Ahhh…summer is here which means family fun – BBQ’s, pool parties, and outdoor activities. 

But there are days when the Indiana summer heat isn’t quite so fun and cranking up the AC at home seems like your only option.

Here are some tips for keep your home cooler and save on your energy bills at the same time.

1. Close your blinds

Closing your blinds; especially on north and west-facing windows, can cool your home and save on your electric bill. 

2. Adjust Ceiling fans

Set your ceiling fans to rotate counterclockwise in summer to push air straight down and create a cooling effect for your comfort.

3. Close Doors and Seal Gaps

Closing doors to rooms that aren’t in use can keep cool air where you need it most. Seal gaps around doors and windows. Use draught excluders to ensure the cool air can’t escape.

4. Change Your Lightbulbs

If you’re having trouble cooling your home and your AC is running efficiently; incandescent lightbulbs might be to blame. Consider switching to energy-saving LEDs to help cool your home and save on energy costs. 

5. Use a Programmable Thermostat

Installing a programmable thermostat can help keep your home cooler this summer and help save on your energy bill. Smart or programmable thermostats can be set to reduce the temperature a few degrees during the workday and adjust to cooler temperatures when you arrive home to save on your energy costs.

6. Avoid Cooking Indoors

When temperatures are high, it’s hard to keep your home when cooking indoors. Your appliances: stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher can all add heat to the home. Plan some meals on the grill to keep your home cool and comfortable.
