Keeping Your House Cool In The Heat

Improving your home with energy efficient practices makes just as much sense in the summer as it does in the winter, especially with the heat we’ve seen so far this year. There are many tips and tricks to help keep your home cool this summer from fans to plants.

Planting trees, tall-growing shrubs and climbing plants near windows that receive a lot of summer sun can help keep your home cooler, as can good blinds and shutters. Speaking of windows, investing in double glazed windows can actually save you money on energy while making it more comfortable inside.

Fans are a tried and true method of cooling your home by increasing airflow. Finding cooler areas of your home – like the basement – and directing air to warmer areas can help more evenly distribute hot and cool air in your home.
