The warmth of summer can be a wonderful feeling, especially after a long winter. However, with the summer months can come extreme levels of heat. This can make it more difficult to keep your house cool and give you that much-needed respite from the scorching temperatures outside. We know how frustrating this can get, which is why First Premier Home Warranty has put together a list of tips to keep your house cool in extreme heat.
- Utilize your air conditioning
Your biggest combat against the seemingly endless heat of summer will be your air conditioning system, which helps to keep your house cool by giving you a constant stream of cold air within your home. To ensure your house stays cool, you will want to check your air conditioning unit to see if it is performing at its best capacity and isn’t suffering from old age or malfunctions. Pay attention to how well your air conditioning is performing on a regular basis, and if you notice that it is not keeping your home as cool as usual, it may be necessary to get it checked out.
- Keep curtains closed
While your air conditioning works tirelessly to keep your house cool, you can assist your system and save yourself a more expensive electrical bill by keeping your curtains closed during the day. This will help block sunlight from entering your home which can otherwise heat up any room quickly, making your air conditioning’s job that much more difficult. It can also be helpful to install blackout curtains that will combat the sunlight more fully.
- Keep the use of your oven minimal
Using your oven throughout the day requires added heat to be in your home which will then heat up the rest of your house. It can be beneficial during those hot summer days to avoid cooking indoors when possible. This gives you the perfect excuse to have the outdoor barbeques that summer months are known for, and that you keep meaning to do!
- Use all available fans
If your home has ceiling fans, keeping them on throughout the day can help circulate the air and give a much-needed breeze, cooling you down. It can also be beneficial to purchase smaller personal fans that you can set in front of you to give you a direct and much needed cool breeze during those hot afternoons.
- Protect all appliances with a home warranty
To combat the extreme heat, you will not want to lose the functioning of important appliances that combat the heat, like your air conditioning system and ceiling fans. To ensure that these appliances are protected, and that you won’t be stuck without them, consider purchasing a home warranty plan. Having home warranty coverage will put your mind at ease knowing your appliances are protected – and if something were to go wrong, they will be fixed or replaced quickly.
