Cool Off By Clearing the Clutter In Your Houston Home

What are you doing from 11 AM to 4 PM? If you’re in Houston when the temperature starts percolating then you better be indoors during those hours. That’s the peak time when the sun blazes the brightest and the heat radiates unrelentingly. There are some unfortunate Houston workers who won’t be able to avoid being out during those peak heat hours. Their best hope is for staying cool with lots of water or light clothing. The occasional Popsicle doesn’t hurt either!

If you’re smart you’ll stay out of that mid-afternoon heat and keep inside where your air conditioner is keeping things cool. Although most folks in Houston keep their air conditioners at 74°, anywhere between 72° and 78° is a good zone to be in. If you know a heat wave is coming Houston’s way then you should get the AC cranking the day before. This way your unit won’t be playing catch-up with all the heat that’s trapped inside the house. If you haven’t changed your filter on your air conditioning this season then you better make the switch. Air conditioning filters should be changed at the beginning of every summer season. In Houston where the ACs runs year-round, those filters should be swapped out every 5 to 6 months and should be fully serviced every two years.

There are some folks that prefer the old method of letting ceiling fans or table fans do the cooling off work. It certainly a more affordable option than keeping the AC running around the clock. Whether you have fans or an air conditioner going it’s essential that the air flow in your home is unblocked. Even when you point a fan directly at your body and blast away you’re still doing a disservice to the rest of the home if that air is not allowed to circulate. One of the best things you could do to help with that air flow is to reduce the amount of clutter in your home. To tackle that assignment it’s best to call Junk King Houston.

Junk King has teams of professional junk haulers standing by to cart away all the clutter that’s taking up space in your home. Because these are experienced movers you don’t have to worry about “overheating” them. They’ll know how to stay cool with frequent breaks.

Now, you might be asking yourself “do I have to pay for those breaks?” Actually you don’t! With Junk King your charge by the amount of space taken up in the truck not by how long it’s going to take to load up that truck.  If you take up less room you pay less. If you take up more room then you only pay what the estimate was. When it comes to clearing out the clutter to stay cool you’re not going to find a better bargain anywhere in Houston!
