Keep Your Apartment Cool This Summer Without Relying on the Central A/C or Window Unit

It’s always helpful to learn something new! At The Link, the premier apartments in Northwest Houston, we love to provide you with fun, thought-provoking tidbits that will make you reflect on different aspects of life.  

Speaking of which, have you been frequenting your apartment home more often, whether you’re now working from home or just consider yourself more of a homebody these days? If so, here are a few tips, courtesy of the best luxury apartments in the Energy Corridor, to help you beat the heat, keep your apartment cooler, and save money in the process.

Invest in Window Treatments

When you’re trying to save money on your electricity bill, one of the easiest is to invest in window treatments. If anything, it will keep the sun from coming through your windows. Try curtains, blinds, and other methods for controlling the amount of natural sunlight coming through your windows.

Update Your Weathering Strips

Like window treatments, replacing bad or worn-out weathering strips on your doors is another great way to keep cool air in your apartment home – and heat during the wintertime. You can easily purchase these items from a local Lowe’s or The Home Depot at a low cost.

Rely on Your Ceiling Fan

A ceiling fan, or floor fan, if you’re willing to purchase one, are great tools in helping you cut down your energy costs. This way, you can keep air circulating through your main living spaces and bedroom, without having to rely on central air or an even costlier window unit.
