Rental Homes

Are you searching for tips on how to keep your rental property cool during the summer months? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, we will provide you with several tips that you can use for maintaining a cool and comfortable rental property all summer long.

Tip #1 – Get Your Air Conditioner Maintained

The first thing that you should do to keep your rental property cool during the summer months is to make sure that your air conditioner is in excellent shape.

This tip is important because, if it’s been some time since your air conditioner has had any type of maintenance the unit may be in poor working condition and should be seen by an air conditioner professional.

Besides having your air conditioner maintained by a professional, one easy thing that you can do right now to ensure that your air conditioner is functioning as it should is to replace the air filter. 

This is an easy fix that any tenant can do themselves and it’s also cost effective because a typical air conditioner air filter only costs about $8 at your neighborhood Walmart.

Tip #2 – Invest in Thermal Curtains

Another important thing that you can do to keep your rental property cool during the summer months is to invest in thermal curtains.

These curtains are very affordable and can be found at any store in the local area for less than $30 per panel. Investing in thermal curtains is important because, unlike traditional curtains, thermal curtains will block out the heat during the summer months and also help to keep your rental property better insulated during the winter as well too.

Tip #3 – Check All Doors and Windows for Gaps

Last of all, but most important, another vital thing that you can do during the summer months is to check your doors and windows for gaps. This should be done outside while your air conditioner is running. If there are gaps under your door or window, you should be able to feel cold air escaping from your home.
