    Default Ways to keep apartment cool, please help

    I live in a one bedroom apartment (on the fourth floor) with no central

    air. I have a box fan but it's still very hot in my apartment. Should I

    get a window air conditioner or mobile one? Suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Kimya

    I live with no ac also...if you can close off 1 room and live in there with a window ac that would work (my house layout does not allow that) also spritzing water with a spray bottle in the air helps bring down the air temps.... It is 95 in my house but not horrible uncomfortable with all the fans going

    good luck:

    <SPAN class="957232619-19072007">A window unit can be mobile (by that, I mean you can take it with you when you move) and prob would be the most efficient.

    I think a mobile one would be best because it wouldn't

    need to be installed and get worn out with the

    weather.

    Kimya,
    Having been in your situation about three years ago, I would highly recommend the window a/c unit. It cools a lot of area, and if you have a box fan, that will extend the coolness to other rooms. If you can get another box fan, it would help to send the breezes even further.


    Also, something I and hubby did before we got an a/c window unit was to soak towels in room temp water and lay them on ourselves at night. The room temp water was very cooling and very soothing, and helped us to go right to sleep.


    HTH,
    Bron

    An oscillating fan on a stand - available at Target for under $30 should help. Esp. if you open a window and get the cross ventilation going.

    Hearing about the towels made me laugh. Me and my husband did nearly the same thing last weekend when the inside of our apt (on the 3rd floor) was 92 degrees, Except we took it one step further. We sprayed the towels with watern and put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes THEN laid on them.
