Beat Summer Heat With These Tips
The summer is heating up! That bodes well for your plans to head to the pool or host a backyard barbecue, but it also likely has you sweating a little during the day. You may find yourself struggling to make the difficult decision between sweltering the days away or dishing out more for your electricity bill. The good news is there is a solution! To help you save on your electricity bill and still beat the summer heat, use these helpful tips for keeping your house cool.
- Rely On Ventilation: According to the experts at the Department of Energy, ventilation is the most affordable way to keep your home cool. Open windows across from each other to create a cross breeze through your home during the morning and the evening when temperatures are at their lowest.
- Fan Yourself: Ceiling fans are a great way to cool down when you are in a room, but make sure you turn them off when you leave. Fans cool people, but they will not bring down the temperature in a room and are consequently just a waste of energy for empty space.
- Avoid The Heat: You would never turn your heat on during the summer. Why would you turn on appliances that add heat? Avoid your oven (the crock pot and grill are great alternative) and air dry your clothes instead of using your dryer to minimize heat creation in your home.
