Sunny days and warm temperatures are a welcomed sign of summer coming. But it’s not too long before things start to get hot in the house— maybe too hot.
Putting a large AC unit in every room of the house or installing a swimming pool in the backyard might seem like great ways to keep cool, they’re also hugely expensive.
Here are some tips to cool things down without breaking the bank.
1. Grow some houseplants
Some plants, like cacti and bromeliads, take in water from the air and so can help reduce humidity in your home. That keeps everything cooler.
2. Buy a dehumidifier
If the plants aren’t cutting it, buy a dehumidifier to do the same job of removing moisture from the air and making you feel cooler even at hot temperatures.
