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.
