Tricks Against Summer Heat Without Air Conditioner

Because high temperatures are unbearable, specialists teach us some simple tricks against summer heat. If you don’t have air conditioner or you don’t like to use it, there are some methods that will help you to lower the temperature from your home:

Trick to instantly cool down the temperature

Put a large fan in the room where you stay the most and place a bowl full of ice cubes on top of a high chair. The airflow will cool off from the ice and will cool the whole room in just a few minutes.

Air the house in the morning

The outside heat stops you from opening the smallest window during the day, but during night is the prefect time to air the entire home. Also, open the doors of all the rooms to let the air circulate everywhere.

It’s very useful to air the house in the early hours of the morning, when you can enjoy fresh and cool outside air. Then pull the blinds. Let them pull down until the evening when the sun sets. In this way, the heat will not get so easily into your home.

Turns off the TV and the computer

Specialists also recommend to stop the electronics that emit heat, like your computer or TV

Don’t cook during the day

When the outside temperatures are high, it’s advisable, as far as possible, not to cook during the day. The stove flame will make it even hotter and the use of the oven to cook some food could turn into a mess both for you and your loved ones. It’s advised to prepare dishes that don’t require a long cooking time.

Wet the balcony

If the atmosphere in the balcony is hot, wet it with cold water and put an old sheet on the door, soaked in cold water and squeezed well. When the sheet is dry, you can wet it again.
