How Do I Keep My Home Cool Without Air Conditioning?

When you live on the in the Tar Heel state, you quickly learn all about the humidity and hot summer temperatures. Although summer doesn’t officially kick off until June 22, RAL locals know that Raleigh sweat arrives long before June and lingers until October. So long are the days of 72 degrees..

As a dedicated AC repair in Cary, we are consistently asked, “What are some tricks to keeping my home cool without cranking the air conditioning?”

Our heating and cooling air specialists put together a few recommendations to offer a cool change without breaking the bank.

Get Indoor Plants: Some plants thrive in indoor settings and can have a natural cooling effect in your home especially when hot summers put the demand for air conditioning into overdrive. Aloe Vera, Bamboo palms, Peace lily, and Boston Fern – just to name a few. These house plants absorb the warm air and release oxygen and cool moisture into the air.

Get Outdoor Plants: Planting additional trees and shrubbery around your home is a great cooling alternative in the summertime heat. Our service experts suggest planting extra shade near your windows to block early and late-day sun.

Invest in Ceiling Fans: Warm weather is here and ceiling fans are a great way to improve air flow and keep you cool. Run your ceiling fan counter clockwise on medium to high speeds during hot weather only when the room is occupied.

Turn on Bathroom Fans: Do bathroom fans help cool a room? Yes! Do exhaust fans reduce heat? Yes! Bathroom exhaust fans help keep your home moisture-free by sucking the hot air out and replacing it with cool air. Ventilation is the least expensive and most energy-efficient way to cool a home.
