels, and to know if the fans are functioning excellently. With the right maintenance, your air conditioner will cool your home in no time!

3. Seal Ducts

Try to properly seal all air conditioner ducts and insulate ducts that run through unheated basements, crawl spaces, and attics. These ducts generate unnecessary heat that can clomp all around the house. Sealing it is one of the best approaches to prevent heat build-up.

4. Washing the Walls

One of the best methods of maintaining a good and healthy home is cleaning it. Wash the exteriors to remove dirt, stains, and mildew. You can also do some extra work inside the house; wash the insides to remove dust particles and to give your home a fresh and new feel.
