How to stay cool on a leather couch
1) Maintaining the room temperature
Maintaining the room temperature is the one way to keep your leather couch cool and make you not feel the heat during the summer days when you sit or even sleep on it,
Here comes the important part, how to maintain the room temperature,
Here are two ways,
Method 1 : Adding Air conditioner
The first way is installing an air conditioner or even an air cooler will keep your room cool which helps the leather couch to be cool, this is very costly process and are not a good suggestion for the low class people,
Method 2: Adding double exhaust fan
The second way is using a double exhaust fan at the windows will make the process easier and it is very affordable too,
I did this experiment myself and got a good result, what i did was i fitted one exhaust fan in the usual direction inside the house and fitted another fan in the opposite direction on the outside of the window,
The exhaust fan inside blow away the hot air from the room outside and the outer exhaust fan pushes the coolest atmospheric air inside so the room temperature is balanced now and it makes the leather couch cool in the summer,
The only disadvantage of this method is it brings in the dust from outside.
2) Choosing a light colored leather
In general light colors reflects the heat and dark colors absorbs the heat, so choosing a light colored leather might save you a little bit,
Choosing the light colored leather will not make the couch completely cool, but you can experience the difference between the dark colored couch and light colored couch in terms of color difference.
3) Keeping it away from the sun
Exposing the leather couch to the sun not only damage it but also makes it hot in the summer days so try to avoid it keeping straight to the doorway or the windows where the sun enters in,
At least try to add curtains to the windows and the door so that it protect your leather couch from the sun.
4) Adding blankets on the couch
Add a towel or a blanket on the leather couch before you sit or even sleep on it, as mentioned already the fabric absorbs less heat than the leather,
Or add fabric couch cover in the summer time and remove it during the winter to get some hot sleep.
5) Wearing a cotton dress may help
While you lie on the leather couch, don’t lie on it with your naked body, wear a cotton shirt or a T-Shirt so that your sweat does not reach the couch, which helps you to stay away from the sweat mess.
