It’s hot outside! And, unfortunately, your home is feeling the heat too. You could run around your house turning on all the fans and blasting the air conditioning, but that’s not very energy efficient. In this blog post, we will discuss tips on keeping your home cool during the summer without breaking the bank.

One way to keep your home cool during the summer is by opening your windows at night. This allows cooler air to enter your home, which can help reduce the energy you use to cool your home during the day. Additionally, opening your windows at night can help improve air circulation in your home, which can also help regulate temperatures and help you achieve a better night’s sleep during the hot summer months,

Next, remember to start closing your windows during the day, especially when keeping out hot air. By doing so, you can help keep your home more relaxed and more comfortable overall. Additionally, it can also save you money on your energy bills by preventing heat from entering your home in the first place. So next time the temps start rising, close your windows and enjoy the cooler air inside.

Additionally, you can try closing your curtains to stop the sunlight from coming in and creating additional heat in your home.

If you have any ice packs, now would be an excellent time to use them! Placing them in front of a fan will help circulate the cooler air throughout your home.

Finally, ceiling fans and tower fans are also great for circulating air and keeping your home cool as a last resort; however, as these can use a large amount of energy, you could save their usage until the hottest parts of the day, which is usually between 12 and 3 pm.
