When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Kitchener, chances are that you may find yourself dreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you come inside from a long day. Of course for some homeowners, the sad reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Lessen your use of appliances that create heat. Of course you can’t completely discontinue the use of 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 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 Kitchener, your home can warm up awfully 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.
- Utilize fans. While fans don’t actually alter air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t lower the air temperature.
