Have a closed terrace with glass curtains is a fantastic idea to close these spaces and power during most of the year. Especially, in winter, spring and autumn. But in summer, things change, since the heat and the sun can make it unfeasible to be in this outdoor area.
Even so, there are several tricks that can help us reduce the temperature of the glazed terracesas they tell us from the firm specialized in Lumon glass curtains.
Establish a routine for ventilation
The main thing to lower the temperatures of a glazed terrace is to establish a routine for open the windows and ventilate every night in order to renew the air. Although we are lazy, we must comply with this routine on a daily basis. And to optimize and for this routine to be effective, we must know what time is better to ventilate at night and early in the morningand until what time can we have the terrace open before the heat starts to hit hard.
Blinds, the best option to protect your terrace from the heat
If you want to lower the temperature of the glazed terrace (and incidentally, the interior of your house), placing blinds is the best solution. If your terrace hits the sun hard, without a doubt it is best to install opaque blinds.
Install a fan or portable air conditioner
If you want to take advantage of your glazed terrace at any time of the day, you can install a fan (if it is a ceiling fan, better), or a portable air conditioning machine.
Plants decorate, help us connect with nature, and also provide us with a extra moisture. Study the orientation of your terrace, and the species that will best withstand the existing conditions on it. Remember that there are plants that need more shade, others that need direct sun to survive. In addition to having plants in pots and planters, you can also choose hanging plants, or create a vertical garden.
Bet on a refreshing deco
To decorate your glazed terrace, it is best to go for light colors that help reduce the sensation of heat and also absorb less light. Also choose cotton and breathable fabrics, and avoid materials such as plastic, choosing material fibers or wood for the furniture.
Water always helps to lower the temperature
If you install some nebulizers you will be able to lower the temperature of your glazed terrace, generating a pleasant sensation of freshness by maintaining the level of humidity in the hottest hours of the day. Apart from the nebulizers to refresh the environment, you can also install a portable shower, or a hose (as long as you have a drain)
