There are a few DIY ways you can keep your home cool during the summer heat, but there are also a few things you may want to leave to the professionals. Renee of LCS Heating & Cooling has the details for both!
- Use your thermostat wisely by setting it as high as comfortably possible in the summer, ideally 75 degrees or higher. Do not set high temperature swinging programs.
- Use fans with your A/C, while fans do not produce cool air they help push down and circulate the cool air from your air conditioning system.
- Close the blinds or drapes in the daytime to keep out the greenhouse effect of the sun.
- Avoid the oven, working with a conventional oven can add unwanted heat to your home.
- Trim plants and trees away from the a/c unit so it doesn’t affect air flow.
Bring a Professional in for the following:
- Whole-house dehumidifier- removes humidity and allows you to keep the thermostat at a higher setting.
- Solar Powered Attic Fan: Removes heat from the attic, taking the heat load off the second floor.
- Air cleaners & UV lights: Helps with allergies!
