Time-Tested, Low-Tech Ways to Cool a Home

August 2014
 

While plenty of homeowners use air conditioning to keep their homes cool during the summer months, there are many other time tested and cost efficient ways to remain comfortable. Let's take a look at some of the best options to cool off through the end of summer and the early fall.

Block Out The Sun

If you have any spare time and some discretionary income, do yourself a favor by planting trees all around your house. Tall trees with leaves will help to block out the harsh sun so that its rays don't reach your living space. Be sure to pick out deciduous trees that are capable of shedding their leaves when the temperatures drop in the fall and winter. This way, the sun's rays will be able to reach your house when you need added warmth.

Cool Off Your Bedding

As soon as you wake up in the morning, remove your bedspread and sheets and hang them in the coolest part of your house. For most homeowners, the coldest part of the home is the basement. Homeowners who have a basement with windows should open them to full extension in order to bring fresh air into the space where their bedding is cooling off.

Close The Home's Entryways

Whenever the sun is shining, make sure that your home's blinds and curtains are fully closed. They'll prevent the hot sun rays from entering into your home. Close the doors and windows as well. When the sun sets, open up the home to let the cool nighttime air into your living space. Even if you don't open up all of the doors and windows, be sure to open the ones closest to your sleeping space so that you can get a good night's rest. You can always open the home's interior doors while locking the doors on the exterior so that no one can enter. This way, air will flow through the screen doors and into the home during the night.

Unplug Electronics And Appliances

Don't let your home's heating sources remain in the “on” position. Avoid using the oven on hot days. Either utilize the microwave, a convection oven or stick to foods that are cold or room temperature. Avoid incandescent light bulbs as well. This type of light bulb generates significant heat. Stock up on LED light bulbs to help keep your home as cool as possible.
