By the time we celebrate Father’s Day in June, temperatures here in the Corpus Christi area are usually soaring. Let the heat inspire your gifts for dad this year, and give him the gift of a cooler home. Check out these home comfort gift ideas.
Tune up or Upgrade the Air Conditioner
Pay for an A/C maintenance visit to evaluate and service his air conditioner. The technician can ensure that dad’s current air conditioner performs at its best to keep the home cool while keeping costs lower. If the A/C is old or just isn’t performing well anymore, consider helping him upgrade to a new cooling system.
Give him a Thermostat Upgrade
Frugal dads will appreciate gifts that help cut energy costs while keeping the home comfortably cool. A Wi-Fi thermostat does just that by offering more control over home temperature. Day or night, whether dad is at home or away, a Wi-Fi thermostat puts the control at his fingertips so he can adjust his home’s temperature whenever necessary. He can say goodbye to the extra energy costs of over-cooling a home when he is at work or out fishing, for example, but he won’t have to come home to a hot house.
Buy Him a New Fan
Nothing beats a cool breeze for keeping the heat at bay. Even with the best air conditioning, fans benefit the home by providing extra air circulation which lowers indoor humidity and evaporates perspiration from the skin. Any type of fan can help, but consider something extra nice with a modern, sleek design or a ceiling fan.
Provide More Shade
Shade reduces heat gain by shielding the home’s interior from strong solar rays. The effect is a cooler home, and this can mean lower cooling bills. Gifts related to this include awnings, patio umbrellas that partially shade an exterior wall, shutters, indoor insulated window treatments, and landscaping features such as trees, arbors, or trellises.
