Install a Programmable Thermostat
Programmable thermostats allow you to set temperature controls for your home. Users can set the temperature higher at night and times when they won’t be home. This saves you money and helps keep your HVAC unit in top running condition throughout the summer.
Update Your Guest Room
If guests are visiting this summer, make sure you have a comfortable place for them to stay. Shop our contemporary furniture auction for huge savings on furniture and home décor for your guest room.
Get Your BBQ Ready
Many people enjoy grilling in the summer. There’s just something wonderful about food cooked outdoors. Shop our kitchen auction for kitchenware and BBQ tools and accessories.
Install Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans work by pulling warm air up and pushing it down against the walls. This simulates a chilled breeze. Installing ceiling fans in high traffic rooms could help keep your home cool this summer. Just make sure the ceiling fan is set to turn in a counter-clockwise direction.
Seal Air Leaks
Sealing air leaks helps prevent cool air from seeping outside. Test the caulking and stripping around your doors and windows to ensure a proper seal. Replace caulking where necessary.
Install Outdoor Lighting
Complete your outdoor living space with the right outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting not only looks great, it also helps protect your family from injuries and intruders.
