The 4th of July is here, but before breaking out the grill, take a look at these four tips for staying cool this 4th of July.
Check Your Filters
Checking your filters is always a good idea, especially ahead of important occasions where you want to make sure that your home stays cool and comfortable. Remember that home filters are usually replaced every 90 days, although you may need to do it more often if you have pets.
Keep Hot Air Out
One of the simplest ways to keep warm air out is by sealing cracks in your doors or windows. If you detect an opening, just add caulk or weatherstripping to keep heat from leaking into your home this 4th of July.
Fans help mitigate heat in your home and dissipate the stuffiness of the hottest summer days. However, pay attention to how you use the fans in your home. Remember that fans cool people, not the house itself. That’s why you should turn them off whenever you leave a room.
Finally, use your imagination and come up with creative ways to stay cool over the weekend. Some ideas you may like to try include:
- Fill a hot water bottle, put it in the fridge, and keep it on hand
- Cut back on your appliance use to reduce the heat in your house
- Make sure your ceiling fans run counterclockwise
- Stay hydrated!
