The love for summer is all hyped up from the vibes of swimming and the flavored lives of mangos and watermelons. But this all thrill of summer becomes pale with the ever scorching heat. The heat just becomes intolerable if you do not carry out the summer hacks at your home. Therefore to enjoy the ever-increasing love for summer some of the simple hacks to cope with summer heat in your house.
The use of air conditioners and room coolers is a good-to-go solution in the hot humid summer months. But they will only want to work if the surroundings match up. Therefore the summer hacks support the system of coolness.
KEEPING OUT SUNLIGHT
The pleasure of natural light entering the room needs to understand the point that it brings heat along with it. The more the sunlight enters your room the less cooling the ac produces and the warmness in the body increases. An easy way to understand is to check the ac performance in your car on a hot sunny day versus a cloudy one. Therefore keep the curtains opened and the blinds shut. Moreover use curtain with a bright-colored curtain to block out most of the heat.
HACKING OF WINDOWS
Sadly, more than three-quarters of that light shining on a normal window pass in as heat. Not only does the summer heat make you warmer but the ultraviolet rays badly affect our skin and the wooden furniture. There are reflective window films in the market claiming to block out about 80% of the heat and 99% of UV radiations. They, therefore, are not only a summer hack but also important to save your skin and wooden items.
CHANGING BED SHEETS REGULARLY
The hack may look a bit weird and insignificant but trust me it creates a considerable change in the room. Just opt for brighter sheets like white-colored that reflect most of the heat and light. Besides, choose the fabric of lightweight as they are airy and omit the thicker materials. Just keep in mind to change the bedsheets habitually.
SHUT DOWN APPLIANCES
It is surprising to note the amount of heat electrical appliances disposed of in the house. In calculation to switching them off when not using avoid using them when convenient. For example, try hand washing the dishes and tumble dry clothes without a dryer. Program your routines accordingly like using the iron after dusk. This hack will cut not only the scorching heat but the electricity too.
MINIMISING KITCHEN WORK
It is obvious to stay away from the kitchen if you cannot stand the test of heat. Besides who wants to get warm in summers by staying in the most burning part of the house. As an alternative choose meals that don’t need to be cooked like salads or sandwiches or cook in the open air especially out on the grills. This will help not only as a hack but also get the extra usage of your grill.
UPGRADATION OF LIGHT BULBS
Just wondering if the hacks are to save ourselves from heat or the electricity because LEDs are the new technology that radiates relatively less energy than the old-fashioned luminescent bulbs. They omit about 90% of the heat and cut out much of the bills.
AIR CONDITIONING FILTERS
Sometimes the air conditioner does not work well enough even with the promising conditions. The problem might not always be outside. At times the ac filter might clog out. It does not do not only warm up the room but also minimizes the air quality and maximizes the bills. So clean up your filters every two weeks as an escape from this hotness.
While there cannot be an air conditioner available now or then, there exist some unorthodox tricks to tackle the heat that way. Although nothing matches the cooling status of an air conditioner, an iced fan comes neck to neck. The set needs an ice cube in front of a stock-still fan. Turn the fan on to enjoy a cool breeze on your couch with the DIY AC that is just made.
Exhaust fans are pretty handy to use and can be installed with great ease. They aid to kick out the warm air outside making room for some fresh air. It is to be noted this is only convenient if the outside temperature is less than the inside temperature.
Be quick in loads of heat. Carry out the hacks that suit best in your house. Simple amendments and some measures can help you enjoy the moments of the season despite the excessive heat. The nifty hacks are all to go with every circumstance of the house. So sit back and enjoy your moment with the bowl of watermelon in your hand in your dream house like at Al Kabeer Town.
