Eco-Friendly Ways to Keep Your Home Cool

Installing ceiling fans in your home can help keep temperatures moderate and cut down on your cooling bill…..

(Family Features)When it’s hot outside, heat can seep into your home and make it unbearable. However, there are sustainable, eco-friendly solutions to maximize comfort and cooling when the thermometer creeps upward without racking up an outrageous electric bill or large carbon footprint.

While some options for keeping your home cool involve an upfront investment, over time they’ll save money, and the environment, for years to come. If you’re looking for ways to cool your home during even the hottest days, consider these ideas from the experts at Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating.

Adjust Ceiling Fans

Installing ceiling fans in your home can help keep temperatures moderate and cut down on your cooling bill. For best results, those ceiling fans should be adjusted seasonally. During warm weather months, fans should rotate counterclockwise at a higher speed to push air downward instead of up toward the ceiling, which can lead to a more comfortable temperature in your home.
U
pgrade Your Air Conditioner

If your home’s climate control is lacking, it may be time to invest in a new HVAC system – particularly if your current one is more than 15 years old. An energy-efficient option like Mitsubishi Electric’s sleek and modern MLZ One-Way Ceiling Cassette is designed for easy installation and saves energy by monitoring room conditions to make automatic adjustments to maintain the temperature you choose. To improve your indoor air quality, the MLZ uses reusable air filters, which are easy to remove, wash and reinstall. In Dry mode, the unit makes the air feel fresher by removing excess moisture.

Additionally, these ceiling cassettes can be programmed to operate around your life using a remote control, smartphone or tablet. Whether gone for the day or on an extended vacation, you can monitor your system from an app, ensuring you won’t return to a home that’s blazing hot.

Reduce Incoming Sunlight During the Day

Direct sunlight coming into your home through windows, doors or skylights can increase the temperature. To help reduce unwanted heat as the sun rises higher during the day, consider closing your blinds or installing light-colored blinds that reflect rather than absorb the sun’s heat. Other options such as blackout curtains or reflective window panels can have the same effect, helping reduce warmth trapped inside.

If closing all your blinds or covering every window isn’t an option or makes you feel claustrophobic, focus on any south- or west-facing rooms in your home, as these are typically the trickiest to keep cool during the warmest hours of the day – usually from late morning until early evening. Exterior window shades and awnings can also be useful options if you’re looking to reduce the amount of heat that enters your home, but still want to take advantage of the natural light.

Change Your Light Bulbs

Since warmer weather also equates to more sunshine, turning off the incandescent lights in your house when possible can cut down on extra heat and save on your energy bill. Though the soft yellow glow of incandescent light bulbs can create a nice ambiance, it also gives off a lot of heat. Swapping out those old light bulbs for more efficient, LED bulbs can cut down on the amount of heat your light fixtures emit. If you can’t replace them, minimizing their usage – particularly when having a light on in a room is unnecessary – can make a difference.

Strategically Plant Trees and Shrubs

Planting trees or shrubs near sunlight-facing windows can make a big difference when it comes to the temperature inside your home by shielding the sun’s rays. While planting trees strategically around your home is more of a long-term plan, the benefits can also last for many years to come in terms of shade, added curb appeal and overall betterment of the earth.

Start by focusing on west-facing walls, where the sun is typically the strongest. Choosing trees native to your area can decrease maintenance, and those that bloom in spring and drop leaves in the fall offer year-round benefits by providing both shade and heat in accordance with the season. Vines and other tall shrubs are options for quicker results, but they may also require more long-term maintenance.

Reduce Appliance Usage

To help minimize running appliances and equipment that generate a lot of heat, like stoves and ovens, choose to cook outdoors or opt for quicker meals you can prepare using the microwave, which doesn’t heat the house to the same extent. While grilling and eating outside more frequently may require an awning or gazebo to stay cooler, it can beat the alternative of warming up your oven, and ultimately your home, for an extended period of time.

Reducing your usage of other heat-producing appliances such as computers, dishwashers, clothes dryers, curling irons and hair dryers can also help keep interior temperatures comfortable and energy use low. Try using these appliances earlier in the day to minimize the extra load placed on your air conditioner.

Keeping cool during warm weather months doesn’t have to be complicated. Take advantage of these measures to reduce your home’s heat load and energy bill. Find more tips for cooling your home at mitsubishicomfort.com.

BVHS Weekend Column: Cologuard Test

The Cologuard test will likely assist in the fight against colon cancer when used in the appropriate setting…..

Cologuard Test,  by Jay Alammar, MD, Surgical Associates of Northwest Ohio

Jay Alammar, MD

 

Colorectal cancer is a common disease, and colon cancer screening continues to be of utmost importance. Preventing cancer or detecting and removing it early when it is still localized greatly impacts colon cancer related mortality.

