How to Keep Your House Cool the Hot Hawaii Summer

Just bought a home in Hawaii home wondering how you are going to keep it cool in this record breaking heat? Here are some tips to keep your home cool this summer!
August 09, 2019


The high Hawaii temperatures this summer are great for beach weather but are putting a strain on our electric bills and our wallets. If you are thinking about becoming a homeowner on Maui, make sure to check out our real estate listings in South Maui. Maybe take a look at some of favorites like houses for sale in Wailea Kialoa or beachfront Mana Kai condos and see what’s out there. But before you do, learn how you can help stay cool in this hot summer heat!

It's only the middle of summer and, according to a recent news article in the Maui News, the heatwave has broken 52 records so far. July has created the most significant demand so far, according to Maui Electric Company representatives, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. The heatwave began in April when eight record-breaking days occurred in Kahului. In May 13 records were broken, and June had the most so far with 18 highs.

So with that being said, you’re probably racking your brain on how to stay cool in your Maui home while also saving money. Well, if you need some tips on how to keep your house at a reasonable temperature this year then read on.

Keep Your Blinds Closed

Having your curtains open invites more sunlight, which can inadvertently impact the temperatures of your home. Get in the routine of keeping the blinds closed during the morning and until the late afternoon for better results.

Keep Your Doors and Windows Open

This may be a no brainer for some of you, but sometimes we forget how easy it can be to stay cool just by merely remembering to open the windows and doors. Let those tradewinds crossvent and help in cooling your Maui house down.

Stay Hydrated!

Sometimes it’s not even the temperature of the house that’s warm; it’s you! That’s why it’s essential to stay hydrated to help keep your body at a nice and cold temperature.

Cook Outside, Not Inside

Why make the whole house hot with the heat from the oven when it’s summer, and you could be grilling outdoors anyway? Try it out next time you get hungry.

Plant Shade

Planting shade trees and bushes around your house will help to keep the temperatures cool inside. It’s a natural way to chill things out a little bit and can even be done decoratively and stylishly.

Those are some of our best tips for how to keep your house cool this hot Hawaii summer. If you have any more suggestions or are in the market for a new home in Maui, make sure to contact us. We are always ready, willing, and able to be of assistance and can’t wait to hear from you. Have a great week, and stay cool!
