Beat The Heat This Summer – Cheap And Without AC

Global warming has proved to be extremely feisty the last couple of years.

Recently, the abnormal higher temperatures during the winter have only been signaling the fact that this summer is going to be an extremely hot one.

Avoid Excessive Temperatures Like A Pro

#1 Hydrate

This goes without saying, but most of us fail to hydrate properly even in the summer. 

If you find that water has a dull taste, try to flavor it up with slices of lemons, oranges, cucumbers etc. 

Eating fruits and salads will also help keep yourself refreshed while stacking you up with vitamins.

Extra tip: Use a cold cloth or ice pack to pat or place on strong-pulsed areas like your neck and wrists.

This will automatically cool your body temperature down.

#2 Wear Proper Clothing

Avoid dark colored and tight clothing. Switch to cotton clothes; besides letting your skin breath, you will also feel comfortable.

You can also wear a hat so that you shield your face and head from the scorching sun rays.

#3 Use Window Shutters/ Blinds 

During the peak hours, let the shutters down. This will make your home maintain a lower temperature because the sun rays don’t invade and heat up the interior of your home.

#5 Switch to Compact Fluorescent Lamps

90% of the energy emitted by incandescent bulbs is heat, therefore, swapping them with CFLs will not only cool the temperature of your home but your electric bill as well.

#6 Start Isolating

Simple things like closing doors or windows during the hottest hours of the day will play a huge difference when it comes down to keeping your house cooler.

#7 Fan Usage

Tricks, like putting a bowl filled with ice in front of it, or placing the fan in strategic places, will make your home a sweet cool haven.

Also, making the fan work counter-clockwise will ensure that the warm air is absorbed and the cool air is introduced into your room. Proper ventilation is key.

#8 Buckwheat Pillows

Weird as it may seem, investing in a couple of them will prove to be very satisfying. These pillows do not retain heat and provide great neck support.
