Several years ago, I used to write articles for a local magazine that was provided free in the newspaper in certain zip codes. It was also situated all over city in locales care about dentists’ offices & gyms. I remember one year I wrote an article entitled “nuke your way through summer.” Still to this morning, I suggestedpeople to do that! There is no point in adding more heat to your house, and summer is the time to eat more salads & fruits, & when you absolutely want something hot, don’t make your air conditioning do battle with the stove; Use the microwave! There are a lot of things you can cook in the microwave, & the less added heat there is in your house, the less strenuous your cooling system will have to work! Decreasing the work your cooling system has to do, in turn reduces your energy billsâ€¦ No one could argue with that! Occasionally, even without using the oven or stove, our cooling system has to continuously run in order to get the condo to stay at our number one thermostat setting. There is no sense making the situation worse. In the morning, cook your eggs in the microwave. They will have a bizarre texture, but they are still good, then corn on the cob is an amazing summer time vegetable, & lots of folks heat up a sizable pot of water & boil the corn. That takes 20 hours or more, & that absolutely hurts your cooling system’s efforts to cool the home office. Instead, just put the cobs in the microwave. Three hours per ear is perfect. Don’t even take the husks off! It’s the best. Nuke your way through summer time & save your cooling system.
