Making Moving Easier

I still remember the first time I decided to move my business. I had a small masonry company at the time, and we didn't think that it would be that hard to load everything into a few trucks. A few weeks later, we found ourselves struggling to maintain our business, clean up our old location, and get set up in our new place. Although I have owned several businesses over the years, moving an entire company is never easy. I decided to dedicate this website to helping other small business owners like myself, so that you don't have to endure the same hassles that I did. I hope that you find the information that you need, and that your next move can be successful.

3 Things Every Homeowner Can Do To Keep Their House Cool

Many homeowners are looking for ways to keep their house cool without overpaying on their utilities. If you are not careful, you can easily spend more money than is necessary on your energy bill. Luckily, there are things that you can do to keep your house cool without breaking the bank in energy bills. Here are some tips.

1. Weatherstrip Your House

Many times the house is unable to hold the temperature constant because the weatherstripping is no longer effective. For instance, you might notice that the doors leading into the house don't close tightly. There could even be some sunshine that comes through the doors around the edges when they are closed. If you can see light from those areas, you can bet the air is escaping through. This is why you should be checking your weatherstripping often and replacing when needed. Weatherstripping is very affordable and could save you a good deal of money over the long run.

2. Circulate Air

Many times you don't need to blow cool air into the house, all you need to do is circulate the air. This can easily be done with a ceiling fan or a portable fan. You can power a fan for pennies on the dollar and can keep the fan on all day, cooling the house without costing you hardly anything. Conversely, if you have the AC blasting throughout the house, it will keep it cool, but it will also cost you a lot of money. So, turn down the AC and keep fans going instead.

3. Close The Windows

Letting sunlight into your house can cause the house to heat up more than it needs to. When you allow the sun to enter your home, it will cause the temperature to rise significantly, just as the suns rays heat up outside. This is why it is best to close the blinds or drapes during the hottest parts of the day, especially when you are not home. If you are going out for errands, close the drapes. There is no reason to make the AC work extra hard to keep the house cool when no one is there to enjoy it. So close the drapes whenever you leave the house, or when it is the hottest part of the day. This will save you money in the long run.

By doing these simple things, you can keep your house cool without spending a lot of money. For more information, contact local professionals like Shakley Mechanical Inc.
