Keep your cool all summer long

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

With Summer comes plenty of sunshine, and with it lots of heat — sometimes more than you enjoy. Are you lacking central air conditioning in your place? Don’t sweat it. There are many easy things you can do to keep yourself and your whole family cool as summer starts to heat up.

STAY HYDRATED

Wherever you’re spending time over the summer, when the thermometer starts to climb, you need to keep everyone adequately hydrated. Keeping plenty of cold drinks handy will not only help you feel better, but will also aid in regulating your body temperature.

ENJOY THE SHADE

Use window coverings like blinds, shades or curtains to block out harsh sunlight, especially during the peak hottest hours of the day.

COOL YOUR AIR SMARTLY

Choose an efficient and quiet window air conditioner like the LG DUAL Inverter Window Air Conditioners from LG Electronics that cools you down and saves you money. Through the LG ThinQ mobile app, you can access and program your cooling preferences effortlessly — from anywhere. The Energy Star-certified unit’s Dual Inverter Compressor offers up to 40 percent more energy savings.

KEEP THE COOL AIR MOVING

Use portable area fans and/or ceiling fans to help keep that cool air moving around your home. If you have ceiling fans, be sure that you’ve adjusted the setting on the fan to turn the blades counterclockwise during the summertime. This helps push air downward, to help everyone stay cooler.

DON’T HEAT UP YOUR KITCHEN

Avoid cooking meals that require firing up the oven, as that can leave your whole house feeling hotter for hours after the meal is over. Stick with salads and sandwiches on the hottest days, or even use an outdoor grill.

DRESS FOR THE HEAT

Opt for cooler materials, both for yourself and for your bedding, to enjoy a better night’s sleep. Choose fabrics like cotton, rayon and linen that are light and breathable, allowing heat to escape from your body.
