Get your house summer-ready!

You don’t need the experts to tell you that summer has the potential to be hot. As we move out of this disgusting winter and the cold that you’ve been feeling every day for nearly six months and into the warmer weather, it’s exciting to be able to embrace dresses and shorts and T-shirts again.

While you’re getting out your summer wardrobe, you should also think about what you could be doing for your home to make it summer-ready. For example, choosing to fix your gardening power tools is a great way to get started.

You want to spend more time outdoors during the summer months, so when it comes to getting your home summer-ready, you need to think about how the outside is going to look as much as the inside.

Let’s take a look at some of the best ways that you can make sure that you get your home summer-ready so that you can enjoy those lasting longer days.

Do an audit of the house

It may seem like a strange activity, but doing an audit of your house is a great way to ensure that it’s some already. Look at where the heat is likely to seep in and the air is likely to seep out. The last thing you want to do is to have an air conditioner at home that has so many cracks in it that you’re spending a lot of money on your electricity bill. Check the insulation in the walls on the roof to ensure that they are in good condition and make sure that your roof is free from any leaks or damage that may have occurred over the colder months. This will prevent any of the cold air from entering your home.

Protect Your Home

Make sure you protect your home from the sun. You can’t protect the exterior of your home from the rays of the sun in all honesty, but you can protect the interior. As the sunlight hits your windows during the day, you’re going to have a large amount of heat transferred into your house, so keep your curtains, blinds or shutters closed where you can. By doing this you can keep the rooms cooler and make sure that you have something comfortable to sit in during the day.

Have your HVAC checked over

The extreme heat will mean that you need to have a reliable air conditioning unit to help you stay cool. If you already have air-con, make sure that you have your unit serviced regularly, and if you haven’t already, get a technician to check the gas levels as well as other things. You should also be sure to clean your filters so that you know that your icon is working in the right way.

If you are ready to upgrade or buy a new air conditioner for the summer, you should take a look at what your options are now so that you can make sure that your air-con is ready to keep you cool.

Call a gardener

If you don’t have time to get out into the garden yourself, call a gardener and have somebody come and do the heavy lifting for you. They’ll be able to get your entire garden ready for the summer months so that you can go outside and relax. 

There you have it, the best ways to make your home summer-ready!
