When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Longmont, chances are that you could find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the sad reality is that they arrive home with a non-working air conditioner and now must deal with 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 make heat. Of course you can’t completely stop using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses can help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the hottest part of the day as your air conditioner will more than likely already be working hard to keep your home cool.
- Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in an enormous amount of heat if your window coverings aren’t used, and considering the temperatures in Longmont, your home can warm up pretty 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 extra heat out.
- Use fans. While fans don’t actually affect air temperature, they do circulate air and help make certain your home is feeling comfortable. However, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t lower the air temperature.
