Want your home to cool off quicker, have a more efficient air conditioning system, and save money on your energy bills? Here are six tips for accomplishing said goals.
Close the Shades
If your home gets a lot of sunlight, your air conditioning system will have to work harder in order to keep your home feeling cool. Since the sun’s rays will heat up your home, consider closing the curtains or the shades to keep it from shining through your windows. You don’t need to make your home dark; simply adjusting the shades slightly will do wonders.
Cook at Night
Cooking and baking can really contribute to the warmth in your kitchen. Consider cooking in the evening when it is already cool outside. If you do need to cook during the day, use an exhaust fan to move the hot air outside.
Insulate Your Home
Insulating your home is not just for keeping your home warm during the winter. Proper insulation can also prevent cool air from escaping and warm air from entering during the summer. Make sure the doors and windows are properly sealed too!
Oftentimes, the reason you are sweating away is not because of the temperature itself but because of the extreme humidity. If you keep the air in your home dry, you will often feel a lot better. Use a dehumidifier to dry out your home.
Get a Tune-up
It’s important that you get a regular tune-up to make sure that your AC system is working properly. This way, you can spot any issues and have them repaired right away. We encourage you to contact us.
