Staying Cool Indoors

When the summer sun becomes unbearable, staying cool indoors is essential. While our apartment rentals do not allow for permanent or damaging alterations, there are still plenty of ways to beat the heat without compromising your living space. In this blog, we share some ideas:

  1. Embrace Natural Light: Keep your curtains or blinds closed during the hottest parts of the day to prevent heat from entering your apartment. As the sun sets, open them up to let in cooler evening breezes and natural light.
  2. Utilize Fans and Ventilation: Strategically place ceiling fans and portable fans in rooms where you spend the most time. They can help circulate air and create a cooling effect. Additionally, make use of ventilation systems to promote air circulation throughout your apartment.
  3. Create a DIY Cooling Station: For a refreshing cool-down, fill a shallow pan or bucket with cool water and place a towel or cloth in it. Sit in front of a fan and drape the damp cloth over yourself.

Eco-Friendly Ways to Stay Refreshed

In addition to staying cool, it's important to stay refreshed during the summer while being mindful of the environment. Here are some eco-friendly tips to beat the heat:

  1. Stay Hydrated with Infused Water: Instead of sugary drinks, opt for infused water. Add slices of fruits like lemon, cucumber, or mint leaves to your water pitcher for a refreshing and flavorful twist.
  2. Indoor Herb Garden: Cultivate a mini herb garden in your apartment. Not only will it add a touch of greenery, but herbs like mint, basil, and rosemary can also be used to make refreshing summer beverages.
  3. Energy-Efficient Appliances: Minimize energy consumption and reduce your carbon footprint by using energy-efficient appliances, such as air conditioners and fans.



As the summer heat rises, it's important to find ways to stay cool and refreshed without damaging your apartment rentals.

At Castellino at Laguna West Apartments, we prioritize your comfort and well-being. By implementing simple tips like utilizing fans, embracing natural light, and staying hydrated with infused water, you can enjoy a refreshing summer indoors.

Also, near the apartments, you can find restaurants, cafes, stores, parks, and a lake.
