From lamps to your TV, heat-emitting appliances that turn off in hot weather

BRITS are being attacked by a brutal heatwave this week – and our household appliances could make the situation worse.

Appliances that need to be plugged into the mains tend to generate quite a bit of heat, making a room even hotter on scorching days.

This is especially true if they are in a small space with little ventilation, e.g. B. in a study.

All devices emit some energy in the form of heat, but some are bigger culprits than others.

This is because they are not very energy efficient, meaning they release more waste energy.

Lighting (especially incandescent and halogen), televisions, dishwashers, stoves and refrigerators are among the worst offenders.

Washing machines, tumble dryers and desktop PCs also give off a lot of heat.

Make sure you don’t use items like your washing machine and dishwasher on the hottest days.

It may also be worth unplugging devices that you have on standby during the day, like TVs.

Not only do these cool your home, but they can also save you some money on your electricity bills.

Of course, you can’t turn off ALL your appliances — at least not without spoiling all the food in your fridge.

But anything you can avoid as a UK brace for the hottest day of the year will help keep your home cool.

You can also try a cool electric fan hack to combat the rising mercury.

Your fan is designed to move air around the room by sucking it in from the back and blowing it out at the front.

This keeps us cool as the fan’s faster-moving air pushes away the warmer air that’s in contact with our skin.

It helps us feel cooler as moisture in the form of sweat on our skin evaporates faster in the presence of air.

One way to make the air feel even COOLER is to place a bowl of ice in front of the fan.

As it evaporates, the vapor rises in front of the fan where it forms a nice cool breeze that’s blown through the room.
