HELPFUL INFORMATION FROM AHI RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL INSPECTIONS, INC.
Summer is here, which means sunny weather, beach days, and barbecues – and on those especially hot days, you want to ensure your home is cool and comfortable without causing the utility bill to skyrocket. Fortunately, there are five affordable ways to stay cool at home so you can kick back, get some air and enjoy the summer.
1. Use fans strategically
An easy first step to staying cool is to use fans to circulate the air in your home. While the air itself does not cool from the fan, it can create a cool feeling against your skin. How? As air moves across your skin, it helps remove heat which in turn provides a cooling effect. This can be particularly useful at night to help you sleep. Use ceiling fans or portable fans to help you stay cool when you are present in rooms but remember to turn them off when you leave to conserve energy and save yourself from a pricey utility bill.
2. Add portable air conditioning
One of the main benefits that a portable air conditioner can offer is the effortless installation process and ease of use. Portable Air Conditioners don’t require an external condenser unit and can connect to your window via a hose and window bracket/casement. Portable air conditioners also take up less window space, and you can easily remove the vent when the AC is not in use. LG portable air conditioners provide a three-in-one operation for customized home comfort: you can use the cool mode for powerful cooling and dehumidifying features on warmer, steamier days. The fan circulates the air in the room in fan mode, and dry mode is ideal for damp, rainy days. You can make adjustments easily on the LED display, use the remote, or your phone or Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant with the LG ThinQ app.
3. Use window air conditioning
Window air conditioners work quite effectively to cool down any space in your home so you can get quality air indoors. LG window air conditioners with Dual Inverter Compressor technology offer up to 25% more energy savings than the ENERGY STAR certification requirement. And since air conditioning accounts for 12% of all U.S. home energy expenditures, this is a perfect time to invest in the incredibly efficient Dual Inverter Technology. The innovative Dual Inverter technology is also powerful and quiet, operating at sound levels as low as 44dB. Plus, with built-in technology, you can control your air conditioner from anywhere on the LG ThinQ mobile app. You can start or stop cooling, change the cooling mode or set the temperature all from your smartphone. It also works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to change settings with simple voice commands.
4. Block the direct sun with window treatments
Close window treatments when the sun is shining brightly, reopen when it’s passed, and follow the natural movement from east to west each day. This can help keep spaces cooler by eliminating radiant heat and UV rays emitted by the sun. This also means appliances like air conditioners don’t have to work as hard to keep spaces cool. Keep in mind, if you need extra light during the day in locations where shades are closed, crack the shade or turn on minimal artificial sources and make sure that you use light bulbs that produce little heat, such as LED varieties.
5. Run a dehumidifier
Hot days can be hard enough, but add in high humidity, and it can feel like you’re melting. Increased moisture in the air makes it take longer for your sweat to evaporate, which therefore makes you feel hotter for a longer time. With a built-in drain pump, LG PuriCare Dehumidifiers can continuously remove moisture from the air in your home and drain that water directly into a sink, out a window, or down a drain. Four wheels mean it can be moved easily from room to room, plus the Safety Standby Mode ensures safe dehumidification that prevents overheating. Internal components are made of thermal-resistant materials.
Staying cool in your home doesn’t have to be complicated. Try these smart steps for a comfortable indoor environment, no matter how high temperatures soar this summer.
The ThinQ® Technology lets you control your LG air conditioner from anywhere. You can start or stop cooling, change the mode, or set the temperature while on the go. It also works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to change settings with simple voice commands. – (BPT)
