Insane Badass Ideas Which Actually Works!
However, if you have no way or do not want to undergo a renovation to install an air conditioner or a cooler, be aware that there are alternatives that can keep your room cooler under hot temperatures.
Not only will you save in your energy bills, but the environment may also thank you a lot.
So, let's see what these alternatives methods are:
Keep yourself Cooler from the Inside
The very first step is to always be hydrated so that you can cool off yourself from the inside out.
Make it a habit to drink fresh drinks, such as iced tea, natural fruit juices and lots of water.
Close the Curtains
Keep the curtains closed. Despite being obvious, this solution is often overlooked.
A very high amount of heat enters the house through the windows, covering them (especially those where the sun shines) with curtains can help you lower down your room's temperature up to 20º degrees.
Open the Windows at Night
Although keeping the windows covered during the afternoon is a good idea, keeping them opened during the night can help you feel cool air from the outside, since the temperature is always cooler in nights compared to days.
So, take advantage of this time to open the windows and let the fresh air in.
Have Plants in your Room
Some species of plants are suitable for indoors. They make the environment more comfortable by balancing the humidity of the air and renewing the oxygen.
Creating such micro climates inside your room can be a very smart move.
Also, if possible then planting trees in front of the windows that receive direct sunlight can also be of great advantage since it creates shadows, and also helps to refresh the environment.
Turn your Fan in to a Makeshift A.C.
The fans does not cool the room, instead they only circulate the air that is in the room.
In order to have the fan circulate cooler air, fill a bowl with ice cubes and position it diagonally in front of a large fan. So, now when the air hits the ice it will spread cooler air due to the fan's air circulation process.
Use Buckwheat Pillows
Buying pillows that are filled with buckwheat is also a very smart decision. As there are naturally occurring empty spaces between the wheat husks, these pillows do not conserve your body heat like conventional pillows do.
There are some aromas that freshen up the environment.
Add a few drops to the water and wipe the floor with a damp cloth or use the mixture to spray it in the air a few times a day.
This will lighten up the mood and will make you feel fresh.
Freeze Up your Bed Right
To make the bed more comfortable, prefer sheets and pillowcases with 100% cotton.
The tip also applies to other household pieces that come into direct contact with the body.
Spray fully iced water on your bed sheet, and cover yourself with a wet towel, just before going to bed, this will do wonders.
