In Gainesville the temperatures get incredibly high during the summer. Because of the high temperatures that our state reaches, our community experiences an influx in their electricity because of how high their air is running. While we completely understand that the heat can be unbearable, we know that paying to run your air conditioning unit all summer long can get expensive, so we want to provide you with some easy and affordable ways to keep your home cool without having to use your AC.
One of the most obvious ways is opening your windows. Now, in Gainesville this can get worse because of the humidity and the already high temperatures, but later in the day or once the sun goes down, this is a great way to keep your home cool without having your unit running at all. When you take the cooler temperatures into consideration, and any brisk breeze, your home will still be nice and cool.
Fans are another great option for keeping your home cool on the days that are tolerable. Fans do use up electricity, but their circulation keeps air fresh and offers a nice breeze. When you open a few windows and turn on a fan you then are cooling your home with the air from outside rather than having your unit push the cool air into your home and using up all that energy.
Other than these two tips, we suggest installing a thermostat that is programmable so that you can manage when and how often your unit is running. Also, making sure that your home is in a good state to provide energy efficient results that will keep the temperature of your home maintained for seasons, and years, to come.
