Glass by Gaviota, an expert firm in architectural and decorative solutions, proposes a series of tips to protect yourself from extreme heat this summer at home. In this sense, regulating the passage of sun and heat, through recommended materials for doors, windows and enclosures, not only generates energy savings, but also favors cooling in summer.
The arrival of the long-awaited good weather can translate into heat waves that interrupt any activity due to the impact on lifestyle. On numerous occasions, the extreme heat from outside "sneaks" into homes making it very difficult to carry out daily activities without these being strongly conditioned as a result. For this reason, having air conditioning units becomes insufficient and other ways of active resistance to heat must be assessed. In this sense, Glass by Gaviota, a leading company in glazing and space protection thanks to sustainable architectural solutions, shares a series of tricks focused on the optimization of comfort and energy saving: The importance of good air conditioning and sustainable materials: windows and sliding doors that can be opened and sliding • Air conditioning and air conditioning is a source of expenses and, on some occasions, of troubles upside down To air-condition a home, or any space that is going to be used continuously, it is necessary to air-condition it in a sustainable and linear way. In the first place, it is advisable to maintain an interior temperature of 19º to 21º Celsius in the winter months and approximately 22 to 26ºC in the months when the heat is severe. • Ventilation is another important factor, since maintaining an appropriate renewal of the air inside the houses will significantly help to save energy that is sought in the middle of a heat wave. Therefore, it is advisable to ventilate without exceeding ten minutes and always first thing in the morning.• Likewise, an act as simple as lowering the blinds during the day is another great tip for this time of year since approximately 30% the heat sneaks through them, especially between 12 noon and 4 p.m. • Another factor in which not all people "fall" when buying a home is its thermal insulation. In this sense, accessories such as windows and sliding doors can account for 25% of energy in winter, but also insulate from heat and noise in months prone to heat waves. Fortunately, the material with which they are made the windows and sliding doors of the home will be a decisive factor in this context. In the case of the Glass by Gaviota windows and doors, the firm combines the most innovative and sustainable materials with high technology. The new PVC windows and doors make use of Thermofibra and Forthex Technology, which guarantees a range of products recyclable and with minimal C02 emissions into the atmosphere. Finally, thanks to its high performance, a substantial improvement is generated in terms of thermal transmittance and lightness.• In addition, the curtains and enclosures that isolate different environments within the home also help to ventilate the house in summer by blocking the passage of the sun. At the same time, the coolness is preserved when there are air conditioning or ventilation units in operation. Aura, sliding and rotating glass enclosure system without glass frame, provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation 365 days a year. It also allows the possibility of folding the glass panels on one or both sides, to leave everything completely open, or to close them, without losing the panoramic views thanks to the absence of vertical profiles. Other tips that help to keep the environment fresh and renewed inside of the home• Opting for sustainable and innovative solutions at home should be complemented with the use of soft, light-colored fabrics such as linen or fine cotton or silk, in textiles such as conventional curtains, sofas or cushions.• If you have ceiling fans (they save more energy than air conditioning), should be located in such a way that they rotate counterclockwise. Thus, it will drive down a current of air that will promote cooling the environment.• Finally, the placement of green leafy plants in strategic points of the home can also greatly favor this regard.Thanks to these tips and the architectural solutions of the firm, focused on comfort and sustainability, without losing sight of elegance, this summer the high temperatures will be "a little" more bearable.
