Best Ways to Keep Your Home Cool

Summer heat in Washington

Most Washingtonians can agree that the summertime is one of the best season in the greater Seattle area. Blue skies and lots of sunshine, does it get better than that? 

Most of us are excited for some warm weather after a long stretch of chilly days, but the higher temps bring the struggle of keeping your home cool. The heat can provoke those restless nights where it feels impossible to get comfortable. We know that can be miserable!

The most effective way to cool your home

For best results, we recommend having a cooling system installed in your home. There are different options to choose from, so you can find a system to suit your needs. Whether that’s an energy efficient air conditioning unit, mini-split system or a heat pump

Depending on how your home’s HVAC system is set up, this can help determine the cooling system that’s right for your home. If you have a forced air system then an AC unit might be the best option for you. If your system is electric then a mini-split may be the way to go!

No matter the option you go with, your home will be cooler when you need it most. Plus, getting a cooling system installed is much more energy efficient than just a plain window AC. You’ll save more on energy bills, the system will last longer and you can count on cool air all throughout your home.

Home remedies to cool your home

If installing a cooling system isn’t the right option for you at this time; try out some of these cost effective ways to help reduce the heat in your home.

    • Close blinds, shades and curtains
      • This can help block out direct sunlight from heating up certain rooms.
    • Close doors
      • Keeping doors closed can help retain the colder air for a longer amount of time.
    • Try to avoid cooking at the hottest part of the day
      • The kitchen can create and retain a lot of heat. Maybe try a BBQ or takeout on those super hot days!
    • Point a box fan out your window
      • To help circulate hot air and push it outside.
    • Turn on kitchen and bathroom fans
      • These fans are helpful in drawing out heat from nearby rooms.
    • Do laundry and ironing at certain time of day
      • Dryers and irons put off a lot of heat. Try to get these tasks done during the cooler hours of the day, so you aren’t contributing to the heat within your home.
    • Open windows at both ends of the house
      • This helps with cross-ventilation. Keeping windows open at both ends of your home can promote the air to move freely throughout your home.

    ARE THERE ANY W.E.S. REBATES AVAILABLE IF WE PUT IN A NEW PROPANE HEAT/COOLING PUMP? WE WERE TOLD LAST YEAR THAT OUR FURNACE WAS TOO OLD AND NEEDED REPLACING. WE WOULD LIKE TO REPLACE IT WITH A HEATING COOLING PUMP THIS YEAR.
