Top tips to keep your home cool this summer

With temperatures set to reach 30c this week, here are some tips to keep your home cool.


Keep your blinds closed

  • If the sun shines directly into a room, ensure you block out the sun with blinds or curtains. This will keep the room cooler, and protect your room from becoming greenhouse like.

Change your bed clothing

  • Swap those warm flannel sheets for cooling cotton. Change your winter duvet for a duvet with a tog value of 3.0.

Switch from oven cooked foods to salad

  • This one may seem obvious with warmer weather, but please refrain from using your oven as it generates extensive heat. Why not BBQ outside?

Open your windows at night

  • Temperatures drop at night time, if it is possible to keep your windows open slightly, it will allow cool air to circulate while you sleep.

Stay Hydrated

  • Sip on iced cool drinks throughout the day and night to regulate your body temperature. Applying a cold wet cloth to your neck and wrists also helps to cool from the inside out.
