Summer is here. If you are lucky enough to have a balcony in your home, it is imperative to keep it at a bearable temperature, in order to cool yourself in the open air, and above all, not to let the heat into your home. Here are our tips and tricks to keep freshness on your balcony!

Tip 1: to keep your balcony cool, create maximum shade

For all the openings in your residence, and specifically for the window or the bay window that opens onto your balcony, it is obviously preferable to have external (or interior) blinds or shutters (preferably rolling shutters). If this is your case, close them during the day and open them in the evening to circulate fresh air. A awning or an outdoor canvas blind, installed above your opening, is ideal for protecting your terrace from the sun's rays.

Tip n ° 2: for a cool balcony, think of specific installations

If you are not equipped with blinds or shutters, opt for a sun visor, a screen (screen, plant wall, etc.) or an awning. It's up to you to choose the type of protection for your facade according to the exposure of your building. There is also the principle of the overhang, which consists in providing shade on your balcony, by preventing the glass from heating over a greater width. But pay attention to the reflection of the rays on the floor of your terrace!

You can also buy plants that will absorb heat, and place them on your balcony or in front of a bay window, or else create a hedge at the railing for example.

Tip # 3: strategically install air conditioning

If you choose the more radical method of air conditioning, consider positioning your system properly. Knowing that it is the outside air which dissipates the heat of your interior, it is preferable to install the condenser of your air conditioner on your balcony. If this is not possible, prefer a model of air conditioning with water cooling.
