If you don’t have air conditioning in your home, it’s challenging to keep it cool. While there are obvious steps to take, such as closing blinds during the day, there are other tactics you can use to keep your home comfortable.

Vent Your Attic

Attics get incredibly hot during the summer, which impacts the temperature inside your home. Install fans in the attic vents to help reduce heat. There are smart attic fans that automatically increase speed during the hottest days of the summer.

Turn On Bathroom Fans

The fans in your bathrooms pull in interior air and blow it outside. You can use this to your advantage on hot days to remove warm air from your home.

Unplug Electronics

Modern electronics are on all the time. Even when you’re not using them, they’re in standby mode and producing heat. Unplug things like phone chargers, Blu-Ray players and toasters. You can make this easier by using power strips to turn off several things at once.

Install Outdoor Shade

You can use plants, trees and awnings to keep your home cool. These help shade your home from the sun. These can reduce the temperature inside your home by as much as 9 degrees if strategically placed.

Change Your Lighting

While you buy lightbulbs to provide lighting, incandescent bulbs produce a lot of heat. Keep your home cooler by replacing them with LEDs. LEDs produce a fraction of the heat that incandescent bulbs do, and will reduce your energy bills.

Cook and Do Chores in the Evening

Only cook in the evening as it produces a lot of heat. Similarly, just run your dishwasher and clothes dryer after your home has cooled down for the day.

What our customers are saying
Five-Star Customer Reviews

Evans Mechanical is an excellent service committed to customer satisfaction and guaranteed quality workmanship. Our water heater burst and they were very responsive. They sent a technician out the same day and it was determined the heater was beyond repair.

The installers are finishing up. We expect to have great results with the new furnace & the newly installed dehumidifier. We applaud the professionalism of the installers.

Shutterbug S.

Excellent service from start to finish. Joe came out to give us an estimate on what we would need for a new furnace, never pressured us to buy the top of their line just giving us options on what we would need for our home. Then the date set for installation Thomas and Ryan came out on time and did a great job.

Kathi J.

All three technicians worked well together. They treated each other kindly and were thoughtful and courteous with me. They did a final and complete cleanup after the installment of my new heater. They were respectful of my home. I’m grateful I used this company.
