It certainly feels like winter is rearing its nasty head once again here in Brevard County, FL. Weren’t we just rolling up our sleeves and donning flip-flops just the other day? Seasonal changes in weather patterns are making the residents here in Melbourne, FL and the surrounding areas scratch our heads in bewilderment. One thing is for sure, however, if your HVAC unit is on the fritz, now is not the time to find out. Let’s look at some common ways families on the Space Coast can beat the heat and save money during cooler the cooler days.
Many homeowners make the mistake of turning their thermostats to high temperatures believing that the best way to heat their home is to create a sudden high temp and then return the thermostat to a more reasonable temperature once they are warm. This is an extremely energy inefficient thing to do. Rather than constantly changing your thermostat, try this instead: keep your home at a constant temperature that you and you family find enjoyable. This will help keep your heating costs down and your family satisfied.
Most homes have ceiling fans in multiple rooms. While we all know the advantages to celling fans in the warmer months, did you know they can help push warm air down during the cooler days? Hot air rises. By simply switching the direction your fan blades are rotating (by flipping a switch on the motor house), you can push all that hot air back down where it can keep you warm.
