How to avoid the hot sun in the summer for the west-facing balcony
Summer comes, the heat covers the roads to every corner of the city. Especially because of that, houses in the street are often hotter than houses in the countryside when covered under shady trees.
However, wherever you are, the house in the West is also hotter than the other directions, encountering the phenomenon of sunlight that makes people in the house feel much more uncomfortable. So how to better resist the heat of the west-facing house in the summer?
There are many ways to combat the heat of a west-facing house to improve living space, reduce glare and discomfort. With Ms. Minh Ngoc (currently living in Ho Chi Minh City), she applies the method of growing her favorite plants and regularly uses them to cool and regulate the air, preventing the heat from entering the house.
Specifically, the balcony of Ms. Minh Ngoc’s family has an area of 1mx3m and a height of 2.8m. Ngoc put a lot of pots of wheat grass to both prevent hot light from entering the house and regulate the cooler air.
Ms. Minh Ngoc also said:I find growing wheatgrass is very simple, just watering enough will grow well. Potted plants help keep your balcony cool because of air conditioning, when harvested, you can use it to process drinking water or food to improve health. I usually grind wheatgrass to make smoothies, but I can’t even harvest it in time“.
The price of buying wheatgrass seeds to grow at home is not too high, only 29k/500 grams. Plastic pots for growing plants cost only 21k/piece, 10kg of clean soil costs only 23k, 1kg of organic fertilizer to fertilize plants costs 25k and you already have enough materials to make it yourself at home.
With this simple and useful way, you can also apply it at home to make the family balcony space cooler and greener. In addition, if you like to grow any other clean vegetables, you can change, the cooling and heat reduction effect will still be effective.
