Warm temperatures are heating up our homes this summer. With the arctic chill of this past winter well behind us, we now have to rely on more than mother nature to keep us cool. To help keep your home cool and prepare for the heatwave, check out these 7 checklist to-dos.

Plus, you’re eligible for a Free Mortgage Checkup. See how you can start saving today with a better home loan.* If you are in the market to buy a home, get a loan pre-approval so you can shop with confidence to get the home of your dreams.

7 Home Cooling Checklist To-Dos:

Sun icon with #1Check Your Lightbulbs
Believe it or not, these little beams of light put out a lot of heat. If you don’t have energy-saving bulbs, consider replacing them with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that can help you eliminate excess heat and save money over time.

Sun icon with #2Ceiling Fan Direction
Did you know that the rotation pattern of your ceiling fans should change in the summer and winter? Yes, during warmer temps, the direction should be counter-clockwise to keep cooler air pushing down, and the speed should be kept at high. Be sure to do the reverse during the colder months.

Sun with #3Natural Cooling
To save on air conditioning costs, during the evening hours, grab a hand-held fan, open windows, and use screen doors to keep the air flowing throughout your home. If that doesn’t quite do the trick, a damp towel draped around your neck can do wonders to cool down your body temp.

Sun icon with #4Doors, Cracks, And Gaps
Inspect your home for places where hot air can get in, and your frosty inside air can escape. Once found, seal the open spaces. It’s also a good idea to close the doors to any rooms that aren’t being used. No need to waste valuable energy on inanimate objects.

Sun icon with #5Shutter Out The Heat
A real deal-breaker is leaving your windows that are being hit by direct sunlight uncovered. Be sure to close blinds and window treatments. You can also go all out with dark tint and double panes to see both monetary and comfort-level savings throughout the entire year.

Sun icon with #6Smart Thermostat
It’s money well spent to invest in smart home products that can help with your home’s energy efficiencies. With a smart thermostat, you can adjust inside temps by remote and program your daily and evening cooling activities.

Sun icon with #7Loungewear
To resist the temptation to turn down the a/c, choose lightweight attire made of breathable cotton to wear and add to your bedding. Nothing beats a warm sunset evening more than relaxing with a refreshing beverage in cool and comfy clothing.
