When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Fort Worth, chances are that you might find yourself dreaming 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 non-working air conditioner and now require 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 discontinue the use of your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses might help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during peak temperatures as your air conditioner will probably already be working hard to keep your home cool.
- Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a great deal of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Fort Worth, your home can warm up awfully quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just away from your home 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 ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t lower the air temperature.
