and close fireplace flue).
l Close blinds or drapes on sunny side of house;
add window awnings.
l Keep air filter clean. Don’t block air flow with
drapes or furniture.
l Ventilate attic (high temperature levels add to
normal cooling load).
l Try not to use heat producing appliances during
the honest part of the day. Turn lights, radios,
televisions, and other appliances off when not
needed.
l Keep heat registers and cool air returns closed
or blocked off so cooled air won’t escape.
l Use a vent fan in areas where cooking, laundry,
or bathing is done to pull out extra heat and
moisture near its source.
