Tip #112: Keep Your Cool Landlords across the country are already seeing record-breaking temperatures, which inevitably sparks tenant complaints about the air conditioning.
Here are a couple of tips to pass along to your tenants that may help them keep their cool this summer:
Running the dishwasher, cooking and the clothes dryer all heat up a rental unit. By doing any of these chores later in the evening, a tenant may avoid a meltdown during the heat of the day.
Closing the blinds or curtains in rooms not being used during the day, as well as those receiving direct sunlight can help keep the rental unit a little cooler.
