How To Stay Cool By Not Using Your Air Conditioner

As the temperatures climb higher and higher across the Front Range, your
air conditioner may be working overtime to keep your home cool. But part
of what makes the Rockies great is the variance in temperature. It can
change 20, 30, even 40 degrees or more in a matter of hours. Even if the
temperature hit three digits during the day, it’s quite possible
it will cool down into the 60s at night.

That means while your air conditioner is an important part of your home
during the day, there are other ways of keeping your home cool on cooler
days and at night. That also means there are ways you can lower your monthly
utility bills, and stop the wear and tear on your air conditioning system
simply by giving it a break once in a while.How To Stay Cool By Not Using Your Air Conditioner

Give Your Air Conditioner A Break

Instead of letting your air conditioner run day and night, consider turning
it off when the temperatures dip down to a comfortable level.

  • Open up your windows and let the cool breeze blow in.
  • Shut down the blinds or shades when you’re at work to stop the sun
    from heating your home.
  • Avoid using appliances that heat up your home. Instead of baking, throw
    something on the grill.
  • Plan family outings on the hottest days. Spend the afternoon at the swimming
    pool or duck into a movie theater to cool down.
  • Use fans to circulate the air.

Turn Up The Temperature

Most HVAC professionals will tell you to aim for keeping your home around
78 degrees F during the summer. And when you leave home for extended periods
of time, dial it back 5 to 10 degrees more.

If 78 degrees seems too warm, try it with some of the above tips. Adding
a fan to the room you’re in can automatically make the air feel
cooler. It can also prevent you from getting sick if you’re in and
out of your home all day – extreme temperature variances aren’t
good for your body.

Ensure Your AC Is In Top Shape

Is your AC unit operating as efficiently as possible? By calling in a professional
for a tune up each year, you’ll ensure your equipment is in top
condition. That means the filter will be cleaned or newly installed. It
means it won’t be using more energy than necessary to produce cool air.

If you haven’t scheduled your maintenance visit yet for your air
conditioner, now is the time. Those hit afternoons are coming. Are you prepared?
