When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Miami, chances are that you could find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you get inside from doing yardwork. Of course for some homeowners, the unfortunate reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly unending, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Reduce 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 warmest parts 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 Miami, your home can warm up very quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just out of the house for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any excess heat out.
- Take advantage of fans. While fans don’t actually alter 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 utilized since they don’t lower the air temperature.
