red and white houseWe’re into late spring, and it’s already hot. Summer is coming, and there’s nothing to stop it. The weather is nice, but indoors the heat is too much. So how can you keep your house cool this summer?

Use these five tips to help keep your house cool this summer.

Use the Right Air Conditioner

Use the right air conditioner for your home – make sure whatever air conditioner you have is sized correctly. Additionally, consider a high-efficiency unit, as these use less energy overall and work more efficiently.

Lastly, make sure you maintain your air conditioner to keep it in tip-top running shape.

Close the Blinds During the Day

This doesn’t let the heat in, allowing your home to stay cooler. Keeping the house sealed up during the day allows the cooler air to stay inside and keeps the hot air out.

Use Fans

Fans help circulate air and can be a powerful aid, especially when used in conjunction with an air conditioner.

Don’t Underestimate the Power of Mother Nature

A strategically placed tree by your house can provide shade, thus cooling down your house.

Grill Out

Grilling food takes place outside, meaning you aren’t using the stove or oven. This reduces the heat from these appliances escaping into your home.
