Here are some very easy ways to boost the energy-efficiency of your home during the hot summer months:
1. Covering your windows with shades, blinds or verticals will help to reflect heat away from the house.
2. During the day, close the treatments on South and West facing windows to keep the sun & heat from coming in.
3. Caulk cracks or install weather stripping around the window frames to seal off air flow. This will help your air conditioner be more productive.
4. Proper landscaping can help save up to 25% of heating and cooling costs. Consider planting shade-producing trees on the West and South sides of your home. Doing this will cool your home in the summer and permit sunlight to warm rooms in the winter.
