Beat the heat and keep your home cool this summer.

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 12 Apr 2010

As the frightening heat of the summer months approach get ready with these tips to cool your home down.

Paint your roof white. It will reflect sunlight rather than absorb it.  If you have a choice paint the whole exterior of your home in a lighter shade.

Invest in some indoor plants if you are living in an apartment. Plant trees if it is your own yard. Trees can provide the necessary shade and keep your home cool

Clean your A/C filter or replace the filter if the A/C is too old. Do not forget to close all doors and windows  when the A/C is running.

Invest in light coloured shades/blinds and drapes to reflect the heat out. Minimise the use of appliances, electronic devices and lighting. If unavaoidable at least do not use all of them at the same time. Remember the less internal heat you generate the less energy you will need to cool it.
