Green Cooling Your Home

By Dave Allan
During these hot summer months keeping cool becomes priority one. But let’s not mortgage our future to keep cool now. Some green cooling tips you can utilize;

* Install a ceiling fan to circulate the air instead of cranking on the a/c and drawing high amounts of electricity. Remember the brown outs that happened last year?

* Use greenery around your home to naturally shade your home and reduce the inside temperature.

* If you have a basement, hang out in it during the hottest part of the day. You’d be surprised at the difference in temperature by just going down one floor.

* Open windows on the west side of your home in the morning and the east side in the evening. This will allow the coolest air to circulate through your home.
