How to Prepare Your Home for The Heat

Service The AC

Home in Florida without working AC? That might be a problem for you. Make sure your AC is in tip top shape before the real heat starts to arrive. We know running AC is expensive so try turning it off during the night and using fans instead.

Garden in The Eveninggarden, evening

The days are long, the sun is hot, and no home is incomplete without a nice garden. We feel your pain, its much to hot to water those flower during the day. So switch it up and garden in the late evening. You will be cooler and your garden will absorb more water that way.

Big jackets, puffy pants, time to store those items away. Choose a local self storage facility and store any winter items away. You will amazed at how much you de clutter your space when the seasonal items aren’t lying around.

Dark to Lightroom, light, white

Ditch anything dark inside your home. This means curtains, bedding, upholstery, literally anything dark should go. Why? Because dark things absorb the heat, making your home much hotter than it needs to be. Get some white window curtains and let all that light reflect away. Allowing sunlight on dark fabric is a recipe for fading so you are protecting your stuff as well.

Follow these instructions and we are sure you will beat that ever so hot Florida heat. By following these tips you will also save money!
