The temperature in your home might go up and down wildly; it’s one of the most modern problems we have to deal with, whether this be because you live in an old, badly suited building or the weather in your area has been changeable in recent years.
However, we can take a lot more charge over how hot or cold our homes feel, and we can use some very effective solutions to help keep it the most temperate and comfortable place we need it to be. You don’t have to be trapped in with the frost or the heat!
So, without further ado, here are some ways to take control over the temperature in your place, and helping it to stay cozy and constant.
Landscaping is key for ensuring cold, strong winds and the brightest sun rays stay off of your property. Because when you’ve got some well placed and planted trees to act as a natural barrier between your exterior walls and the outside world, you can cut down your energy bill by at least 20% during the most extreme seasons.
So get out there and plant! You can also use creeping vines to very good use here, as well as planting low, bushy greenery to keep your foundation safe and dry as well.
The insulation in your home needs to be top notch, to ensure you’re trapping the right air at the right times of the year. And seeing as you don’t want to whack that thermostat up any higher (because it’s expensive!), and you’re already considering an AC Installation, proper insulation can save you a lot of money.
It’s also a good idea to make sure you’ve got form fitting blinds hung up on your windows as well. These are good for blocking out excess sun, as well as keep the cold and damp away on particularly overcast days. Even just a pair of blackout curtains can work wonders.
Effective Venting Ideas
Every single home needs a good vent system, to make sure clean, fresh air is available throughout the house on a daily basis. But a venting system also ensures both hot and cold air finds its way back outside when it’s dragging the comfortableness of your home down.
For example, one of the best ways to vent any unnecessarily warm air out of your home is via the attic, seeing as it’s closest to the roof, and hot air rises anyway! Known as a ‘ridge vent’, this allows the hottest of air to rise straight out of your home, without needing to get a window or a ceiling fan installed. It helps to keep the bugs out as well!
All in all, you don’t have to let the warm or cold air stick around in your home when you don’t want it! Make sure you invest in some temperature controlling methods that’ll help to keep your property as comfortable as possible, no matter what season it is.
