Summerize Your Home: Natural Solutions
Tip #3: Au Naturel
Preparing your home for the heat needn’t be a big to-do. You can keep it simple by using what’s natural. Getting overheated in bed? Try hanging a hammock between trees and sleeping outside to get the benefit of those fabled summer breezes (just don’t forget the bug repellent). Coming home to a stifling abode after a long day away? Close the curtains before leaving to keep your place naturally cool. Feeling the energy-bill burn? The days are getting longer, so optimize the natural light by turning off any unnecessary electrical illumination.