 

Several screening tests are currently available in our armamentarium to aid in the detection of precancerous polyps and early detection of colon cancers. Each of the available tests has its pros and cons in regard to sensitivity, effectiveness, convenience, cost, frequency, degree of invasiveness and associated risks. Screening colonoscopy is considered by many experts in the field to be the gold standard due to its greatest impact on prevention and early detection of colorectal cancer. Colonoscopy detects about 95 percent of lesions greater than 6 mm.

 

A new test called Cologuard was approved by the FDA in 2014 for patient’s between ages 50 and 85. The test is appealing because it is noninvasive, completed at home, requires no prep or sedation, and is covered by Medicare. With the Cologuard test, a stool sample is obtained, packaged and shipped to the company using the provided kit. The results are usually reported to the ordering physician in a couple weeks.

 

Other facts about Cologuard Testing include the following:

  • The test detects 92 percent of colon cancers.
  • The test rules out cancer in 87 percent of cases.
  • The test only identifies 42 percent of precancerous polyps.
  • The test specificity decreases when the patient’s age increases.
  • The test does not diagnose cancer or polyps. Positive tests require the patient to have a colonoscopy to make a diagnosis.
  • The test should be repeated every three years.
  • The test should not be used in patients with history of colon cancer or colon polyps, family history of colon cancer, personal history of ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or symptomatic hemorrhoids.
  • The test should not be used in patients with anemia or those who have gastrointestinal symptoms such as a change in bowel habits.

 

The Cologuard test will likely assist in the fight against colon cancer when used in the appropriate setting. It is another weapon added to our colon cancer screening arsenal. The test is not intended to replace colonoscopy, but it is considered a second-tier option for the patient that refuses a colonoscopy. Considering the above facts, colonoscopy will continue to be the best screening modality.

 

Talk to your health care provider about colon cancer screening and the best option for you.

Extreme Heat: Stay Safe This Summer 

Home Instead offers tips to protect older loved ones

July 20, 2019 – Summer is here and warmer weather is the perfect time for families to enjoy outdoor activities such as gardening and picnics. However, for seniors, extreme temperatures during the summer months can pose health risks. In fact, the CDC notes that adults 65 and older do not adjust as well as young people to sudden changes in temperature, making them more vulnerable to heat related health problems such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, sunburn and heat rash.

 

“June through September is when most families plan trips and spend extended periods of time outdoors,” said Lakelyn Hogan, Gerontologist and Caregiver Advocate of Home Instead Senior Care. “It’s important for older adults to participate in these family activities, while taking the steps necessary to ensure their comfort and safety. Be sure your loved one takes frequent indoor breaks, carries and properly stores medications, and wears light colored clothing.”   

 

Home Instead encourages families to take the following steps to help keep their loved ones safe this summer:

 

  • Make sure your aging loved one takes preventive health measures – like preparing for summer heat exposure by choosing protective clothing. Mayo Clinic recommends wearing loose-fitting, lightweight clothing to allow the body to better cool itself naturally. Adding a broad-brimmed hat or cap can also help keep internal temperatures low and protect from sunburn – a condition that heightens the risk of heat stroke by reducing the skin’s ability to regulate heat.

 

  • Plan ahead to avoid strenuous activity during the hottest parts of the day. Many activities such as running errands or visiting friends and family members can be scheduled for the morning or evening hours, when temperatures are lower and the sun’s rays are less direct. If the time cannot be adjusted, stay hydrated and rest frequently in a cool area to avoid the increased risk of overheating.

 

  • Pay attention to symptoms of heat-related health problems. The University of Connecticut found that older adults are the most susceptible demographic to dehydration due to reduced kidney function that occurs naturally as we age, as well as the frequent use of diuretics often taken for high blood pressure. Be aware of muscle cramps, dizziness, headaches, constipation or impaired memory or concentration function, which can signal dehydration. Also watch for the symptoms of heat stroke; high body temperature, confusion or slurred speech, flushed skin, rapid breathing and a headache.

 

  • Take action to cool someone experiencing heat-related symptoms. Once a symptom is identified, immediate action is critical to treat the senior and prevent escalation. Mayo Clinic shares three steps:
    • Get the person in the shade, indoors and out of the heat
    • Remove any excess clothing to help the body breathe
    • Cool the person with whatever means available (e.g. place a wet towel on the person’s head, neck or armpits or submerge the individual in cool water)

 

  • Monitor and/or assist with medications. According to a recent survey of seniors conducted by Home Instead, many seniors taking five or more prescription medications admit challenges in managing their medications. Education programs such as Let’s Talk about RxSM provide families with resources to help manage medications more efficiently and avoid any mishaps. This is particularly important during the summer months, as some prescribed medications may affect a senior’s natural ability to stay hydrated and dissipate heat. Talk with your senior and their doctor about any increased risks connected to medications.
