Father’s Day is June 17th. What are you getting your dad?
He deserves something special. After all, he’s a pretty cool guy. His house, on the other hand, is starting to feel a little warm. Before the sweltering summer heat takes over, give your dad the gift he really wants: a house that stays as cool and comfortable as him.
Here are some ideas:
If your dad loves the latest gadgets, or just saving money, a new thermostat is the perfect Father’s Day gift. He can program it to his ideal comfort level while he’s home, but then set it to switch automatically to a more energy efficient setting while everyone’s out. You can even get a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat that can be controlled from anywhere, through his smartphone or other device.
Not only are these fans powerful and great for keeping the air circulating through your home, they’re also much quieter than a normal oscillating fan, and use less power. With one of these, your dad can keep cool on the warmest day without driving his energy bill through the roof.
One of the most efficient ways to keep your dad’s house cool is naturally. A deciduous tree, like an oak or maple, keeps the harsh rays of the sun away during the summer. Then in winter, it loses its leaves, letting the sun shine through to warm the house. Find a tree that will look good in your dad’s yard and plant it together for Father’s Day.
Keeping your dad’s HVAC system running smoothly will help him stay cool for years to come. When was the last time he remembered to schedule his annual maintenance visit, though? Make and pay for the appointment for him, and let an HVAC technician ensure his system is operating at peak performance. You might even throw in a new air filter, to make sure he has proper airflow and good air quality.
