Combating Heat During Peak Summer Hours
Summers are much loved for spreading warmth, light and cheer after the grueling cold and grey months of the long winter season. Shedding off the heavy winter garments it is time to soak in the warmth. The sun shining down brightly is such a relief and joy to wake up to instead of the cloudy dark skies that accompany most winter mornings. However, after the initial euphoria with summer subsides and the sun starts gaining strength, temperatures start soaring making it a tad bit unpleasant and uncomfortable. The summer sun at its peak is harsh making all places hot, humid and sultry. There seems to be no respite from the heat even at home. Sunlight seems to pour through from every window and the harsh glares make it difficult to sleep, work or play. Air conditioners work overtime to keep the interiors cool but the heat flowing through makes it difficult for the coolers and they have to overwork which is reflected in the inflated energy bills that you receive during the summer months.
