Keeping Cool Without AC

Posted on May 14th, 2015 by Jupiter Tequesta

While most residences in our area are equipped with central air, you might not always want to or be able to run the AC. Whether you’re trying to save on energy costs or your air conditioner is out of commission, we’ve got you covered.

Keeping Cool Without AC

Here are our tips for keeping cool without AC:

1. Keep the windows closed

“It may seem counterintuitive,” reports Good Housekeeping, “but on hot summer days, opening the windows will often make your home warmer, not cooler.” Only do this until nighttime, though! Once things have cooled off a bit, open those windows wide and try to create a cross breeze. Don’t forget to close them back up before the sun hits your home.

2. Remove incandescent light bulbs

Now’s the perfect time to replace those old incandescent light bulbs with modern CFLs or LEDs. Traditional light bulbs waste a whopping 90 percent of the energy they use. And guess what? It’s given off as heat!

3. Fire up the grill

Cooking in a hot kitchen is like adding fuel to a fire — it’s only going to make matters worse! Why not opt for the grill? After all, on a hot summer day, there’s nothing better than some good, old-fashioned BBQ.

Keeping cool without AC is possible! Refer to these tips when you’re without air conditioning.
