Do you struggle with the heat during the warmer months of the year?
Always start to sweat within minutes of jumping out of the shower?
If you hate the heat, then the hottest months of the year can be stressful, with a constant battle to stay cool.
Fortunately, if you want to leave your home feeling cool, calm, and collected each morning, then you only need to make a few small changes to your bathroom regime.
Read on to discover them all!
Allow cool air to circulate
Should you open your bathroom window to let in some air during the day, or should you keep it firmly closed?
When the sun is facing your bathroom during the day, you should keep your bathroom window closed as this will prevent warm air from coming in and minimise the effect of the sun’s rays.
However, when the sun moves away or has gone down, now is the time to fully open your window to allow cool air to circulate.
Use your shower
This may seem obvious, but in the summertime, you should opt for a shower rather than a bath if you want to keep yourself and your bathroom cool.
Ideally, you should only have short showers as this will create less steam and keep the temperature of the room lower. If you can manage to have a cold shower, then even better as cold water does not create any steam.
Invest in a fan
If your bathroom does not currently have an exhaust fan, then now is the time to invest in one. Exhaust fans are not that expensive and work by pulling dry air out of your bathroom.
You do not need to have your exhaust fan running all the time as this will use a lot of energy. Instead, put it on when you have a bath or shower to get rid of any steam and keep your bathroom cool.
Install underfloor heating
Although this may sound crazy as you are trying to make your bathroom cooler, not hotter, you can get underfloor heating systems that also have a cooling function.
This means that you can heat up your floors during the colder months of the year and cool them down when temperatures start to rise.
It is worth noting that underfloor heating systems do not come cheap, and it is better to have these installed when you are renovating your bathroom to cut down on costs.
Turn off the lights
The more energy you use in your bathroom, the more heat is generated. Therefore, if you want to keep this space cool, you should try to use as little energy as possible.
Always switch off the lights when you are not in the room, and don’t leave any other appliances running nearby.
