When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Savannah, chances are that you could 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 busted air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly unending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Reduce use of appliances that create heat. Of course you can’t completely quit using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses may help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during peak temperatures as your air conditioner will most likely already be working hard to keep your home cool.
- Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a lot of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Savannah, your home can warm up pretty 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 unnecessary heat out.
- Utilize fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t lower the air temperature.
