How You Can Cut Cooling Costs This Summer

Make Your Home More Energy Efficient in the Summer Months

Worried about saving on cooling costs in the summer months? Everyone is. While the solution for many to keep air conditioning running all day, that may not be the most energy-efficient method. Below are some ways to keep your home cool all while saving on energy costs.

Use a Ceiling Fan

During certain times of the day, a humble ceiling fan would do the job if the heat isn’t too intense. It’s the simplest solution in making your living space cooler. Just make sure that you turn it off whenever it’s not in use. A ceiling fan will also help distribute air cooled by an air conditioner efficiently if you’re already using an air conditioner.

Find the Perfect Setting for Your AC

If you use your air conditioning unit frequently, are you sure your settings are optimal? Upgrading your thermostat to a smart thermostat like Nest, will help put your energy usage into stats that will help you run your home.

Replace Your HVAC Filters

To keep your HVAC running smoothly, filters need to be cleaned out or replaced. Dirty filters mean that your system will need to work harder to keep your home cool. If you think your filters have become too dirty or unusable, then consider replacing them. Not only will replacing them help your HVAC run more efficiently but it will also help prevent respiratory problems.

Upgrade Your Windows

A home with old windows lets heat in more easily. Upgrading your windows with new technology which will keep your home cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter. Paired with window sun screens, you will have a cooler and more energy-efficient home in the long run.

Keeping Kids Safe While Poolside

Take Note of These Tips to Minimize the Risks Involved

It’s a great idea to think ahead of the ways to keep cool during the summer, especially when the heat of the Arizona sun raises temperatures into triple digits. The pool is definitely a great way to have fun while keeping yourself cool but it can also be risky, especially for small children. So, how do you keep kids safe at the poolside?

Supervise Children at All Times

This is perhaps the most important measure you can do when kids are poolside. You should give kids full attention, because even the slightest distraction could spell disaster. Leaving kids unsupervised is never advised, as drowning can happen in an instant.

Teach Children basic Safety & Swimming Tips

Enrolling kids in swimming lessons or teaching them yourself is important in keeping them safe, teaching them basics and what to do when they’re in trouble. Take note of what they have the capacity to understand, and lay out the dangers in simple, but serious, terms.

Build a Pool Safety Fence

Fences can look unattractive but they are so valuable in protecting kids. When it comes to Arizona laws on fencing, both below-ground and above-ground pools must be completely enclosed by a wall with no openings through which kids could squeeze in. Fences don’t even have to be unattractive: some fences are actually transparent, giving you a clear view of the pool, all while keeping your kids protected from the dangers of being unsupervised at the poolside.

Have Emergency Safety Items Within Reach

A phone, first aid kit, and floatation devices definitely help in keeping the danger low while at poolside. It’s best to prepare these items before even setting out to the pool in case something goes awry. It’s also important that you know how to use them. Don’t be too complacent!

Sun Protection

Living in Arizona, means protecting yourself and your family from the dangers of prolonged sun exposure.

  • Sunscreen  Be sure to have kids apply sunscreen. The sun will get intense during the summer months. This means that they run the risk of getting sunburned which can be extremely uncomfortable. Sunscreen that is at least SPF 50 is best for protecting kids from the rays of the sun.

When keeping kids supervised, it’s always a good idea to keep yourself close. That could mean exposing yourself to the heat of the Arizona sun for hours on end.

  • Awnings  Perfect for poolside shade, providing comfort against the sun’s heat, have awnings installed. You can get retractable awnings that you can simply roll back whenever you don’t need them. Awnings can definitely give you that much-needed shade.

Staying Cool Poolside This Summer

Don’t Let the Hot Arizona Summer Sun Get to You. 

The sweltering heat of the Arizona summer can definitely take a toll on you, especially if you’re staying home more. Here are some tips to help keep yourself cool at home during the hot summer months.

Prepare Cold Snacks

You can easily make cold snacks yourself.  You can cut fruit and freeze them, make popsicles, or maybe prepare some ice cream.

You can even shave some ice and add in some flavoring to create snow cones for everyone to enjoy.

Install a Misting System

You can keep temperatures at a lower level by adding mist to the cooling process. Having a misting system installed on your home, which works best in low-humidity environments like Arizona, can cool the surroundings by about 25 degrees. A misting system uses little energy, so you won’t have to worry about surges in energy bills.

Hydrate Regularly

It’s important to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day since the heat drains your body of moisture and the ability to cool itself through sweating.

After a long hot day, nothing is better than being able to have a glass of cold water but it’s important that you keep at it with the habit.
