5 ways to stay cool

With temperatures and humidity soaring, keep the hot air out and the cold air in with five do-it-yourself projects for your home. Lisa Harry from the Home Depot joined Midday to walk through steps from each project. 
 
1. Windows: Updating your windows can be an investment, but a smart investment that saves you energy and gives your home a fresh look.
2. Programmable Smart Thermostats: Upgrading your outdated thermostat to one that is programmable can save more than $200 a year.
3. Ceiling Fans: Ceiling fans can complement any decor, increase comfort by cooling the room, and help save money on your energy bill. 
4. LED Light Bulbs: Replace incandescent lightbulbs with LEDs. Replacing standard lightbulbs with energy efficient LEDs will bring you immediate savings on your electricity bill and can be done in minutes.
5. Seal gaps with caulk:  Sealing air leaks around your home with caulking and insulation can save 10 - 20% on power bills.
