3 Easy-To-Do Tricks To Keep Your Home Cool In This Hot Weather

In the summertime, family picnics, beach trips, and even field games are common activities. However, extreme exposure to the sun can be risky, so more and more people are opting to stay at home on hot days. But even time spent at home can be uncomfortable especially in a tropical country like ours; the hot temperature can cause dehydration, stress, and even heat stroke.

Here are tips to keep your home cool and make your stay indoor more comfortable during this season:


1. Change your bedsheets, and put some curtains.

When summer comes around, you need to replace your thick beddings with something lighter. Palettes of cool whites and soft blues exude a summer vibe; they're like a breath of fresh air in the room. To maintain a refreshing feeling within your home, install curtains to protect you and your family from the intense heat of the sun.




2. Use energy-efficient bulbs.

To keep your rooms cooler during summer months, consider using energy-efficient bulbs. Refrain from using incandescent bulbs because they generate 90% more heat than their LED light counterparts. Switching to LED lights does not just give optimum lighting for your spaces, they also help you save on energy cost. To help you create an impressive illumination for your home, Wilcon Depot introduces its own product line, Alphalux lighting solutions brand. Alphalux LED bulbs come in a variety of wattages, and has 15,000 hours life expectancy. Alphalux also offers dimmable lights and changing color bulbs.
