How to optimize the use of cooling:
- Set the thermostat to the desired indoor temperature: the set temperature should be lower than the current temperature.
- Keep the sun out of the house by closing blinds or curtains as much as possible, even during the day.
- Keep windows and doors closed as much as possible. This will keep your home cool and comfortable longer. If you do want to open windows, choose to do so at a cool time of day such as early in the morning or late at night.
- Cooling through underfloor heating is not air conditioning. Cooling through the floor works much slower and can only cool a few degrees compared to the outside temperature. So the indoor temperature is not a determining factor. At extremely high temperatures, it can therefore not really become as pleasantly cool inside as with air conditioning. Therefore, it is precisely then that it is important to close the windows and curtains so that the indoor temperature does not rise too much.
