3 Ways to Prepare Your GA Home For the Summer Heat

Living in Ball Ground, GA, our clients are aware of the steaming summer heat that is inevitable. At The Sanford Group, we want our clients to prepare their homes from the summer heat and stay cool through the warmest months. 

Invest in Ceiling Fans

Head over to your local hardware stores for ceiling fans in the rooms you frequent the most. Although you have an AC unit, some days in the summer will reach temperatures that are hard for your AC to keep up with. The assistance of ceiling fans spread the cool air and give the AC unit a chance to catch up and not wear out as quickly. 

Darkening Curtains

You can purchase darkening curtains for your home. They are designed to eliminate sunlight and heat from coming into your home. This keeps the cool air inside your home and keeps your air conditioning from overworking on the hottest of days. With your air conditioning working less, it will help with utility expenses throughout these months. 

Inspect Your Windows

Over time, harsh weather can damage your windows, allowing cool air to escape and external heat to enter your home. This is very common in older homes that have original windows. If this sounds like your house, it is time to inspect your windows. If they are not properly insulating your home, they need to be replaced so that you can keep the warm air out of your home this summer.
