7 Tips to Stay Cool in Your Apartment

Maryland weather is known for its heat and humidity. Here are some tips to stay cool without breaking the bank.

  1. Use room-darkening curtains in windows that receive direct sunlight. Keeping the light out during the brightest parts of the day helps keep your apartment cool. 
  2. If you have a ceiling fan, make sure the blades are turning counter-clockwise to circulate the air. In the winter the blades should turn clockwise.
  3. Place fans in front of AC vents to enhance circulation.
  4. Run appliances later at night or earlier in the morning. Dishwashers and dryers produce a lot of heat.
  5. Incandescent lights produce a lot of heat. Turn them off or replace them with more energy efficient bulbs.
  6. Take a cool shower and sleep on cotton sheets.
  7. Stay hydrated throughout the day and wear loose, breathable clothing.
