SMART Carpet and Flooring gives homeowners tips on best flooring options to keep homes cool

Summer is just starting to heat up, and for many homeowners, that means it’s time to check the air conditioning or drag out the box fans. Today, SMART Carpet and Flooring revealed another option for keeping cool, and it’s literally right under our feet.

“Flooring is often overlooked when it comes to cooling, but in reality, choosing the right flooring option can make the difference between living in discomfort when the temperature climbs and actually feeling like the home is a refuge from the heat,” said SMART Carpet and Flooring Product Manager Ken Lewis. “Our clients are often surprised at what a difference flooring can make in their comfort levels inside when it’s hot outside.”

SMART Carpet and Flooring’s top pick for a summertime sanctuary: Havermill half-inch-thick laminate plank by Mohawk, in contemporary “Sunbeam Acacia” color. The 5.25-inch-wide, 47.25-inch-long laminate planks are hand-scraped, giving the timeless look of wood floors but with a more durable finish, and lock snugly together with the Uniclick locking system for glueless installation.

It’s the thickness of Mohawk Havermill plank flooring, says SMART Carpet and Flooring, that makes it an ideal choice for keeping the home cooler in the summer months. The planks stay cool underfoot, unlike thinner laminates that can more easily absorb heat and feel warmer as the mercury rises. In contrast to other laminates, Mohawk Havermill’s acoustics are similar to those of real wood, giving the flooring a satisfying feel and sound underfoot.

There were many times that my husband and I wondered about how she could be so generous with her time and so accessible. She was always professional and organized and knew exactly what features we were looking for. Thank you, thank you, t…
