1. Implementing drafts: open your doors, and windows and turn on the fan

As we all know, summer is the hottest time of the year. The days are long and the sun is strong, and if you don't take any precautions you can end up feeling like you are in a sauna. It is a known fact that heat is the number one cause of discomfort in the home. Heat is a silent killer and can cause serious health problems, so make sure you keep the temperature in your home as low as possible. Here are some simple tips on how to cool your home naturally:

2. If the window is not possible, try installing a whole house fan

Air conditioners are a necessity in most parts of the world. As we all observe the extreme heat nowadays is due to global warming. It is high time to look for other options to beat the heat. What if you don't have a window to install a window AC? So you can place a whole house fan to cool your home. These fans are the best for keeping the house cool without any electricity. They are even more efficient in cooling small houses or apartments. According to the EPA, homes that use air conditioning account for almost 20 percent of energy use and more than 10 percent of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why it’s important to be more energy efficient at home. One way to do that is by cooling your home naturally. When it is hot outside, you may be tempted to turn on the air conditioning. However, it is possible to cool your home naturally. By opening the windows and doors, you are allowing the cool air to filter in. You can also create some air circulation by installing a whole house fan. A whole house fan is a great way to naturally cool your home, but you must also make sure that your home is well-ventilated. You can easily install a whole house fan yourself.

3. going in for a cool paint: if the whole house fan is not an option, then go for cool and pale colors for the walls or whitewash it for a retro feel

The sun has been punishing us badly these past few days. The heat is unbearable and it shows no signs of dying down anytime soon. Everyone is complaining about the extreme temperatures and the government is considering declaring a state of emergency. However, there are some simple ways you can keep your home cool in the summer.

4. Make sure you have enough insulation within the home and keep the thermostat at or below 73 degrees

As we are all observing the extreme heat nowadays due to global warming. I have been experiencing this myself and have had to keep my air conditioning on constantly. I have noticed that when the air conditioner is on, the temperature in my home can go down from 80 degrees to 65 degrees within 30 minutes. This gives me a great idea of how important insulation is within the walls of my home. I also have a very old thermostat that I am contemplating replacing as it does not seem to be accurate. I wanted to share with you some simple things that you can do to help cool your home naturally.

5. Use ceiling fans: these are inexpensive and do not use much electricity, hence cost saving.

Ceiling fans are most commonly used in the summer, but this is not the only time you can use them. In fact, ceiling fans can be used in the winter to help save on heating costs. With the weather turning colder, you will probably be turning your heat on. Turning on the heat means a higher utility bill. You can save money on your home heating costs by putting your ceiling fans on a reverse setting. This will push the warm air down from the ceiling, and it will keep you warmer as you are sitting at your desk. I have decided to write this article because of the extreme heat we have been experiencing lately. You can call it global warming or climate change, but it is affecting our environment. A lot of people are complaining that they are boiling at home. I have been watching the news and they are saying that it is because of the extreme heat and that we should keep all the doors and windows closed. I don’t think that’s the best solution. I mean, it is the hottest time of the year, and we should leave our windows open, at least a little bit. It is also a fact that our electric bills are much higher than they should be this time of the year. So how can we keep our homes cool during the hot days? Well, the most wallet-friendly option is to use ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are the cheapest way to keep your home naturally cool. They cost almost nothing to run and they make you feel like you have an air conditioner in your home, without spending a lot of money on it.

6. Clean up the attic: get rid of all the stuff up there which in turn will cool the house down.

So, when it comes to your attic, we know you have a lot to do, especially in this hot summer. The weather is really hard on your house and you might be tempted to just close the door and let the heat do its thing. In some cases, it might be your best option, but if you want to live healthily and make your home a comfortable place to be, you need to take care of your attic. It is the perfect place to store all your old stuff, but it can also be a big problem if you don’t use it properly. My wife, a Northeasterner, and I, a Southerner, had a major difference of opinion about the attic. She wanted to keep it neat and clean and put away unused things. I wanted to throw out everything and start fresh. She wanted to keep the roof access door closed and padlocked. I wanted to leave it open so we could air out the attic. She wanted to keep the old air-conditioning unit up there for next summer. It's still up there in the rafters, even though it hasn't worked for years and the fins are rusted.
