Summer in Kerala
It can be said that March to June is the time for summer in Kerala. Although sometimes the temperature starts soaring right from the month of February, the summer properly sets in from the month of March. The temperature may become as high as 40°C. People come to visit Kerala in summer to enjoy the beauty of the backwaters. However, when people come back from the cool climate of the beaches and backwaters to their warm hotel rooms, it is not a very comfortable feeling. If you own a house in Kerala, and you don’t have air-conditioned rooms, then you should think of making small amendments to your house to make it summer-ready. If you live in Kerala, then here are a few tips for you to prepare your home during the scorching heat.
Red Oxide Flooring – In Palakkad, this is a common feature to keep the floors summer-ready. If you own a house with floor tiles, then you will know how hot it becomes during the summer afternoons. One good solution is to revamp the flooring with a red oxide coating. One interesting fact is that this kind of floor work was introduced in Kerala by Portuguese traders. The entire floor work takes a maximum of 5-6 days to finish. This floor work is not very costly and yet summer-friendly. Therefore, if you want a really good solution for the summers at a moderate cost, then red oxide flooring is a good one.
Say goodbye to winter – Create a feeling that the winter is a world away and prepare your mind for that. Update your home space with lighter and brighter accessories. Extinguish anything that leads to heat like fire, logs, heavy rugs, draperies, heaters, and thick blankets. Candles can be replaced with vessels for fresh cut flowers and change the winter mats with lightweight white ones. Thoroughly wash the windows in and out. Create a moonlight mood with outdoor lights after cleaning and arranging the house.
Ventilators near the ceiling – If your house is of a modern structure, then there are very rare chances to find ventilators in the rooms. In fact, these days, rooms contain windows only and ventilators are mostly found in the kitchen. However, there are many houses in Palakkad, Kerala, where there are ventilators in every room. When the fans in a room run constantly for more than 24 hours, then the air inside starts to become hot rather than cold. This hot air goes up in the room and it doesn’t get a chance to move out of the room if there is no ventilator near the ceiling. If your room contains two ventilators and two windows on the two walls of your room facing each other, then you will feel much cooler than a room having only windows. You may not even need an air conditioner. Therefore, you should approach an efficient builder to provide you a house with scientifc ventilation.
False Ceilings – These are really very effective in keeping the rooms cold. The rooms look very classy and yet give you the necessary comfort in the summers. Unlike, option three, this option is generally provided to you by the builders of your house. If you have already bought a house in Kerala, and do not have this feature of false ceiling, you can contact any builder group to provide you with the labourers who will add the false ceiling to the ceiling of your house.
Pest control – During summer months, pesky insects also invade your house. Check whether your home is properly sealed. Worn strips can be replaced to lower the energy bills. The exterior of the house can be sprayed by a preventive insecticide. Check for holes or tears on doors and screen windows.
Keep air-conditioned rooms – If your house doesn’t contain ventilators at all and you cannot find people who can drill ventilator shaped holes on the walls of your room, then you can think of installing an AC in your room. If you have two bedrooms, then you will have to buy two ACs to beat the summer heat. If you own a villa in Palakkad and have more than three bedrooms, then you can think of installing the ACs in all the main bedrooms and in one of the guest bedrooms. People who do a lot of cooking can install stand fans in their kitchen. As the kitchen area is generally not very wide, it is pointless to install an air-conditioner there. Therefore, stand fans are a much cheaper and effective solutions for the kitchens.
