Now that the warm weather is here, your home may be feeling a bit stuffier than usual, and this can be even worse without air conditioning. However, there are many ways that homeowners can keep their home cooler in the summer by changing up their routine to ensure they don't come home to sweltering abode.

Humidity is the biggest drag of the summer season, and leaving your window open for a limited amount of time can make your home unbearable. Ensure that your home is completely closed during the day to keep moisture and humidity at bay. Additionally, invest in a de-humidifier - this device will work wonders to create a cooler environment in your home.

Window blinds and shades are the most cost-effective ways to create a comfortable environment. By keeping the window treatments drawn during the day, you will help to cut down the amount of sunlight entering your home, which will significantly lower the temperature.

Honeycomb cellular shades are the best option to keep your home well-insulated in any season. Their unique cellular liner will control air leakage and actually help to reduce your monthly utility bills.
