Summer is upon us, and keeping the house cool without breaking your wallet can be a challenge. Heavy kitchen usage can make the heat inevitably worse, and make the whole house feel like it was swallowed up by the oven. Unless you’ve created a new invention that you’re hiding from the rest of the world, chances are you’ll be forced to use the stove or oven at some point this summer. The heat from these appliances can not only make the kitchen hot and stuffy, but without the proper ventilation and cooling systems, the rest of the house will also begin to absorb the heat..
Higher kitchen temperatures often result in cranking up the AC unit in hopes that the colder temperatures will somehow swallow up the hot air. Unfortunately, however, this rarely works, and usually results in a sky-high electricity bill. Kitchens can be difficult, if not nearly impossible to cool, due to the heat generated by kitchen appliances. This heat can throw off air conditioning units and have a counter-productive effect on cooling.
So, what is the best way to keep the whole house cool and your pocketbook full? Consider investing in a high-quality range hood that will help ventilate the hot kitchen air and remove it to the outside of the house. This process, in conjunction with a top-notch AC unit can better aid in the regulation of temperatures and cut down on your home’s electricity bill throughout the hot summer months.
