4 Ways to Use the Summer Heat to Your Advantage

Community

The summer is truly heating up! Instead of using high temperatures as an excuse to crank up the air conditioning, use the heat to your advantage and follow these helpful tips to save you energy in the remaining months of summer!

1. Let your hair air dry

No need to plug in your blow dryer and waste electricity when it is so hot out! Let your hair air dry while going for a walk or sitting outside. Your hair will dry quickly in the summertime heat.

2. Line-dry your clothes

Instead of using your dryer, hang your clothes on a clothes line outside and they will be dry before you know it. This will save energy and make your clothes smell like sweet summertime.

3. Grow your own food

Use the sun to support a garden! Grow vegetables and herbs to make delicious summertime salads. This will cut down on your carbon footprint and give you fresh organic food at the same time! This is a fun activity for the whole family that doesn’t waste any energy.

4. Make your own sun tea

Why boil water or run to the store for tea when you can make your own sun tea without using any energy. Put your tea bags into a pitcher of water with some lemons in it and place the pitcher outside. The sun and heat will brew your tea for you! Add some ice and you will have a nice refreshing glass of sun tea in no time!
