When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Livermore, 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 broken air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly endless, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Reduce use of appliances that generate 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 more than likely already be working hard to keep your home cool.
- Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a lot of heat if your window coverings aren’t used, and considering the temperatures in Livermore, your home can warm up pretty 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 unnecessary heat out.
- Utilize 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 lower the air temperature.
