Give attention to your Residential Apartment Windows
Windows are very important to your apartment if you want it to be properly ventilated. The dimension, position and surroundings of your windows will go a long way to affect how well ventilated your apartment can be. If your house is still at the building stage, it is advisable that you place the windows at strategic locations to ensure cross ventilation. You should also consider the dimensions of each window and how it will be able to aid proper air circulation and reduces the heat from the ceilings. If your apartment is completed already, there is nothing much you can do, although it is still possible to adjust at extra cost. Where you cannot, focus on making sure nothing blocks the existing windows. So many persons ignorantly block their apartment windows from within with furniture and other apartment fittings, it is better you don’t have such properties than have them block your source of fresh air. In some apartment you find external attachment at windows positions. If you live in such apartment, tell the owners of such attachments to relocate them or better still you look for another apartment, since your health will be at stake if you continue to live in such apartment.
Go natural – Grow a living Flower in your Residential Apartment
It is a well-known fact that plants absorb or takes up carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. This implies that green plants can help in purifying polluted air in your residential apartment as they act as a screen by absorbing the heat from the sun. Green plants help a great deal in generating cool air inside a residential apartment. So in place of that artificial flower pot in your apartment, think of having a natural flower pot in and around your residential apartment.
Use Water Bodies as Cooling Agents
Having external water bodies like a swimming pool, water font or a fish pond can act as a coolant where the air is cooled in the water bodies and then circulate to the nearby apartment. This is achievable only when you are the owner of the property you reside in or you are on a long lease.
In conclusion, you can reduce the heat in your residential apartment by turning down some electrical devices, use a low powered bulb that generates less heat. Use silk curtains that allow free air inflow.
