Beat the Heat!

We’re ALMOST there – summer is sooo close to being over. In these last couple of weeks, here are some pointers to remember:

  1. Block the sun – make sure you have curtains drawn during the heat of the day, blinds closed when possible.
  2. Clean your replace your filters! You’ll definitely notice a difference in the temp of the AC
  3. Make sure all of your windows and doors are shut tight – including your fireplace damper! We don’t want that AC escaping.
  4. Drink water! Always keep water within reach to stay hydrated.
  5. Run ceiling fans – these help distribute the air more evenly in the rooms of your home.
  6. Turn things off that cause heat – use stove and dryer dishwasher at night or not at all – make sure your computer sleeps within 15 minutes of not using it, etc. Why not just grill out? Your energy bill will love you for it.
  7. Dress for the weather!
  8. Wear sandals – a little known face, as you sweat and it evaporates, it cools your body.
  9. Turn off the lights! Watts = heat
  10. Just chill – let your mind wander – and chillax…as my daughter would say 😉
