Summer is finally here, and with it comes longer days and hot temperatures. You might be eager to get out and about and enjoy some fun in the sun. If you find that your apartment is a little stuffy, there are a few things you can do to improve the air quality and ensure your apartment is cool enough.
Bring Nature Inside
Summer is a great time to learn how to grow plants. Even if you don’t have your own balcony or patio, you can learn how to become an indoor gardener and learn how to place in the right location so they get enough light. According to healthline.com, houseplants can help reduce indoor air pollution and remove other volatile organic compounds from indoor air. Indoor plants not only help in the summer, but winter too. The folks over at Back Yard Boss have some great tips in their article Beat The Winter Blues With Houseplant How To’s.
Unplug Devices When You Are Not Using Them
Keeping unnecessary devices plugged in to electrical outlets not only costs you money, but can also heat up your apartment. Unplug phone and laptop chargers, televisions, gaming consoles, and other entertainment devices when they are not in use. This will not only help you save money, but can also help you reduce energy used in your apartment, which can help prevent additional heat from building up.
Remove Stuffy Air At Night With Windows & Ceiling Fans
If you have a ceiling fan in your apartment, consider opening the windows and turning on your fans. This can help you save money on your electric bill, yet still keep your apartment cool at night. Keep the windows closed during the day and turn on your AC to keep your apartment comfortable.
