There’s nothing like kicking off summer with an urgent need to beat the heat! Continue reading for five free ways you can cool down this season.
Drink plenty of water. This might seem like a no brainer, but you would be surprised at just how many people do not drink enough water throughout the day. It’s important to stay hydrated all year round…especially in the warmer months. When you leave the house, remember to take a reusable water bottle with you!
Keep the air circulating. On cooler days, turn off your AC and rely on your fans to cool down your home. Optimize your fans by facing them out the window at night. This will help the room stay cooler and you might be able to sleep more comfortably.
Lower the temperature of your water heater. During the summer months, you can set your water heater temperature at the low end of the scale, placing it close to or at 110 degrees. This saves energy and puts money back in your pocket!
Avoid using the oven. Turning on your oven or stove can heat up an already warm house. Summer evenings are a great opportunity to cook and eat outdoors. Click here to read our recent blog article for four inexpensive BBQ ideas!
