When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in La Porte, chances are that you may find yourself fantasizing about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly endless, steamy days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Lessen your use of appliances that generate heat. Of course you can’t completely stop using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses might help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during peak temperatures as your air conditioner will probably already be working hard to keep your home cool.
- Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a lot of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in La Porte, your home can warm up very quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just gone for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any unnecessary heat out.
- Use fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t lower the air temperature.
