Keep energy costs low, even during another heat wave, with these tips.
The calendar may say that summer has come to an end, but those of us in Southern California know that doesn’t mean we won’t face another heat wave! Our part of the state is famous (or infamous) for having some of the hottest days after fall should have theoretically begun.
As hot as September was, you’re probably more than ready to see things cool down for the sake of your energy bill. The good news is that with these tips for homeowners and renters, you can lower your energy costs!
- Create Cross Breezes. Ventilating your living space is one of the most affordable ways to cool it down. In the mornings and the evenings—when the air is cool—open windows on opposite sides of the house or apartment to allow a breeze to blow through it and cool it down.
- Avoid Appliances. You might be creating heat without even knowing it! Avoid clothes dryers, ovens, stoves, and even dishwashers to keep these heat-generating appliances powered down. Hint: the grill’s a great way to whip up dinner where the heat can quickly escape.
- Be Blind to the Sun. Draw your blinds to keep the sun out of every room. If you can keep your window coverings closed during daylight hours when the sun would otherwise beat in, you can noticeably drop the temperature in your home or apartment.
