Q & A
- Use your programmable thermostat to keep temperatures lower during the day while you’re out of the house, and at night while you’re under the covers.
- Keep window blinds and curtains open during the day, to let the sunlight naturally raise the temperature in your condo.
- Reverse your ceiling fans, so they push warmer air down instead of pulling it up.
- Check and (if necessary) replace the insulation around windows and doors to prevent heat loss.

As summer comes to a close, we are starting to ramp up to our busiest time of year which is when many buildings scramble to approve good weather projects as well as prepare for annual association meetings. If you are interested in running for the Board, please reach out to your property manager who will help you better understand what is involved in the position.
