How can I cool my mobile homed during the summer season?
Let's start with the easiest and cheapest way to cool your mobile home in summer. With the first few tips, you can start lowering the temperature of your home, in just a few days, by yourself.
One of the cheapest and simplest solutions is to apply an insulating, anti-glare and private film in your mobile home. Window film is particularly useful for preventing the rays of light from your windows at sunrise and sunset.
The advantages of using window film
- Declines 70%+ of the sun’s heat
- Stops 70%+ of the sun’s glare
- keeps your home cool in the summer and keeps it warm in the winter.
- Easy to install
- You can remove and reuse most brands
Use a cool roof coating
In the summer months, the sun's rays shine more directly on the earth's surface. Naturally, this increases the temperature compared to other times of the year. One of the most effective ways to solve this problem is to give your house a cool roof covering. There are several advantages to investing in any type of roof covering:
- As a bonus, you improve the longevity and waterproofing of your home.
- The effects are immediate; your home will be cool the same day after applying the roof covering!
- It even has a significant impact on the temperature of your mobile home related to very costly cooling methods.
- You also do well to your neighbors and the environment.
There are two different types:
Roof covering in aluminized asphalt. This is the most common type of roof covering. It’s easier to install, and it sticks to everything, such as metal and asphalt roofs. This type of coating reflects about 60% of the sun's rays, and when dust collects on the sticky surface, it drops to 40%.
Elastomeric roof coating - This is a great option. A glossy white latex coating can reflect the sun's rays from 70% to 85%. As a result, you can save up to 10% to 20% on air conditioning costs. Suppliers approve the same application in two layers with 10 years of protection! More than metallic coatings.
