Plant Trees Around Your Home
Trees are an all around wonderful addition to your property. They add beauty, attract birds, and best of all they help keep your home cool. Having just a few trees shading your home will you keep you cooler not only during a power outage, but all year long.
Keep Cool Air In
You can lose a lot of precious cool air during a power outage if your windows and doors aren’t sealed properly. Go to your local home improvement store and buy some caulking and weather stripping. Use the caulking to seal your windows and usethe weather stripping on the bottoms of your exterior doors.
Install a Solar Powered Air Conditioner
Solar powered air conditioners are become more readily available by the day. They are a great option if you want to remain cool during a power outage. Talk to your local ac repairman to find out what ac models are available in your area.
Keep Battery Powered Fans
A battery operated fan is a lifesaver in during a power outage. Opt for a fan with 18 inch blade diameter. Fans that size or larger have the capacity to keep a room cool, as opposed to a smaller fan that only keep one person cool.
