Beat the Summer Heat

Let MJH Help You Stay Cool This Summer

July 12, 2017

South Florida summers can really make us reconsider calling the Sunshine State “paradise.” The notorious myth to raise your A/C when leaving the house in the summertime can cause an increase in your electric bill because the A/C system must work twice as long to lower the indoor temperature. Fortunately, MJH has come up with ways to beat the heat without breaking the bank.

Low-E glass

Low-E not only provides a contemporary feel to a home, but also reflect the sun’s UV rays away from the home lowering temperatures indoors. This glass can also provide more privacy because they are difficult to see through. Low-E glass is available in clear, gray, or green and are a great touch to doors and windows.



It’s time to box those wool sheets up in the attic with the winter coats- that is if you have winter coats. Using cotton sheets will make a significant difference in body temperature when you sleep because the fabric breathes. This is crucial especially with the Florida humidity.


Ceiling Fans

Who said ceiling fans were outdated? MJH incorporates stunning contemporary ceiling fans into their Florida homes because the added air circulation really makes a difference in the summer. Ceiling fans can also be aesthetically pleasing in bare rooms.


Door and Window Seals

Cracks in seals of doors or windows are sneaky culprits. Cool air from indoors escapes outdoors, and hot air enters the home. This can make it very difficult for an air conditioning system to keep your home cool. Luckily, Beyond the Build (BTB) provides maintenance services that check door and window seals throughout the year to avoid this issue.



Sometimes it’s better to embrace the problem rather than run from it. Enjoy the summer heat by taking a dip in your swimming pool. MJH knows the value of enjoying both the inside and outside of your home so we make sure that all backyards are well equipped for the summer!
