31 Jul Keep Your Home Cool This Summer
Hot summer days can make your home feel uncomfortable. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce humidity and keep your house at the perfect temperature! In addition to keeping your air conditioner in great shape, here are a few ways to keep your home cool.
Tips to Keep Your Home Cool:
- Use the Shades – Close the windows during the day to keep the heat out. Depending on where the sun’s rays hit the hardest, keep your shades drawn during that time.
- Limit Appliance Use – Cooking creates a greater heat load in the house, but appliances like washing machines, dryers, and dish washers also generate a considerable amount of hot air.
- Ventilate – On cooler days, use window fans! When it gets hot out again, close the windows and keep the cool air inside.
- Insulate – A well-insulated home will help keep warm air outside and cool air inside. Check the insulation around air ducts in the basement and attic, as well as the insulation around windows, doors and crawl spaces.
