ORANGE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/27/12 -- Since the first Fourth of July was held at the White House in 1804 Americans have been rejoicing in historical fashion on our nation's birthday. This year, Budget Blinds® can help you stay cool and save energy at home while celebrating in comfort and style with smart window-covering solutions.
As people get ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, they are filled with the nostalgic thoughts of their ancestors who founded America. Modern day Americans continue being pioneers by becoming more environmentally conscience and using energy efficient green products. This movement has become a large part of the window coverings industry, and Budget Blinds is here to help you convert your house into an eco-friendly and energy saving home. Cooling your house with screens, retractable awnings, and window film are three energy efficient solutions that offer you different ways to stay cool in the summer environment with the added bonus of relaxing inside while still experiencing the excitement occurring outside.
Here's a few extra ways to keep cool on the Fourth of July and also throughout summer:
•Wearing loose-fitting, especially cotton, clothing will keep you cooler than most synthetics •Small battery powered fans with a mister that clip onto a belt buckle are perfect for a quick spritz (store in the freezer for an extra chilly blast) •Take short baths or showers with cool or lukewarm water •Keep bottles of water in the freezer; grab one when you're ready to go outside. As the ice melts, you'll have a supply of cold water with you to drink or pour inside your hat or over your head to cool you down. Toss some frozen bottles in the coolers as well, they will keep other drinks cool and when they thaw they will be perfect for drinking! •Try storing lotions or Aloe Vera in the refrigerator to use on hot, scorched skin •Fans can help keep your guests happy by circulating air and making the air feel cooler, even in an air-conditioned house
