In addition to your home being cooler and more energy efficient, here are additional tips to help keep your home cool this summer.
Summertime isn’t always stove and oven-friendly. A slow cooker, toaster oven or microwave may be great alternatives to not overheating your fabulous kitchen. You may also want to take your culinary skills outback and barbecue. After all, your Roswell new home backyard is the perfect setting for cool shade, great food and good times.
Showering or running the dishwasher, washer or dryer during the hottest parts of the day can produce hot air and increase indoor humidity. We advise doing these activities during the cooler parts of the day. Use vents while cooking or showering can help remove warm moist air out of these areas. We also suggest setting your thermostat to 70° to 75°F when you’re home and up to 80°F when you’re away. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not a good idea to turn off your A/C when you leave the house. It’ll take more time and cost more money to cool your house back down once it’s overheated. Keeping doors shut and turning your ceiling fans counter clockwise can create a breeze and keep you cool. Just make sure to turn off your fans when they’re not being used. You should also close your windows, shades and drapes during the day to keep out the sun and heat.
