Your air conditioner is struggling to keep your home a comfortable temperature. You find it difficult to sleep at night and taking a cool shower is something you find yourself doing usually a couple of times a day. The easy solution to this problem is calling your St. Paul air conditioning service company and having the problem resolved. But, you feel there really is no need to spend money to fix the air conditioner. Maybe when you get the chance, you will take it upon yourself to see if you can fix the problem yourself. Good luck with that. In the meantime, let us at least give you some pointers on how you can keep your home cooler, until you come to your senses and have the unit fixed by a professional.
If your air conditioner is faltering and not keeping your home cool, avoid using the stove and oven. The heat generated by your stove to cook that pizza for dinner will only add to your already hot kitchen. Best if you simply slice the pizza up and toss each piece in the microwave.
If your home is too hot because your air conditioning is broken, you might want to keep the sun at bay. That is, close all your curtains and shut all your doors so the burning energy of the sun cannot penetrate indoors and heat your home further.
If your air conditing system is failing to cool your home, do anything possible to keep the hot air outside. This includes taping up that drafty dog door. If Fido needs to go outside, he can just simply use the back door, even if it is an inconvenience to you.
Better still, just give us call if your a/c is on the fritz and avoid these silly pointers altogether.
