The hot summers in Macon can take it’s toll on you and your air conditioning system. Here are some summer cooling tips that will help you cool off, save money and put less strain on your air conditioning system.
Reduce Your Body Heat
Reducing your body heat is a great way to cool yourself down. Wearing clothes that are made of natural fabrics can reduce your body heat. Cotton, wool, silk, linen and hemp allows your body to breathe better than synthetic fabrics. Eating cool and staying hydrated will also reduce your body heat. Eating sandwiches and salads during the summer keeps your body at lower temperature than large and protein rich meals. Drinking water and staying hydrated helps regulate your body heat and will keep it cooler during the hot summer weather. Avoid drinking too many caffeine and alcohol products, because they can dehydrate your body.
Cover Your Windows
Covering your windows can reduce the amount of heat that enters your home. Close all your windows, blinds and curtains when your not home to keep your home cool. Dark colored curtains and shades are very effective at blocking out solar heat. Open the windows at night, if it’s cool enough, to give your home better air circulation. Also use your fans to cool your home and use energy efficient light blubs to reduce the heat produced inside your home.
