Summer is just around the corner and when it gets hot outside, it may be harder to cool down your home. Even though you may have a central air system in place, incorporating these tips along with your home cooling system will not only keep you comfortable, but you’ll save you money on your energy bills too!
While we all love to let natural light into our home, keeping your windows uncovered during peak sun hours can increase temperatures inside your home. This can cause your A/C system to run that much harder. Investing in thermal curtains can help save you money in the long run.
Take Cooking Outdoors
Cooking indoors during hot weather can generate a lot of unwanted heat. Try creating dishes with a crock pot instead or use your BBQ grill more. Not only will you stay cool inside, but you’ll probably eat healthier as well. It’s a win-win!
Hang Your Clothes Outside
We all love the convenience of using the dryer after washing our clothes, but dryers can be a huge heat generator. Instead, try going old school and hang your clothes outside to dry. Not only will you save money on your energy bill, but you’ll save on having to purchase dryer sheets and it’s better for the environment too!
Check Your Ceiling Fans
Set your ceiling fans to rotate counter-clockwise. This reverses the blades to push the heat up to the ceiling which will keep you cool and comfortable.
