Most people will agree that the “dog days of summer” are usually slow, lazy, and hot. This phrase took on a whole new meaning for me when I moved from Utah to the San Joaquin Valley of California. With temperatures in my new town ranging between 99⁰ – 114⁰ (F) each day, my heat tolerance was sorely tested. And, as temperatures rose, so did the power bill. I couldn’t keep my head in the freezer all day (not practical) nor could I turn the air conditioner down to “arctic” (not economical). Instead, I learned a few tips along the way on how to stay cool without going into debt.
Staying cool doesn’t have to drain your wallet. By making a few small changes, you can keep cool and enjoy the dog days of summer no matter where you live.
