• Fan yourself. Fans circulate the air, keeping you feeling cooler even at higher temps.
  • Follow the shade. Spend time in rooms that do not receive direct sunlight.
  • Block the heat. Use window blinds and coverings at the sunniest time of day to reduce heat buildup.
  • Don’t add extra heat. Postpone using heat-producing appliances like clothes dryers, dishwashers and stoves until it is cooler.
  • Cookout, anyone? Consider using outdoor barbecue grills or microwaves instead of stoves or ovens, which can increase indoor heat.
