Here are 5 ways in which you can make your home summer-ready.

1. Get a professional architect to suggest structural changes

An experienced architect can advise you on small but efficient changes that could improve your comfort in the summer. For instance, you can add awnings to your windows to keep away the worst of the heat, or break a wall to optimise air circulation.

2. Keep your cooling appliances well-maintained

Cooling appliances are a necessity in the summer months. Hence, it is always important to keep them well-maintained. If your home has central air-conditioning, get it serviced regularly to keep the vents and air passages working optimally. It is wise to have a contract with an external agency for timely maintenance. You can also replace all old ACs and fridges with new models that also promise energy efficiency and better, faster cooling.

3. Invest in a good power backup system

A good power backup system like a high capacity inverter is a must-have for areas that have frequent power outages. In summer especially, power cuts can cause tremendous discomfort. So, invest in a high-performance but budget inverter that at least provides your cooling appliances sufficient electricity to run during power cuts.

4. Use exhaust fans or chimneys in your kitchen

A kitchen is a part of your home that must always be well-ventilated. An enclosed kitchen will cause heat and food odours to get trapped in your home causing it to get warmer. To beat this, install a chimney in your kitchen along with one or two exhaust fans. You can also increase the number of windows in your kitchen to improve the airflow.

5. Add cooling elements like house plants

There are various other changes that can contribute immensely to making your home cooler. Adding cooling plants like aloe vera, ficus tree, fern and golden pothos will keep the temperature down. You can also invest in good blackout curtains that prevent the sunrays and radiation from entering your home.

It’s time to keep the heat at bay and increase the comfort and value of your home.
