The warmer weather is here, and you can beat the heat with these valuable, home cooling tips.
- Keep your drapes closed. When it comes to cooling tips, this one is by far the easiest for homeowners. When your drapes and shutters are left open during peak sunlight hours, they let a lot of heat inside your home. Though the sunshine is beautiful, it comes through the window and makes your house warmer, which is great in the winter, but not conducive to the additional heat that summer months bring. Keeping your blinds drawn will in turn keep your house cooler, give your air conditioning system a break and help keep your energy costs down as a result.
- Invest in ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are great in summer months. They help keep the cool air circulating and increase the effect of your air conditioning system. Ceiling fans are a year-round investment as they help push heat down from the ceiling in the cooler months. This pointer in our cooling tips advice is of value for all seasons.
- Check your weather. Check your local weather, and be aware of the temperatures outside. On cooler evenings, you may want to open your upper-floor windows to allow the cooler air to circulate. Closing these windows in the early morning before the day warms up will help to keep the air cooler in your home. Your local weather man is the king of cooling tips, just tune in and find out what the temperatures will be like for the next few days in your area, and open your windows accordingly.
