Your dishwasher and washing machine contribute to some of the humidity and heat buildup in your home. One suggestion is to set your dishwasher’s drying cycle to “air dry” and wash laundry in cold water to keep excess moisture out of the air. A better suggestion is to run these appliances later in the evening when temperatures have dropped. Running a load of dishes or laundry after 7pm saves money because utility companies generally charge less per kilowatt hour during off-peak times.
These tips will help you stay cooler this summer and keep utility bills down. Taking advantage of natural sources of cooling and blocking the heat transfer are two ways to reduce heat buildup in the summer. Call your HVAC company for regular maintenance and AC tune-ups.
