Useful tips to fight afa in a smart and low cost way
The heat, even if we are ready between last generation air conditioners and classic fans, is often a sworn enemy of the electricity bill and summer nights. However, there are tricks and tips to refresh your home during the most sultry months, without having to spend a fortune.
These are mainly do-it-yourself tricks. They range from the most classic and well-known closed door and window systems, with the shutters rigorously lowered during daylight hours to the tactical exploitation of the fan. In the first cases we talk about well-known methods useful to create shade in the home and allow us to use the conditioner for less hours and at reduced power, both day and night.
The fan trick, although fairly well known, is frequently underestimated: the friend of our bills (consumes relatively little electricity) can be "boosted" with a container full of ice resting on a chair, or a stool, positioned in front of the blades . In this way, in a cheap way, you will get a refreshing steam in the room.
Other useful tips are those related to the fabrics to be preferred: in summer, whether it is sheets or curtains, it is better to opt for light colors and above all light and breathable fabrics, such as cotton, percale or silk.
The rooms will thus remain sheltered from the sun’s rays and external heat while the light will be able to filter the same, guaranteeing lighting and airiness, and everything will be less suffocating especially during the night.
Plants, in turn, have great utility. In addition to creating pretty green corners and reviving the environment, giving it a natural and colorful touch, they guarantee good oxygenation. The important thing is to be careful to choose the right ones and to limit oneself with those to put in the bedrooms. Plants and flowers "refreshing" and purifying, both externally and internally, are for example climbing plants such as ivy (which, however, requires much care and is suitable for outodoor level), sansevieria, azaleas, gerberas, aloe vera, the pothos, the ficus Benjamin, the dracena, the spatifillo, the phalangio and many others.
In addition, limiting the consumption of unnecessary household appliances will make it possible to lighten the bill and the air in the home: each device, although not used, produces heat, a consequence of the consumption of electricity. It is therefore advisable to turn them off after use, if they are not needed again, and to disconnect battery chargers and the like from the sockets, also for safety reasons.
Changing the bulbs with high consumption (and warm / excessively artificial lighting) is another useful precaution from the moment in which, favoring the LED ones, will allow to considerably reduce the heat they emanate as well as the electric consumption, while favoring a more natural lighting able to be even more durable over time.
As for balconies, terraces and gardens, there is space for gazebos and umbrellas ideal for shading and refreshing entry into the home or access to the aforementioned outdoor space. In addition to this, it is good to keep the humidity at bay, the infamous afa ally, guilty of numerous sleepless nights. To limit it you can for example reduce the average time of a shower - not the quantity -: the more water vapor you produce, the more you will have it at home. It is good to favor a cold, more regenerating and less wasteful jet of water.
Keeping the lids on top of the pots when you are cooking at the stove will further help to counteract the humidity in the kitchen and in the dining room, rooms to be ventilated often, during the cooler hours (such as early in the morning or in the evening). The same applies to bathrooms and closets. When the heat is excessive also for this practice the fans can be exploited, alternating with the conditioner, one of the best tools to absorb humidity.
Finally, it is possible to purchase ad hoc objects, which are also valuable for neutralizing odors and preventing environments from the onset of mold. Take inspiration from our products, such as the Thai humidifier, which recalls the historic temples of Bangkok in the sumptuous and elegant look given by the lines that are at once simple, clean and supple. The oriental atmosphere is perceived even in the perfumed notes diffused in the air, in a lighter or intense way, depending on the selected vaporization mode. All in the silence guaranteed by the diffusion activated by ultrasound.
Thanks to the soft lighting, given by the marble color chosen precisely to recall the Thai chromaticity, it also performs the function of a LED lamp (light and vaporizer can be used separately). It therefore gives the room a refined touch even when it is not in use. Combating humidity with style is
