When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Winnipeg, chances are that you may find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you come inside from a long day. Of course for some homeowners, the harsh 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 unending, steamy 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 might help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the hottest part of the day 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 an enormous amount of heat if your window coverings aren’t used, and considering the temperatures in Winnipeg, your home can warm up awfully 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 extra heat out.
- Take advantage of fans. While fans don’t actually change air temperature, they do circulate air and help keep your home feeling comfortable. However, ensure you turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being utilized since they don’t decrease the air temperature.
