Hot and bothered in the summer heat?
We've got 20 refreshing ideas to help you keep your cool and beat the heat this summer.
No AC at home? Start with the simplest solution.
Explore air conditioners with innovative features, like having a fan, dehumidifier and air conditioning all in one!
Leave the searing heat to your grill. Chill out on your deck or patio — and outside the kitchen. Appliances like your oven or stove give off heat and raise temps indoors.
Live the sweet life! From afternoon snacks to morning shakes, a blender or juicer offers icy relief when you need it.
Lots of lawn and no shade? A gorgeous gazebo transforms your backyard into a breezy outdoor living space.
Hide from the heat without losing rays. Add a pergola above your deck or patio with easy-to-control canopies and covers, perfect for any setting.
Branch out! Start planting today for natural leafy shade tomorrow. Harvest apples and pears, or admire foliage outside your window. A well-placed tree will keep out sun exposure so you stay cooler indoors. Visit a Lowe's Garden Centre near you

Don't hesitate; insulate! Light filtering or insulated curtains and drapes help to block the sun and sweltering heat.
Stressed over a sticky, humid summer? Dehumidifiers pull out excess moisture from the air so you don't have to break a sweat.
Keep your cool during a heat wave. When temperatures fluctuate, smart thermostats are automated to help you stay in your comfort zone.
Turn, turn, turn. Adjust the direction of your ceiling fan as the seasons change. Rotate counterclockwise to pull up hot summer air and enjoy a satisfying breeze!
Don’t wait for a rainy day! Patio umbrellas are must-haves for sunny wining and dining. Keep the conversation going after dark, under the glow of solar-powered LED lights.
Dress to impress! Add blinds and shades to accentuate your room, insulate hot and cold, and filter light.
Here’s a bright idea: Prevent heat build-up by installing energy-efficient lighting! Low-heat CFL or LED bulbs are best.
Picturesque or practical. Why not both? Create a beautiful display with window film that also keeps it cool indoors.
Reach for the sky! Pounce on inflatables and bouncers that boost summer activities with oversized fun.
Ready to melt? Stock your freezer for cold comfort to survive hot summer nights. Before tucking in, stick bed sheets inside a bag and let them sit for five minutes or less.
It’s easy breezy. Trust portable fans to blow off mosquitoes so you can focus on more lounging, less swatting. Don’t oscillate over this hot weather essential.
Getting through the summer beyond air conditioning is surprisingly easier than you think. While there’s nothing better than the real thing, now you know dozens of ways to keep your cool. Enjoy!
