It’s hot, you’re sweaty and you’re scared to lower the thermostat in fear that your energy bills will skyrocket. Sound familiar? You’re not alone — it can get quite uncomfortable during the summer months and homeowners are often faced with quite the battle. Well, today we’re talking accessories that can help keep you cool without breaking the bank. Don’t wait until it gets even hotter, check these out now!
1 – Chill Out With a Mattress Pad
Tossing and turning at night as you overheat in your sheets? You can prevent this from happening and get a much better night’s sleep with a cooling mattress pad. Most are water-based and can cool down to about 55°F. Just make sure the water tank is full before you get into bed.
2 – Stay Dry With Moisture-Wicking Sheets
Still find yourself sweating in bed? Moisture-wicking sheets can help manage perspiration in order to keep you both cooler and drier at night. Look for them on Amazon or where specialty bedding is sold.
3 – Beat Sweat With a Misting Fan
Why use a regular fan that simply circulates warm air when you can actually cool the air by up to 25°F. Misting fans can help you feel much cooler without using too much energy.
4 – Install Window Film
The sun’s rays can be quite hot during the summer and when they beat down on your windows and doors, your house heats up as a result. Consider installing heat-reflective window film which can reject upwards of 60% of solar energy.
In most cases, you can install it yourself so you won’t even have to pay for installation!
5 – Stay Hydrated
Sometimes all it takes to beat the heat is an ice cold beverage. We recommend drinking out of a frosty mug to keep your drink cold until the very last drop. They’re rather inexpensive and you can refreeze them over and over all summer long.
