Air Conditioner Alternatives

Air Conditioner Alternatives Heating and Cooling

If you don’t have an air conditioner, are paying too much for central A/C, or just want to find some air conditioner alternatives to keep your house cool during the summer months, you have a few options:

– Try setting up some small and/or standing fans around your house. Turn on your ceiling fans if you have them.

– Make sure to close your windows, blinds, and curtains during the day to keep the warm air out and the cool air in during the hottest hours.

– Fill up a glass bowl full of ice and place it in front of a fan. As the ice melts, the fan will create a chilled breeze throughout the area.

– Try taking a spare bed sheet, spray it with cold water, and put it up in front of an open window. The incoming breeze with blow through the sheet and create a nice, cool breeze.

– Cut down on activities that use up a large amount of electricity and create heat (i.e. turn off computers when not in use, air dry your clothes instead of using a dryer, or hand wash dishes instead of using a dishwasher)

– You can even consider getting ceiling fans installed. While the upfront installation costs may be steep, it can be a considerably less expensive option to central A/C.
