Constantly running your air conditioning system on hot summer days may keep you cool, but you’re not doing your wallet any favors. With that in mind, how would you like some alternative ways to banish the summer heat from inside your home? Here are a few tips to keep your house cool while incorporating evaporative coolers in Phoenix, AZ this summer:

  • Get windows tinted: Window coverings are a great way to block out the hot afternoon sun—especially for windows that are exposed to the direct sunlight for most of the day. But coverings like curtains, drapes and blinds can be bulky and hard to clean. Instead, look into installing a professional glass tint over your home’s windows. That way, you’ll be letting in enough natural light to illuminate your home, but not so much that you can bake cookies on your coffee table.
  • Don’t cook inside: Every home cook knows that the heat from the stove and oven can leave your home hot for hours, so avoid cooking indoors on blistering hot days. But this doesn’t mean you should eat out at restaurants or enjoy fast food for every meal. What you should do is simply find other ways to prepare your meals at home during the hottest parts of the day. Try grilling outside, throwing together no-cook meals or using the oven early in the morning. After all, home cooking is healthier cooking.
  • Install an evaporative cooler: By installing one on your roof, you can utilize evaporative coolers in Phoenix, AZ as a primary or secondary method of home cooling. Do you prefer being able to relocate a cooling device to whichever room you’re in? Get portable coolers for easy movement around the house to keep you and your family comfortable all season long.
  • Inspect A/C and coolers: The key to a nice, cool home this summer is a working cooling system, which is best accomplished through regular maintenance by you and annual maintenance and inspections by a professional. Components like hoses, wires, coils, pads and vents must all be in good condition to avoid problems.
  • Use ceiling fans: There are ways you can enhance the cold air that’s pumped in by your whole house cooler. For instance, when ceiling or portable fans are used in conjunction with your evaporative cooler, the indoor air can remain at a comfortable temperature for a longer time. Fans also allow you to use your cooler less to prevent overworking the system and help lower those energy bills.
  • Turn off electronics: Heat can manifest from other sources besides the sun—for example, from the television, radios, computer screens and lights. These devices and more can contribute to indoor heat, so unplug any appliances you don’t use often and make sure to power down electronics when they’re not being used.

Whether you decide to install one on your home or you opt for a portable version, evaporative coolers in Phoenix, AZ are fantastic at helping to cool your home when the temperatures begin to rise.
