Flooring to Keep Your Home Cool in the Summer
Southern California’s summer season is back, and Santa Clarita residents are searching for effective ways to make their homes cooler. Along with a more comfortable atmosphere, cooling your home will also significantly reduce your energy bills and save you money. SCV Floorsmith is Santa Clarita’s expert floor company, helping homeowners beat the heat through flooring options.
There are some key points to keep in mind when exploring flooring options. One of the most common mistakes is having tile floors installed in a room that received direct sunlight such as the living room or kitchen. When tile floors receive direct sunlight, they trap heat and slowly release the heat throughout the day. If your room has tile flooring, it would be wise to put heavy curtains on the windows to block out the sunlight, and keep the airflow going.
Carpet floors are another type of flooring to completely avoid during the summer. Carpet retains heat longer than any other kind of flooring, making the room feel stuffy and warm all day. If you are installing carpets for a bedroom, be sure to choose lighter color carpets, as they reflect heat better than darker colors which retain and radiate heat much longer.
While there are brands and type of all flooring that are compatible with the summer, wood floors are one of the best options for those looking to escape the summer heat. Wood floors tend to keep your home cool through all of the seasons. Wood flooring makes it easy to keep the heat out of your home in the summer and warm in the winter with the use of rugs – making this a great option to save some money on bills.
