Having problems with keeping your home cool as warmer days are on the horizon? The following tips should help you not only in keeping the temperature in check, but also in doing so on a lower budget than most of your neighbors could:
- Start by installing a basic set of blackout curtains to keep the sunlight out of rooms that you don’t use. If you don’t use your bedroom at all during the day, for instance, you can simply install the blinds there after keeping the window open in the morning or keeping your AC system going. They will keep the heat out, so your AC doesn’t have to work too hard later on, when you go to bed.
- Another great tip is to set up additional insulation in your home, especially in your attic. Short from actually installing a brand new cool roof, added insulation will keep your home cool longer, and prevent your HVAC from working overtime.
- Find a Denver AC repair technician to take a look at your ductwork and air-conditioning unit. Whether the coils need cleaning or the air filters need replacing, they will make sure your system works at peak efficiency, and you don’t have to pay as much on your next electric bill.
