Run Those Fans

The hardest part of the replacement project is the end part when the windows are going into the home and the summer heat is raging outside. It doesn’t matter how fast you run your AC, it’s not going to keep up when windows are being removed from your house and replaced with new windows. The installers try very hard not to let much air in or out, but the hot air outside is going to come in. The best you can do is run the fans you have in the home at full force to keep the air circulating as best you can.

Set Up A Pool

If you don’t have a pool in your yard, and you can’t stay cool in your house, you will wish you had one. Instead of spending tons of money putting in a pool just for this one day, you might want to set up a kiddie pool and dip your feet in that all afternoon. Set up a lawn chair, let the installers work inside, and get a book and read in the shade. You can enjoy ice cold drinks and fan yourself between chapters.replacement windows in Richardson TX
