Tips For Keeping Cool This Summer

Tips For Keeping Cool This SummerBeat The Heat With These Tips

The summer is finally here, offering us all a much welcome reprieve from the harsh winter we experienced in Pennsylvania this year. Unfortunately, the thermometer can swing a bit too far in the opposite direction, leaving us sweltering. To help you keep cool this summer, use these tips.

  • To avoid creating more heat in the house, opt to cook food outside on the grill, dry your clothes on a wash line (they will dry fast in the heat!), keep lights turned off except when necessary, and keep your blinds drawn during daylight hours.
  • Take a look at your outdoor condenser. Sometimes, spring growth of plants can restrict airflow, so make sure the area around your outdoor unit is clear.
  • Swap out your air filter. If your filter is not clean, it will not only make your system work harder, it can also restrict cool air from getting into your home. Air filters should be changed every few months.
