The Met Office has declared Red and Amber Warnings for hot weather across the UK next week, with temperatures set to soar into the high 30s. While some people may be taking this opportunity to bask in the sunshine, many of us will be worrying about how to keep cool the heat rises. If you have to stay indoors for whatever reason, here are some tips on how to stay cool in hot weather.
1. Keep your curtains closed
When the sun comes out and your home starts getting hot, your first instinct may be to open all your windows and curtains. While there is good sense to this, the best thing your can do is open your windows but keep your curtains and blinds closed – or half closed. That way you can keep fresh air circulating into your house while keeping some of the most intense heat at bay!
This is why a lot of cities in hot countries have shutters on their windows. They can keep fresh air circulating while also pointing the slats in a way that deflects direct sunlight.
