    How to Keep Cool This Summer

    Circulate Your Air

    Not only should you have your A/C running for majority of the day, but incorporate some fans to ensure quality air flow. When cooking in the kitchen, always use the exhaust fan to pull the steam out of the room. Remember to freshen your home by opening windows and doors at night. 

    The Villa Scent Diffuser connects to HVAC systems, to circulate cool refreshing air as well as your desired Hotel Collection fragrance.

    Switch Out Bedding & Clothes for Lighter Fabrics

    Mattresses that enhance a cool sleep often utilize moisture-wicking covers or breathable foam cores. The most breathable fabrics, for both summer bedding and clothing, are:

    • Cotton
    • Chambray
    • Hemp
    • Linen
    • Rayon

    Shut Out Direct Sunlight

    Invest in some quality blinds, drapes or curtains to block out the sun during the day. This will not only keep your home temperature low, but also your A/C bill.

    House Plants

    Plants release extra moisture from their leaves back into the air when their environment warms up, according to NASA’s Earth Science Study. This process helps to get stuffy air flowing as well as lower the temperature in your home.

    Hydrate More

    In the hotter months, your body requires more hydration to make up for body sweat. In the summer, most people tend to go outdoors more, which also burns up more calories. Eating hydrating foods, such as fruit and ice pops, will also keep your body temperature cooler.
