Creating Comfortable Homes - Part 2

  • 71214448_xxl

Your home is your haven. The place that gives your family safety, comfort, and shelter from the elements. In summer, we all want to be able to escape the heat, and relax in a cool, comfortable environment, so keep your home cooler for longer by adapting it to prepare for hot days with some natural cooling methods.

We’ve got a few more techniques and tricks to help you cool your home down when it’s heating up outside. Let’s take a look.

Make it shady

One of the most important tips we can give you is to create shading around your home. Removable shades will help block out the sun in summer and reduce the amount of heat that bares down on your windows, and ultimately enters your home. Plus, they will help create cooler outdoor areas you can enjoy without being directly in the heat and sunlight.

Open it up or shut it out

Learn when to open up your home for maximum air flow. Close it up on hot summer days and then open everything up in the evening to take full advantage of evening breezes. On top of this, closing off unused rooms will prevent cool air from escaping into them, and keep it flowing where you need it most. Learning when to open or close your home can also help minimise the amount of allergens that can get inside. Close the windows when pollen counts are highest: early in the morning, during the heat of the day, and on warm, breezy days.

Create flow

If you’re building of renovating, think carefully about where your windows will be situated. Make sure their placements will help take advantage of evening breezes.


Ceiling fans come in all different styles, shapes, and sizes, and they provide cooling and promote airflow pretty economically. Install some ceiling fans in rooms that tend to get stuffy, like bedrooms, and living rooms.

Of course, as well as these cooling methods, air conditioning is one of the most efficient ways to maintain a comfortable indoor climate. They also filter and improve the air quality in our homes.

Finding the right air conditioner for your home depends on lots of different factors and how they affect the comfort of your home and its temperature. Our comfort specialists can work through all of the factors with you to find the right solution for your home and family. Get in touch with us on 1300 COMFORT.
