While temperatures continue to be on the warmer side of the thermometer, you might feel inclined to blast the AC.

But you might want to reconsider other ways to cool off indoors to help save money. Here are some ways you can effectively keep a room cool while not overworking the air conditioning unit.

Keeping the blinds in a room closed will help keep the sun out. Blinds such as thermal fabrics work great at keeping the sun and heat outside.

Ceiling fans are a worthy investment, but you have to make sure they are operating in an efficient way. During the summer, ensure they rotate counter clockwise to create a sufficient downdraft.

Thanks for watching!
