How to Beat the Summer Heat | Eastbrook Homes
With the heat index climbing up and over the 100-degree mark in West Michigan several times in the last few weeks, we thought it would be good to talk about great ways to stay cool here at Eastbrook Homes. Whether you live in West Michigan, Greater Lansing, Michigan, or Auburn, Alabama there are ways to keep yourself cool, and ways to keep your house cool. We’ll throw in a little of both.
At Eastbrook Homes, we are committed to building energy efficient homes for our owners, and for the environment. We have even developed our own standards and building techniques to ensure all of our homes reduce energy use, and also energy costs, for new homeowners.
Our Eastbrook Energy Efficiency (E3) techniques combine processes and materials to ensure your home keeps the temperatures you want inside, and the temperatures you don’t, out. As part of our E3 techniques, our construction process includes sealing off the little cracks and leaks so your home keeps the cool air in all summer long.
We also use the best new window technology, insulation materials, and other details that combine to reduce the total cost of your home’s energy use. Eastbrook Homes can even cut your energy bills by as much as 1/3 when compared to many existing homes.
If your favorite way to spend a hot summer afternoon is inside with a cold drink and your feet up, your new Eastbrook Home will ensure you stay cool and comfortable. You can learn more about our E3 building techniques in the Eastbrook University, or by clicking Here.
If the heat doesn’t keep you indoors this summer, then here are some great ways to stay cool and have some fun outside.
Many of our Eastbrook Communities are built around lakes, or near them. Although some of the community lakes are not meant for swimming, we do have other great all-sports lakes to fit active lifestyles. And, in many cases there are plenty of places to swim or enjoy other water sports nearby.
In West Michigan, there is no shortage of water-related activities. With Lake Michigan and its beautiful coastline within easy reach, boating, swimming, and sports like waterskiing and wakeboarding are easy to enjoy all summer.
Some of our Eastbrook Homes communities are built around all-sport lakes too. Homeowners in Placid Waters, Tannery Bay, and Wabasis Shores, for example, have the extra benefit of living on or near a beautiful body of water that supports a wet and wild lifestyle. Boating, swimming, and fishing could be accessible right in your backyard.
Other Eastbrook communities, such as Carlisle Crossings, Prairie Winds, and Lowing Woods, have beautiful community pools available to residents too. Those are not the only Michigan communities with pools – you can also find a beautiful place to swim at Macatawa Legends, Hathaway Lakes, and Village Place.
In Auburn, Alabama, The Preserve includes a beautiful pool as well. You might not be able to jet ski on these waters, but an afternoon dip will go a long way towards keeping you and your friends or family cool and comfortable this summer. There aren’t a lot of better ways to spend an afternoon than sitting by the pool.
If water is an important part of your lifestyle, contact the Eastbrook Homes team and let us help you find the perfect home and community to fit your wants and needs. At Eastbrook Homes, we can help keep you cool, and keep your energy costs down too.
