Are you already thinking about thescorching temperatures of summer? How about the super high utility bills if you want to keep your house at a reasonable temperature?


Focus on Your Windows


You can always open the windows up for some light after the sun goes down a little. In the day, you need to shy away from opening the windows no matter how much you want to see out if you want to keep it cool inside.

Use a Dehumidifier

If you live in an area where it’s really humid, it takes longer for your sweat to evaporate. You might feel the sweat on your brow and in your hair more, but if you use a dehumidifier, you can decrease the sweaty, sticky situation.

Be Smart With Running Your AC

There is a smart way to run your AC, so you don’t blast yourself into a sky-high electric bill. If you aren’t home during the day because you’re at work, you should set your thermostat higher. The lower you have your thermostat set, the harder your AC has to work.

Giving your AC a break in the day isn’t going to hurt anything when you get home at night, and you want it cooler while you’re in the house.


If you aren’t in a room, don’t leave the lights on in there. Leaving the lights on in rooms where you aren’t even hanging out means you’re creating unnecessary heat from the bulbs.
