When the temperature outside is off-the-charts, you might not think that much effort is needed to enjoy your home’s interiors; anything’s nicer than being outside where it’s hotter than the surface of the sun, right? But there are four important elements to consider and include in your home’s interiors that will make surviving the long summer months much more enjoyable — and make living in your home all year round a much more pleasant experience.
1. Make sure your home is cooled efficiently
The key is to walk around your home and identify the elements that need improving that will have an impact on making your home cooler. From spots where cool air might be leaking out, changing air conditioner vents monthly, to fans and air conditioning units that need maintenance and repair to smaller but powerful things like using the right kind of window treatments to block sunlight at key hot times. Even if you’ve already done this keep-home-cool tour already this summer, don’t just do it once; continuously check in your home to keep it being its coolest. This will, in the long run, save you money and keep your home cool!
2. Keep the bugs out
Every summer the bugs want to come indoors and invade our homes. Here are a few articles that will help you keep your home pest free. Prevention is key. This will eliminate infestations and that awful feeling you get when you turn on a light at night and see little creatures that should not be in your home. (Ewwwww!)

4. Keep Your Home Clean and Clutter Free
Summer is a fun time. We vacation, have barbeques, have pool parties, etc. The trick to being able to do all of this and not break a sweat is to follow a few simple rules.
Firstly, make it a rule for yourself as well as everyone in your home. If you use it, clean it and return it to where it belongs immediately. This cuts down on clean up time when you have planned parties or unexpected guests.
Secondly, clean up messes, such as spilled drinks immediately.
