- Since heat rises, the top floor of your house is almost guaranteed to be the hottest. To help get the hot air out and cool your house faster you can turn on ceiling fans or standing fans. Utilize your fans since this is an inexpensive way to help keep your home cold.
Keep the heat out
- Keep your blinds closed to help block out the rays and this will help you keep your rooms cooler. The opposite goes for the winter months when you want to keep the blinds open to help heat your home.
- Make sure you seal drafty doors and windows to help you lower cost even more all while keeping you cool.
Update your equipment
- The newer HVAC equipment runs much more efficient and will help cut down on cost as well, but this could also be an expensive initial investment that you have to consider.
Clean those vents
- Make sure you make it a point to check and clean the vents. Dust can easily build up and block airflow so you want to try and avoid that for cleaner, more consistent air circulation.
- Filters should be replaced every month due to them easily getting clogged and dirty. If filters are not replaced in a timely manner, it can obstruct airflow and can lead to health problems.
These are just a few things you can do to help cut cost all while keeping a comfortable temperature in your house!
