Cooling Your 3 Bedroom Apartment
When renting a larger space like a 3 bedroom apartment, it can become more important to manage your utility use. Air conditioning is a necessity of living in a desert climate like Phoenix for most of the year. To prevent racking up a huge bill, experiment with using floor and ceiling fans in different rooms to direct the flow of the air conditioning. It can also be helpful to keep the apartment shaded during the day, especially for windows facing west in the afternoon. During the spring and fall months, temperatures in the desert usually drop dramatically after the sun sets, so you can cool your apartment off during the night by opening windows and creating a cross-breeze. By being creative, you can alleviate temperature or utility concerns.
