When you are an older man who grew up in the south, you think a thing or more than one about staying cool while in the summer time weeks, but often, if you learn articles, the first thing someone will propose is to get a more efficient HVAC unit.
Well, that is not disappointing advice, however it costs a lot! I am here to tell you that simply finding a really great way to cover your windows is one way to cut the cost of unit.
The cooler you can naturally keep your house, the less artificial unit you will have to use to stay cool and prevent mildew growth. So, forget about buying a up-to-date air conditioner; Find great ways of covering your windows! First, consider window film. If you don’t think what that is, you are a yankee. Window film can be bought relatively cheaply. It is either dark or reflective coating you cut and stick on your windows to cut cooling costs by blocking out the sun. Some terrible southerners will even put aluminum foil up against their windows to cut down on the afternoonlight penetrating inside. Second, get an awning. If you think awnings are just for looks, think again. The purpose of an awning is to cut down on cooling costs. Third, discover room blackening curtains! Room darkening or blackening curtains are made of this insulating material. They block the afternoonlight so well that the unit will kick on thirty percent less often if you use these curtains. Fourth, cover your windows with shade, but plant trees or tall shrubbery so they shade your windows. All of these self-explanatory things will help you use less unit.
