The heat is on in Orange County & we’re all looking for ways to stay cool. Here are some tips that may seem obvious, but can help keep the indoor temperature down without running the AC all day:
*Turn off the lights – Use natural light during the day & CFL bulbs whenever possible.
*Reduce indoor humidity - Run showers & baths early in the day or after the sun has gone down.
*Cooking generates heat & raises room temperatures. Grill outdoors & avoid indoor cooking when it’s hot outside. If you need to cook, use the range’s vent fan to get rid of hot air.
*Add shade-giving potted plants outside of windows to reduce sunlight.
