Ice the air! Running a fan? Set a bowl of ice cubes in front of it, The
melting ice will cool the breeze turning a regular fan into an actualair conditioner
Clever cooling sachet! Fill a clean sock with raw rice. Seal it with arubber band and put it in the freezer for at least 2 hrs. Then before
you turn in slide the frozen compress under the covers to cool the
sheets. Since the rice holds a chill for hours. Keep it handy tocounteract any hot spots
Work the windows! When it’s hotter out than in. Close the windows, Pullthe blinds and drapes. The more layers between you and the sun the
better.This can reduce heat coming in by up to 45 %
=Backward fan relief! This trick could help you cut the a/c at night:
Simply open your bedroom window and position a fan so it’s blowing the
air out. Forcing hot air out of a room is twice as effective as tryingto blow cool air in
Close your fireplace! An open damper actually sucks hot air into yourhouse. Just remember to open it before you light your first fire next
=Change your bulbs! Compact fluorescents produce almost 70% less heat
than standard bulbs generating the same amount of light
Life is like a jigsaw puzzle.But you don’t have the picture on the frontof the box to know what it’s supposed to look like.Sometimes you’re not
even sure if you have all the pieces.
