1. Keep the sun out by blocking the windows during the day. Keeping all the curtains closed can help keep your house cool when the sun at it its hottest. For the best effect, consider getting curtains specially made for blocking out the heat. (They can also be great for keeping in the warmth come the winter season!) Ventilate the house at night when the temperature is cooler.
2. Install new lights. Did you know that old, incandescent light bulbs give off 90% of their energy as heat? That heat is warming up your home in the summer and costing you money! Upgrading to more energy-efficient light bulbs will light up your home just as bright and save you money. Our friendly team at Omega can help you pick out the right type of bulbs for your home from the wide range available.
3. Get the facts on ceiling fans During the summer, ensure they are spinning in a counterclockwise direction. To save energy, turn the off when no one is in the room. If you are considering installing a ceiling fan, have the professionals at Omega help you to ensure the job is done right.
