Is 2024 Going to be the Wettest UK Summer?

Is 2024 Going to be the Wettest UK Summer?

Entering the Summer months is always a challenge. Whilst it can be exciting (warmer weather, outdoor activities and more) it can also be a huge strain when it comes to maintaining home comfort. And with so many people predicating turbulent, more sporadic weather this year, Summer 2024 in the UK may be a lot more challenging than previously anticipated. Enjoying the Summer is a must, but with more and more people in the UK being more likely to be indoors this Summer, getting your home prepared for the event is essential. Especially considering that many of the challenges that you're likely to face over the coming months can be so easily rectified. Today, we're going over all of the basics of home comfort during a UK Summer but with a 2024 twist on the usual proceedings.

Is Summer 2024 UK Going to be Miserable?

Now there's no saying how nice or how miserable this Summer is going to be in the UK. In fact, most established predictions indicate that, on the whole, Summer 2024 is going to be nice and warm this year. This comes off the back of April 2024 being the 11th month in a row to be the hottest on record. Realistically, although we can predict the weather- the weather is the weather. And the weather can be really unpredictable in the UK. How unpredictable can the UK weather be? Well; whilst some areas can see gleaming, glistening sunshine accented by the sweet smell of blossoming flowers and sunscreen, other areas in the UK can see blankets of rain, hail and thunder punctuated by gale force winds. If you live outside of the UK, it may seem far fetched. If you live in the UK- you know what I'm talking about.

The most important thing though; don't let the weather ruin your Summer. Regardless of where you live in the UK, there's absolutely no reason to let whatever mother nature can throw at you, stop you from enjoying your day. When you're out and about and soaking up the sun (or lack there of in some cases) what you're doing takes priority. But when you're at home, relaxing after a long work day or just putting your feet up over the weekend, that's when the Summer weather starts to become a problem. In the past, the solution was very clear. If you're getting too hot at home, a nice, cooling fan would help you get your home comfort would get you through the worst brunt of the Summer months. But heat isn't the only thing we need to look out for this Summer. If the experts are to be believed, the UK will still have a proper Summer- but not without a few very British quirks.

The Best Way to Tackle Heat at Home

Traditionally, finding the correct appliances for your home has depends on the seasons. In the past, we could predict our home comfort by the seasons; expecting and preparing for heat in the Summer and frosty cold in the Winter. That being said, 2024 is proving to be anything but predictable. With intense rainfall predicted in parts of the UK throughout the Summer months, it isn't enough to simply rely on the staple Summer home appliances like cooling fans and air conditioning.

That being said, the Summer is always going to be the Summer. And despite predictions of heavy rainfall in Summer 2024, there's no denying that we're still going to see plenty of sunshine and warm weather. Even though Summer 2024 is predicted to (ironically) be unpredictable; it's safe to assume that the vast majority of us will be seeing glorious sunshine and toasty weather throughout the months of June, July and August. And, with hot weather on the horizon, a whole new challenge presents itself. Staying comfy at home. A simple-sounding task that has a lot more challenges than meets the eye.

Heat can be one of the biggest detriments to your home comfort during any Summer; but this year, with the swinging predictions- it could be even more damaging to your home than you may think. The first line of defence against overwhelming heat is a great electric cooling fan. Not only are cooling fans a tried and tested method of dealing with excess heat in the home, but (compared to air conditioning) electric cooling fans tackle the Summer heat at the root cause. That root cause being a lack of air flow within the home.

The Best Cooling Fan for the UK Summer 2024

When it comes to keeping cool there's no better way to beat the heat than with a relaxing, soothing fan. Not only do fans keep you cool in your home, but a great fan is also able to remove areas of stagnant, hot air that is at the heart of the problems of fighting overheating within the home. Whilst this is true for any room, it becomes especially true when the rooms in question have plenty of furniture such as a bedroom or living room; and also if you need cooling in a small room. This is because hot, stagnant air can stick into nooks and crannies and keep your home roasting hot throughout the Summer. This is the core problem when it comes to keeping cool at home during the Summer months. 

All of this is why an electric cooling fan is the best solution to overwhelming home heat during the Summer. And there's no better example of an air flow enhancing, full coverage electric cooling fan than the Senelux remote-controlled tower fan. This tower fan is one of the best fans currently available in the UK. With a complete range of cooling thanks to the slim-line but tall design of this great fan, your home will be able to get some fantastic air motion, turning those stuffy, clammy indoor locations into free-breathing, cool and comfy areas for you to relax in this Summer.

When it comes to picking out your Summer time home fan, you'll know that there are plenty to choose from. From incredible and versatile battery powered fans designed for portability all the way to those classic, heavy duty chrome fans that can run the gauntlet and last for years to come. However you choose to go about providing your home with that signature cooling, make sure that the fan that you want is right for your home. What makes the Senelux remote-controlled tower fan so great is that it not only keeps your home cool no matter the weather and no matter the air flow; but the Senelux tower fan is also fantastic for any home in terms of modern home decorations and space requirements thanks to that signature tower fan design.

Preparing for the Summer 2024 UK

Why are electric fans so important throughout the summer months? Well, whilst it is true that the air that is produced by an electric cooling fan will keep you cooled- this is not the only advantage of having a fan in your home. The real cause of overheating within the home is actually excess pockets of warm air that can linger in corners, nooks and crannies. This means that rooms with additional furniture (such as living rooms and bedrooms) are most likely to be excessively hot during the summer. If you really want to beat the summer heat, then you need to confront the heat-traps in your own home.

Using an electric fan increases air flow throughout your entire home. This makes you home cooler, less stuffy and more breathable and comfortable. However, the type of fan that you need can be a little bit more difficult to come to terms with. Whilst something like the Senelux chrome floor fan has incredibly high air circulation and unrivalled cooling power, raw cooling power may not be the solution that your home needs. Instead, for those areas where heat can be a major problem within the home, a little bit less power may need to be switched out for more technique and reach. That is where a Senelux tower fan can make all of the difference when it comes to cooling the problematic areas of your home such as bedrooms and living rooms.

One of the UK's Best Tower Fans

Where a Senelux tower fan really shines is with it's design. As you can probably tell; a tower fan has a taller but slimmer design compared to traditional cooling fans. However, instead of simply being a unique design choice, there is a brilliant advantage that a tower fan can bring to the table when it comes to truly modern home cooling. Not only does a tower fan offer the cooling power of the strongest fans, but thanks to the taller design of the fan (as well as the intricate stacking of the internal fan blades,) the air flow produced by a tower fan has a significantly better reach that is specifically designed to start removing that hot, stagnant air from your home- where ever that air hot air may be lurking within your home.

With a Senelux tower fan, not only do you get the power of a large fan and the reach of a tower fan, but thanks to the automatic oscillation option that improved reach is enhanced. Instead of being an additional, passive feature; the cooling air flow of the Senelux tower fan takes on a more active role within your home. Keeping you cool with a gentle breeze whilst also removing those hot pockets of air from you entire home with extended reach and automatic rotation.
