Take A Cold Shower To Cool Off This Summer

Wow! It's hot out! As earnest energy watchers, what can we do to cool off that doesn't drive up the utility bills? Take a cold shower! Take it from me, taking a brief, cold shower in the summer can really change your perspective on the heat.

Keeping showers brief keeps humidity out of the air — much of the power consumed by your air conditioning is used to remove the humidity from the air.

Keeping showers cold also avoids using hot water, which saves you money first because you don't have to heat that water and second because the waste heat from your shower does not have to be removed by your air conditioner.

Give it a try!
