How to keep mobile home cool in summer (simple and cheap hacks)

Living in a mobile home community offers many benefits, including affordable homeownership and excellent amenities like pools and recreational centers, which are perfect during summer. To learn more about this “lifestyle,” check out Country Squire Estates, a senior-friendly park that’s conveniently located in Sacramento, California. 


While it’s nice to take a dip in the community pool during the scorching summer heat, you also need to keep your mobile home cool. Fortunately, doing so does not entail expensive home renovation or buying more AC units. With just a little bit of ingenuity that promotes cross-ventilation and prevents heat buildup, you can create a comfortable home environment without breaking the bank.


Tips to keep your mobile home cool in summer


Continue reading below to learn more about how to keep your mobile home cool in summer without running up your utility bills.


Use thick and heavy curtains

Go for thicker, heavier curtains to block out the sun. However, opt for lighter fabrics because they reflect sunlight better than those with darker colors, which tend to absorb heat. 


For additional insulating effects, why not install heat-reducing window film that is not just cheap but also easy to apply (this is just a simple DIY project)? According to some studies, these special films can reduce up to 78% of the sun’s heat coming through the windows. 


Another thing to remember: During the summer months, keep your blinds, curtains and windows closed when the sun is shining, only opening them in the evening and at night. 


Replace your AC’s air filter


Because you’re going to use your AC more frequently during summer, make sure that you replace its dirty filters with new ones. But if you’re using a reusable one, clean it with warm water and mild soap and then rinse it thoroughly under running water. 


With a clean filter, you can make your AC more energy efficient and even extend its lifespan. 


Use indoor fans to promote cross ventilation


Open the windows in which the direction the breeze is flowing and position a fan (facing the room) as close as possible to it. Next, open the windows or doors to create a current of air across the room. 


Take note that you can only reap the benefits of cross ventilation if the outdoor air is cooler than your home’s and there is no significant air pollution outside. If not, you should close the windows and turn on your AC and ceiling fan. 


Your AC doesn’t have to be on full blast when you’re using a fan simultaneously since it also creates a cooling effect and spreads the cooler air across the room. 


Plan your cooking 


During the scorching summer heat, cooking can further aggravate the already intolerable temperature. For this reason, you may want to consider outdoor grilling and opt for microwavable foods. 


These are other hacks to prevent your kitchen from heating up your entire mobile home: 

  • Use fans or ventilation to eliminate heat and humidity.
  • Use an induction store.
  • Avoid using the oven as much as possible. But if you can’t avoid it, at least opt for dishes that require “low and slow” baking. 


Final word 


You don’t have to turn your AC on full blast and run up your utility bill just to create a comfortable environment during summer. With the simple hacks mentioned below, it’s possible to keep your mobile home cool at all times.

Living in Country Squire Mobile Home Park is an amazing experience, especially for a hardcore foodie. This manufactured home community in Sacramento, California is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is gradually emerging as a gastronomical hot spot. 


With an overwhelming number of food hubs, you might find it daunting to choose your next food trip, so we have decided to round up the top four Citrus Heights restaurants you should try. These food destinations are not just known for their scrumptious meal and hearty servings, but also for their reasonable prices. 

1. Texas Roadhouse

This town’s favorite serves all-American cuisine that leans more toward the Southwestern flavor. With their fall-off-the-bone ribs and juicy steaks that come with freshly made side dishes, they have become the go-to restaurant for anyone who needs to satiate his carnivorous cravings. 


Despite their hearty portions, the meals are reasonably priced, especially during their weekly special when steak is only $13.99.


Being the town’s favorite has its downside: The restaurant is often packed at dinner time, which makes it not the ideal place if you’re looking for something intimate. Nonetheless, even on a busy night, the wait isn’t that long, thanks to its friendly, attentive staff. 


If you’re into hearty, sinful meals and lively ambiance, the Texas Roadhouse should be your next food destination with its Texas-themed decor, impromptu singing, line dancers, and jukebox. 


Address: 6309 Sunrise Boulevard, Citrus Heights  Contact number: +1 916-726-7623

2. El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant

This family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant has been serving their patrons for more than 32 years with their made-from-scratch meals (literally no cans in their kitchen). While their menu has a long list of hearty, mouth-watering meals, they are most known for their carne asada, which is beef marinated and grilled, often served in thin strips either as a main course or a filling in burritos and tacos. 


Other signature dishes you may want to try: fajita and molcajete. But if you really want to splurge a little bit, we suggest that you visit them for a Sunday Brunch (9 am – 2 pm) and enjoy their buffet of chile verde, cheese enchiladas, beans, rice, horchata and mimosa, Mexican bread, and other pastries, chile colorado, taco bar, to name a few. 


Surprisingly, this well-loved Mexican food haven also caters to people with special diets with vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free meals. 


But as with any popular food destination, the waiting line is a bit long especially during their Sunday Brunch, so we suggest that you arrive early.

3. Felipe's Mexican Restaurant

Another popular Mexican food destination, Felipe’s is a family-owned business that has been serving its Citrus Heights patrons since 1983. Due to their success, the owners decided to open a second location in Folsom in February 2007.


For decades, the food restaurant has been well-loved by customers who want to taste authentic Mexican cuisine that is a bargain for the cost. They also have take-out and cater to parties, weddings, and conferences. 


Felipe’s is most famous for their combinaciones de la casa, which roughly translates to combinations of the house. They include refried beans, Spanish rice, special salsa, hot tortilla, homemade chips, and chiminga, which are beef chunks wrapped in an oversized flour tortilla deep-fried until golden brown and drizzled with sour cream, melted cheese, and guacamole. 


Even though the restaurant is tucked away in a shopping mall strip, it is often packed with people, and so the waiting might be a bit long unless you arrive early. 


Address: 959 Auburn Blvd, Citrus Heights

Contact: +1 916-722-5400

4. Sammy's Restaurant and Bar

Sammy’s is inside a casino building (Stone Creek Gambling Hall), making it a convenient food haven for gamblers. Nevertheless, their lamb ribs, duck tacos, Baba Ghanoosh with pita wedges, and New York-style pizzas are well-received even by non-gamblers who just want to satisfy their cravings. 


Compared to the previously mentioned restaurants, Sammy’s a little bit more pricey but still “reasonable,” especially their “small plates” which start at $3.  


Address: 6510 Antelope Rd, Citrus Heights

Contact: (Not Available)

Aside from the aforementioned food destinations, the Country Squire Mobile Home Park is also near Roseville’s malls, boutique shops, and theatres. But surprisingly, the mobile and manufactured home community has a small town “feel” as it is tucked away in a forested enclave of Arcade and Cripple Creeks.
