Summer Cooling Tips

Summer Cooling Tips

The high heat of summer can affect your pocketbook in many ways. Consider these money-saving tips:


  • Grill your meals outdoors to keep the kitchen cool.

  • Use insulated curtains on windows where the sun hits the hardest.

  • Keep the windows shut when your house is cooler than outdoors, but open windows when outside temperatures cool.

  • Caulk windows, doors and air conditioning spaces to keep the heat out and cold in.

  • Close vents and doors in unused spaces of your home.

  • Use fans to aid the air conditioning.

  • Service your air conditioner annually.

  • Upgrade to a smart thermostat.


  • To save fuel and prevent breakdowns, tune-up your vehicle regularly, change oil and air filters, service the air conditioner, inflate tires properly and follow the manufacturer’s specifications for additional upkeep.

  • Open the windows to let the hot air out before blasting your vehicle’s AC, then close them.

  • Close fresh air vents to keep the hot air out or open them and turn off the AC when cooler outside.

  • Park in the shade and garage when possible or use a sunshade when you can’t.

  • Avoid quick starts and stops, use the cruise control and reduce your speed.


  • Keep hydrated and use sunscreen.

  • Limit consumption of caffeine and alcohol, which can trigger dehydration.

  • Wear a sun hat and light-colored cotton.

  • Stay in the shade as much as possible.

  • Exercise indoors or early morning or late evening.

  • Use products like wearable ice and personal fans to help keep you cool.

  • Be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion, which include heavy sweating, rapid pulse, dizziness, fatigue, cool, moist skin with goose bumps, muscle cramps, nausea and headache.
