Sachin Phartiyal, Vice President, Appliance Business – Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Ltd shares 7 tips on how to have indoor cooling zones to keep your family cool this summer. Read to know more:

Drape away the heat with some curtains or blinds

With the sweltering sun that comes knocking on to your windows especially during the daytime, close your blinds particularly from the later part of the mornings to the early evenings. Use fabrics like cotton or materials like jute screens or bamboo shoots with pastel / lighter colors and stay away from those darker shades. This will make your room airy and light.

The superior cooling easy maintenance air cooler

The coolers work on evaporative cooling and take hot air from the surrounding and give away cool air. They work best with open door and windows. Air coolers come in different types (desert, tower, window, personal) that are adaptable for your homes. Look towards coolers that have faster cooling and higher air delivery which cools every corner of the room. With new technologies, there is also various easy ways to maintain these coolers so you don’t have to worry about the cooler working for you instead of the other way around.

Go green with some good ole plants

Bring in a little bit of nature like window plants that act as a natural cooling resource. From growing vines and creepers to aloe vera as well as planting some ferns or palm trees, it not only keeps your indoors cooler but also keeps away the toxins in the air.

Cross ventilate your rooms

Learn to control your room temperatures simply by strategically opening and closing your windows at the right time of the day. Since temperatures fluctuate especially during the summer season, the best time to get some cool breeze indoors is from 5 am to 8 am and then from 8 pm to 10 pm to let in that pleasant evening breeze especially in the night.

Cool your room with some cool sheets

With the summer season on, we tend to chill out at home especially on our bed. However, you don’t want to wake up all sweaty and itchy hence you should not have any materials that are silk, satin or polyester and instead go for more breathable ones like cotton or linen that are light and refreshing.

Unplug those electronics

Electronic equipment and anything connected to a socket, if left on idle for a long period of time, tends to get heated up which generates more heat to the home.

It’s a simple yet underrated thing but will do a lot of good especially in the long run as it will not only improve your cool zones but also save up on energy.
