Beat the heat this summer with a few quick tips. Here are some ways to keep your home cool, without overworking your AC.
Window Tints: Window tints or films are a great solution for homes with many windows. A window tint can help temper the effects of the sun and keep the heat out of your home.
Keep Windows and Doors Closed: Constantly reopening doors and windows isn’t just letting the hot outside air into your home. It also affects the efficiency of your AC unit. Your AC runs by continuously sensing the ambient air temperature. Opening windows causes sudden changes in your home’s temperature and your AC is always trying to adjust.
Use or Install Ceiling Fans: Ceiling fans can compensate for high temperatures. If you keep your thermostat set slightly higher than usual a fan will help keep the hot air from rising. This then helps your AC kick into gear.
