(BPT) – It’s summer and people are leaving the house – hanging out by the pool, on the beach or in the parks – to enjoy the warm weather. It’s fun to be outside all this time, but you don’t want to go back to a hot and stuffy house when you’re ready to cool off.

Your home should be your refuge from the summer heat so you can relax and rejuvenate. Use these five ways to turn your home into the perfect oasis to keep cool and comfortable all summer long.

1. Draw curtains and close blinds.

The easiest way to cool your home is to close windows, blinds, and curtains. While you may want to enjoy direct sunlight inside your home, it continues to heat up your space. During the sunniest hours of the day, keep curtains drawn or blinds closed to reflect heat. You can even buy heat shields or blackout curtains to keep light and heat out of your cool spaces.

2. Keep your rooms cool with a window air conditioner

Not all houses have central air conditioning, especially in older houses and apartments built without air ducts. Fortunately, you can still beat the heat by installing window air conditioners. Window air conditioners are easy to install in most windows and quickly cool the rooms in your home.

LG Dual Inverter Smart Window Air Conditioner delivers exceptional cooling power to keep the summer heat at bay all season long. This window unit provides optimal low noise levels so you can relax comfortably in your home. An energy efficient air conditioner saves up to 15 percent on energy costs. The 4-way air deflection directs airflow where it is needed most, whether cooling, dehumidifying or circulating air. You can also control the air conditioner with your phone or smart speaker using the LG ThinQ app.

3. Cover your bed with breathable sheets.

If you find it difficult to fall asleep when you are hot, it may be time to buy lighter, breathable bedding. Linen, cotton, bamboo and satin sheets help regulate body temperature and are pleasant to the touch. You can sink into your bed at night and enjoy the cooling comfort of these lightweight, breathable materials.

4. Invest in an air purifier

To ensure optimal home comfort, remember to invest in indoor air quality. High temperatures can lead to poor air quality, increasing the amount of pollution that enters your home every time you open a door or window. By investing in a quality air purifier, you will improve air quality so you can breathe easier and achieve maximum comfort at home.

This air purifier has been certified as asthma and allergy safe by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), providing peace of mind so users can breathe clean, clean air with ease. The device features UVnano LED technology that kills 99.9% of bacteria on fan blades, providing an extra layer of protection. As a bonus, this quiet air purifier features a sleek design that blends seamlessly with modern or traditional décor, improving air quality and making your home healthier.

5. Cook less to cool down

Cooking and baking will quickly heat up your home, making it difficult for you to enjoy a warm meal in a hot dining room. To reduce the frequency of using the stove or oven, plan meals that require little or no cooking, such as salads and sandwiches. If you plan to cook, try to cook in the morning, the coolest time of the day, and reheat food in the microwave. Or choose smaller countertop appliances that won’t generate and distribute as much heat as slow cookers or microwaves.

One of the best ways to prepare a hot meal without heating up your house is to cook your food outdoors on a grill. Enjoy the sunshine while you fry hamburgers and sausages and cool off at your home at the dining table.

With these five tips, you can keep cool, beat the heat, and turn your home into a cozy oasis this summer.
