How To Prepare For The Summer Heat

Summer is officially here, and with it comes the heat! If you're not prepared, the summer sun can be a real scorcher. That's why we've put together this list of tips to help you get your home ready for the summer heat. Keep reading for four tips that can help you beat the heat this summer!


Get A Ceiling Fan

A ceiling fan is a must-have during the summer. Not only does it help keep you cool, but it also helps circulate the air in your home. This can help make your home feel more comfortable, even on the hottest days.


Install An Air Conditioner

If you really want to stay cool this summer, then you need to install an air conditioner. An air conditioner can provide relief from the heat and make your home feel much more comfortable. If you don't have central AC, consider installing a window unit or portable AC unit.


Open Your Windows At Night

During the day, keep your windows closed to keep the heat out. But at night, open your windows to let in the cool air. This will help cool down your home and make it more comfortable to sleep in. Having your windows open at night will also help keep fresh air moving through your home which helps prevent your house from every feeling like it is full of stale air.


Use A Ceiling Fan And Air Conditioner Together

If you have both a ceiling fan and an air conditioner, use them together to get the best results. The ceiling fan will help circulate the cold air from the AC unit, and because the ceiling fan will help you feel cooler than just using air conditioning alone, it will let you use your air conditioner at a higher temperature.

We hope these tips help you stay cool during the summer heat! When you need a great new ceiling fan or the latest new light fixtures for your home, visit the Capitol Lighting Gallery showroom. You can also visit our online store to see the full selection of lighting fixtures that are available.
