Keep Your House Cool in the Summer

Hi, I’m consumer expert Jeanette Pavini with just one thing to do to save money. Install window coverings to south and west facing windows. Keep them closed especially when running the AC. When possible, delay chores which produce heat such as dish washing, laundering and cooking until cooler times of the day or night. Set ceiling fans to run counter-clockwise which will pull hot air up towards the ceiling. This will allow you to raise your thermostat by a few degrees and still feel cool. At night put a box fan in north and east facing windows to pull cool air into the house.
