Keeping your Summer “Cool”

Did you know that most summer heat is contributed by the sun shining through the windows, heat that builds in the attic, and heat from appliances and lights?

  • Close the curtains and windows during the day.
  • Open windows at night to enjoy cool evening air as well as remove humidity.
  • Use landscaping as an effective way of shading windows.
  • Try to avoid heating your home with appliances, like the oven and clothes dryer.
  • Attic ventilation improves comfort levels year round.
  • Exhaust fans and dehumidifiers in bathrooms and above stoves reduce humidity.
  • Central air conditioning is more efficient than several window units.
  • Try to install your air conditioner in a shaded area. This can reduce energy use by 5%.
  • Even with air conditioning, ceiling and portable fans will make you feel cooler and reduce the amount of time you need to run your air conditioner.
  • Clean the coils on your air conditioner with a vacuum cleaner.
  • Make sure the filter in your air conditioner is clean. Replace disposable filters every 1-2 months.
  • Use a programmable thermostat for central air conditioners
  • Don’t cool the house when no one is home.
  • If you are using a central air conditioner, close the vents in rooms not being used.
