Knowing how to cool down a room is a great skill to have as you await the summer season or while you are at it. The points discussed below will give you several ideas you can take advantage of to ensure a room stays cool while it is hot.
One method you can use to keep a room cool is by shutting down the blinds by either rolling them up or down, whichever way that is your personal preference. The other method that you can use to keep a room cool while it is hot is to try the ice and fan trick which is achieved by placing a bowl of ice directly in front of a fan. This is because cotton breathes better than any other material say linen, silk etc., and it is able to wick away sweat from your body and absorbs it giving your body a cooling effect all night long.
Cotton material also provides better air circulation which leads to more absorption of sweat, leaving a cooling effect to your body. Another method to keep a room cool while it is hot is by opening your windows strategically. Regular fluorescent bulbs not only get spoiled faster than LED bulbs but also radiate so much heat than energy-efficient LED bulbs which last longer and can operate under much cooler conditions.
This method is advised because using oven and grills add extra heat that you are trying to get rid of and if it necessitates you use them, do so early in the morning before the day warms up. This can be achieved by placing each fan across from an open window facing the outside, this pulls heat from your house directing it outside while sucking in cool air from outside into the house causing a breeze. When operating a ceiling fan, make sure that it is rotating in a counter-clockwise direction during the summer and in a clockwise direction during the winter for maximum efficiency.
Another method of ensuring your room stays cool when it is hot is by repairing you’re A/C unit if it is damaged or need replacement. A clogged air filter not only causes your A/C unit to work harder while taking up too much electricity but also does very minimal cooling work, this leads to costly and inefficient cooling of your house. Listed above are some points that when followed carefully will help you enjoy cool breezes in the summer season while everyone else is complaining of too much heat and hot rooms.
