Energy Saving Tips from The Village
In an effort to provide a quality living experience and an overall healthy environment, the Management at Miracle Village would like to provide our residents and friends with the following energy saving tips:
Draw blinds, shades or drapes to block the sunlight during the hottest part of the day. Do this especially on south and west-facing windows.
Reduce strenuous activities. The more you do, the higher the body temperature will rise which will cause you to run your air conditioning unit more.
Check with your pharmacist and/or doctor to ensure that medications will not cause increased heat-related problems.
Avoid too much sun. Use sunblock with at least SPF 30 or higher when going outdoors for a prolonged length of time.
Watch out for heat exhaustion warning signs such as weakness, nausea, heavy sweating, rapid pulse, and/or fainting.
Leave space between your refrigerator and the surrounding walls and cabinets to allow air to circulate around the coils.
