Beat the Summer HEAT in your home by being following the below tips!
Heat up the food, not the house. A microwave is much more efficient (and quicker!) at heating things up than an oven, especially if you’re trying to stay cool with air conditioning.
Curtains, blinds and shades keep the sun’s hot rays out of your house. Keep them closed on sunny days during the summer season. Also, deciduous trees planted near your house (Particularly on the South and West sides) will add shade and produce a similar effect – that is, to curtains and blinds – with the added bonus that, when the tree sheds its leaves in the fall, the sunlight will return just in time for the colder months.
