Tip 1: Keep Your Curtains and Blinds Closed

It seems like one of the more obvious ways to cool down a room, but don’t underestimate the power of shade! Remembering to close your curtains and blinds during the sunniest parts of the day can make a huge difference in your comfort levels and your wallet. 

Studies have shown that by closing the blinds and curtains on windows that receive direct sunlight throughout the day, you can significantly decrease the heat gain entering your home. 


Tip 2: Switch Your Sheets With The Seasons

Switching out your bed sheets in accordance with the seasons is a great way to feel comfortable year round. While sheet materials like flannel and fleece are great at insulation during the Winter, switching to cotton during the Summer will cool you down better than any other material in bedding. It’s breathable and moisture absorbent, leaving you with a comfortable and cool sleeping experience every night. Make the switch this Summer!


Tip 3: Texas Cool Technique: Open Your Windows at Night

If you’ve never heard of the “Texas Cool” technique, today’s your lucky day! It’s one of the more simple cooling hacks out there, but it’s also one of the best ways to cool down a room without breaking the bank. 

When the temperature drops at night, open your windows and invite the cool air in via a window fan. Once the sun comes up and temperatures start to rise outside, shut your windows, blinds, curtains, and doors to maintain a cool temperature indoors. It's like giving the heat a friendly Texas-sized wave goodbye!


Tip 4: Install a Mini Split

Mini-splits, also known as ductless mini-split ACs, are great cooling options if you’re trying to save money and energy. They allow independent cooling for different zones in your home, save energy, and enhance the indoor air quality by avoiding pesky ductwork. Their compact design suits various spaces, making them a flexible and cost-effective choice for cooling! 

If you’re interested in our mini-split AC installation service, our NATE-certified technicians are knowledgeable and trained to work on all types of mini split systems, from single-zone to multi-zone models.
