Top 5 Tips to Beat the Summer Heat

Summer is here and the heat is on. I am sure we are all feeling it in the rise of our electric bills. Here are some tips that will help you beat the heat and keep your cooling costs down.

  1. Check your windows. Keep your curtains closed and your blinds turned the correct way—especially during the hottest part of the day. Turn your blind slats up with the rounded side facing out. This moves the heat up and helps keeps your home cooler.
  2. Adjust your ceiling fan rotation. Change your ceiling fan to rotate counterclockwise. This will push cool air down, creating a wind chill effect for your own comfort, without affecting the room’s temperature.
  3. Keep interior doors open. Closing the interior doors in your home can increase your air conditioner’s energy consumption! It will increase the pressure in the room, which will force conditioned air out of any small cracks or openings around the room’s windows, walls, ceiling, and floor. It is better to leave the doors open for the best circulation and to save on energy costs!
  4. Turn on your exhaust fans. Exhaust fans are great to use while cooking or showering, as they pull the heat and humidity into the vent and help protect your home from humidity damage. Whether you’re cooking, showering, or resting, use your exhaust fans to keep yourself and your home cooler.
  5. Use large appliances sparingly. Large appliances require a lot of energy and produce a lot of extra heat. Try using them during the cooler times of the day, if possible.

Pat, have to give your post a different twist --- it was 99 degrees in Denver when I left.  Go to Wyoming and Idaho --- in the morning it was in the low 50's, and only in the mid-80's at the high during the day.   Heaven!
