There may be times when the heat makes leaving the house an unappealing option. If that’s the case then you can relax with a book, an art project, a good movie and the AC running!

Smiley360 bonus tip – to keep electricity costs down, try turning your air conditioner to a
slightly higher temperature and set up fans with cups of ice in front of them. The AC will remove the moisture from the air and the fans will blow the cool air on you as the ice evaporates.
