Keep Summer Bills Low While Staying Cool

Temperatures will be rising this summer, and in some places, it is unbearable without using the air conditioner. Using the AC often will result in high utility bills, but it is also important to keep your home at a tolerable temperature.

If you are looking for ways to stay cool by not using the AC, consider the following methods to keep you cool:

During the day, close your windows and do your best to keep the sunlight from coming into your home. You might be tempted to leave the window open when there’s a breeze, but you won’t benefit from the breeze if it’s warm. In addition, avoid using appliances and lights that generate a lot of heat so that the inside of your home will be lower than outside.

Also think about visiting air conditioned buildings such as your local library or mall. Some malls have indoor playgrounds for kids which is a nice alternative to playing outdoors.

Finally, try to avoid using your stove or turning your oven on, and use a fan to circulate air throughout your home.


Time To Enjoy The Pool

Summer means fun in the sun by the pool.  Many mobile home parks have pools for the enjoyment of their residents.  It is very important that you are aware of the rules and regulations of your community regarding the use of the pool, hot tub and other facilities.

Most communities limit the use of these facilities to the residents.  For example, if a resident has a guest, guests must be accompanied by their resident adult host.   Resident cooperation helps make the swimming pool a fun place for all.

Pool rules are in place to make the community pool a fun and safe place for everyone to enjoy.  If you do not have a copy of your Park rules, be sure to ask the community manger for a copy.
