Saving Money And Staying Cool Without A/C
Not sure when the last time was you felt the need to run the a/c for the day only to see the spike in you electric bill but for me it wasn't that long ago. Since then I have adopted some of these easy tips to keep the house cool and now I virtually never feel the necessity of turning to the a/c to keep my cool.
Now the video above has many ways to make the house cooler so go ahead and watch but these are my go to cooling practices.
- Opening the windows at night when the air is cool and then shutting them in the morning. when it's really going to be hot I add a fan blowing the air in.
- I pull my roman shades during the morning. They have white cotton backings.
- I do put the throw pillows away in the summer and vacuum a bit more often.
- And finally I do use cotton sheets and I wash them more often in summer.
For new tips both the towel and floor dampening was an interesting tip and the frozen bottles in front of the fan was a little over the top but you gotta say it is affordable and if it works who'd complain. Keep cool.
