Helpful Tips on How to Keep Cool

Lena Price - Wednesday, June 24, 2015

The heat has arrived.  Here are a few tips to stay cool the rest of the week...

Set your thermostat to 78. Go higher, if the humidity is low enough and you feel comfortable. Turning a thermostat down to cool a room quicker doesn't work, by the way -- it makes the a/c run longer, not colder.

Wear short-sleeved, loose clothing. You dress lightly to go out on a summer day. Do the same indoors. Absorbent, wickable cotton (organic, of course!) is the hot weather classic.

Drink lots of water. This is good practice, anyway. Cold drinks drop your body's core temperature and cools you down quickly.

Add more wetness. Wear a wet rag on your neck, a bandanna on your head, a wet t-shirt. As the water evaporates it will help cool you more effectively. Water has an amazing ability to remove heat, why else do you think they use it to cool power plants.

Take a cool shower, but not a cold one. If you take a cold shower your body will react by shivering which is trying to keep you warm. If a shower is not practical, pans or buckets of water for hands and/or feet help a lot too.

Draw your drapes. Keeping you blinds, shades, and curtains closed -- particularly on the west side of the house -- helps keeps heat from getting inside in the first place.

Turn off unnecessary heat-producing devices. Incandescent light bulbs are a big heat generator. Shut down electronic gear when you're not using it.

Use the microwave. Conventional cooking dumps heat in the house, but microwaves cook the food directly.

Wash and dry clothes when the day is cool. Do laundry early in the day and late at night. Don't forget clotheslines: they generate no heat in the house.

Skip your dishwasher's dry cycle. Rack your dishes and let them air dry, instead.

Open the bathroom window when showering. Vent heat and humidity outside, rather than back into the house. Obviously, you don't want to put on a show for the neighbors. If you have privacy concerns, open up after dressing. Keep the bathroom door closed.

Run your air conditioner fan on low, if it's settable. Particularly helpful in high humidity. the low air volume helps your a/c dehumidify.

Keep heat-producers away from your thermostat. Don't allow a closely located TV or water heater to convince your thermostat that it's hotter than it really is.

Check your refrigerator settings. The fridge takes heat out of your food and transfers it to your kitchen, so be sure you're running efficiently. The refrigerator is best set between 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Put the freezer around five degrees. 

Close the fireplace damper. Don't send cool air up the chimney. If your fireplace has a glass door, shut it.

Remember we service all makes and models of heat pumps, central air conditioners, and ductless heat pumps / air conditioners.  Call us for 24 / 7 emergency service Air Masters Heating 360-895-2527 or  Send a Service Request  or we would be happy to provide a free estimate for a new heat pump or air conditioner Send an Free Estimate Request for Add On or Replacement Heat Pump or Central Air Conditioner
