When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Naples, chances are that you could find yourself fantasizing about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you come inside from a long day. Of course for some homeowners, the sad reality is that they arrive home with a non-working air conditioner and now must deal with an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, 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 may help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during peak temperatures as your air conditioner will most 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 utilized, and considering the temperatures in Naples, your home can warm up very quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just out of the house 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 alter air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t lower the air temperature.
