As the summer months are fast approaching, soon it will be time to enjoy more outdoor activities. But that doesn’t mean that the inside of your home should be overlooked. In fact, on the contrary – as the warm weather can provide the ideal time to cross some “cool” home projects off your list…starting with prepping your home for hot, humid temperatures.
Your To-Do list for summer home preparation should include making sure that the heat doesn’t cause you to be uncomfortable while you are indoors. With that in mind, be sure that you concentrate on a few important areas, such as:
- Checking the air conditioner. Before the sweltering heat is upon us, now is a perfect time to make sure that your A / C is in good working order – and if it isn’t, you can get it up to speed before you need it. Your air conditioner checkup should ideally encompass replacing the air filter, as well as clearing away any of the dirt and debris that may have accumulated over the past several months.
- Turning your ceiling fan blades. As the warmer weather approaches, it is also a good time to make sure that any ceiling fans have their blades turned to counter-clockwise. (In this case, the fan blades would be tilted upwards as they spin). Doing so will help to keep air going downward, where it can create a stronger – and cooler – draft.
