7 Easy, Breezy Tips For Keeping Your House Cold and Your Savings Hot

1.) I scream, you scream, we all scream for… A/C!

My first solution to escape the summer heat is by investing in or updating your air conditioning unit. I’ve talked to some of our salespeople, and though air conditioning units tend to vary in prices, our salespeople believe that they can find is an A/C for almost any budget you are sticking with.

2.) Bring the Heat (Film)

The majority of your home’s heat is entering or leaving through the windows, and there’s no better way to block the heat than window heat film! Heat film is easy to apply, and easily regulates temperatures. What’s more? Heat film also works in the winter to contain your home’s heat, how convienent!

3.) Meet Our (Ceiling) Fans

I am a big fan of ceiling fans… and you should be too! Ceiling fans circulate air to create consistent, cool temperatures while not using heaps of energy. I’ve walked around the design center, and we’ve got plenty of ceiling fan options in store for you at www.wolffbros.com/showroom.html

4.) Exhaust Your Air, Not Your Wallet

Heat is truly exhausting, to you and your savings. Thankfully, exahust fans exist and are essential for trying to decrease heat. Exhaust fans pull out any excess heat in the room they’re installed in. I recommend installing exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom, as those rooms tend to get the most heated.

5.) Plant These Bulbs to Grow Your Savings

Incandescent light bulbs, unfortunately, use energy while producing heat in your home. By making the switch to LED light bulbs, you’ll reduce the heat while saving money and energy. Furthermore, when your lights are not in use, be sure to turn them off to spare the heat, energy, and money. Remember, a little flick of the switch goes a long way.

6.) Who Touched the Thermostat?

By installing a programmable or smart thermostat, you will have no problem when people touch your thermostat! Smart thermostats will work to keep your home colder only when you need it so costs are kept lower. I’m currently excited about Honeywell Home’s Smart Thermostat, that can monitor each room’s temperature throughout your home.

7.) Be Kind; Close the Blinds

If any of your windows receive direct sunlight, be sure to close your blinds or pull down your curtains. Yes this task is simple, but it makes a world of difference when reducing heat in your home… especially during the warmest times of the day! Plus, it costs no money, that’s a double win!
