Three Energy Saving House Cooling Tips to Beat The Summer Heat
You don't have to go without air conditioning simply because you're trying to cut costs on cooling. Easy adjustments to your home and routine can help you keep cool without blowing your budget on electricity. To help you beat the heat this Summer, we've compiled 3 energy-efficient cooling options for you to consider for your home!
1. Use evaporative coolers
Evaporative coolers can be installed in the ceiling, or you can have portable ones around your house. They work by circulating air through a wet sponge. To chill a room, open a window. The hot air will go out, while colder air will stay in. Evaporative coolers cost less than central air conditioning systems because they use less electricity. Instead, they use water to cool the air, so they only work in dry areas.
2. Whole house fans
Whole house fans cool the whole house without increasing humidity (like evaporative coolers). These fans prevent warm air accumulation in the ceiling. This method works best at temperatures below 27 degrees since it moves the air without cooling it. If your roof is well-insulated, you won't need a whole house fan.
3. Portable window units
Portable air conditioners are small enough to fit in a window or on the floor with an exhaust line. With the help of these efficient devices, you can enjoy cool air wherever you spend the most time. They help those who are trying to conserve energy since they are so easy to turn on and off.
You don’t necessarily need to switch on costly air-conditioning to keep your house cool this Summer. If you are looking to further save on your energy bills, you can get in touch with our team at PRD Smarter Connect to compare your bills and see if you could be saving.
