The heat is catching up and MAY is yet to come. The weather around this time of the year is totally unforgiving. To deal with this,the most commonly used appliance is the Air- conditioner.

We bring you some easy to follow, environment friendly, budget friendly and healthy tips to keep your home cool this summer, naturally.
1. Leave the windows open after sunset but close it in the afternoon.
Sun brings a lot of brightness but at the same time a lot of heat. So it’s best to close the windows in the afternoon. The natural evening breeze will keep your home cool naturally.
2. Turn off Appliances.
When not in use, switch off the appliances. LED lights, computers, laptops. This will not only save energy but also keep your home cool as these appliances when in use emit a lot of heat in the environment.

Tank water contain a lot of moisture that makes the home environment humid. Use the tank water in the evening. This will keep the room temperature cool.
