6. Heat Pump Solution
We know that investing in a Heat Pump
can be costly, however, they are a versatile and efficient system that can help you keep your home cool in the warmer months.
An air source heat pump
typically works by transferring the ambient air from outside, which passes a compressor that will heat your home. The heat pump can also work by removing heat from the indoor air to the outdoor air, effectively cooling your home and providing a consistent and comfortable climate in your living space, regardless of the outside temperature.
This is because the system won't rely on cool air from the outside, but instead, it extracts heat from the indoor air, which will affect your home's temperature.
Additionally, a heat pump can enhance indoor air quality by filtering out pollen, dust and other airborne particles, while also extracting and maintaining optimal moisture levels in your property.

7. Paint you Home Exterior
Choosing a suitable exterior material can make a surprising amount of difference in how naturally cool your home is.
For instance, using darker paint colours will typically absorb more warmth from the sun, which can increase the temperature inside your home and could increase your monthly bills from trying to keep your home cool.
Instead, choosing lighter-coloured walls can reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat, which will help keep your home cooler during hot summer days. There’s a reason why many countries with hotter climates utilise white painted buildings.
If you're thinking about updating the appearance of your house, opting for a lighter shade for the exterior can provide a renewed look and contribute to keeping your home cooler and more energy-efficient during the warmer months.
