Tips For Keeping Your Home Cool This Summer

We’re lucky we get to take advantage of Florida’s weather, but between high temperatures and extreme humidity, the summer months can be unbearable. With summer right around the corner, now is the best time to learn how to keep your home cool during the warmest months.

Keep the Blinds Closed

It sounds like a no-brainer, but something as simple as closing your blinds can halt up to 30 percent of unwanted heat that comes from your windows! When the blinds are open and the sun shines through your windows, heat can become trapped inside of your home and basically turn your humble abode into a miniature greenhouse. Try keeping the blinds closed during the hottest hours of the day or use drapes or curtains to help keep the sun (and heat) out.

Switch Up Your Bedding

Switching up your bedding with the seasons not only adds a fresh look to your room, but it can make your room cooler too. If you use bedding made of flannel or fleece in the cooler months, swap these for light bedding in the summer. Cotton, buckwheat and other fabrics with low insulation breathe easier and help you stay cool when the temperature rises.

Cook More Meals Outdoors

Using your oven in the summer months is a sure way to make your home hotter. When the temperature rises outdoors, the last thing you want to do is crank up your oven to 375 degrees. The solution? Get the grill out! Grilling meals is not only a fun summer activity, but it will help keep the temperature inside of your home to a minimum. Pick up some burgers and veggie kabobs and take advantage of your outdoor furniture and accessories.

Schedule a Maintenance Checkup

No matter how many tips and tricks you use to keep your home cool, you’ll be fighting an uphill battle if your air conditioning system isn’t up to par. The best way to ensure your AC is summer-ready is by scheduling a maintenance checkup with your local AC professionals!
