When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Pierre, chances are that you may find yourself dreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the harsh reality is that they arrive home with a broken air conditioner and now need an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly never-ending, sweltering days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Lessen your use of appliances that create 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 the warmest parts of the day as your air conditioner will probably 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 used, and considering the temperatures in Pierre, your home can warm up awfully quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just gone for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any extra heat out.
- Use fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, make sure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t decrease the air temperature.
