When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Jacksonville, chances are that you could find yourself dreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the harsh reality is that they arrive home with a non-working air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Reduce 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 might help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the warmest parts of the day 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 great deal of heat if your window coverings aren’t used, and considering the temperatures in Jacksonville, your home can warm up pretty quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just gone for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any excess heat out.
- Use fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help make certain your home is feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t decrease the air temperature.
