CLOSE YOUR BLINDS DURING SUMMER DAYS

Tips to improve your home and lower your energy bill


Cooling your home during the summer takes a lot of energy. You can help keep your home cool by limiting the amount of sunlight that enters your home.

 

 

what YOU NEED

 

Window blinds or window shades

 

 

what to do

 

Sunlight carries a large amount of heat and windows are the single largest heat inflow for most houses during summer days. Close your blinds when the sun is up to prevent heat from entering your home especially on the south and west facing windows, which receive the most direct sunlight.

Make sure to recycle your old refrigerator if you choose to get rid of it. Your local solid waste organization, garbage company or municipal government may take used appliances for a small charge or offer free curb side pickup on certain days.
