Tips For A Cooler Home

In our last blog, we discussed some tips to save you money on your energy bills. In this blog, we want to go over some tips to keep your home cooler in general. Like everyone that has a cooling unit installed in their home, we want to stay as cool as possible. There aren’t that many people out there that enjoy sweating in the hot sun.

Unit Placement

If you have the opportunity to choose where your AC unit is installed, choose a shady spot near your house. If the unit stays cool, then it doesn’t have to work so hard to cool the inside of your home. If you can’t choose where the unit goes, you can always create shade. Plant a shrub or tree or build something around it that allows the unit to get air and stay out of the sun.

Use Blinds

If your windows have blinds, keep them down and keep the heat from the sun from coming in your house. If you are able to, you can also use external shades to stop the sun from the outside.

Clean Filter

When you regularly clean and replace your air filters, then your unit can work more efficiently and produce cooler air. Cleaning the dust out of your filters can not only help you stay cool but will save you money on your energy bill.

TV Placement

Be careful not to set up your televisions or lamps or anything else that puts off heat, next to your thermostat. The heat can make your thermostat think that it is still hot in your house and will work harder to get your home cooled. This will exhaust the AC unit and cost you more.
