When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Mobile, chances are that you might 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 sad reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Decrease use of appliances that make heat. Of course you can’t completely quit using your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses can help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the hottest part 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 an enormous amount of heat if your window coverings aren’t taken advantage of, and considering the temperatures in Mobile, your home can warm up very 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 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, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
