When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Fort Worth, chances are that you could find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. 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 never-ending, steamy days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Decrease 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 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 Fort Worth, 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 change air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being occupied since they don’t lower the air temperature.
