Using Fans to Stay Cool Without AC

The Summer means tepid evenings & hotter mornings.

Staying cool can be difficult when the heat index rises.

Whether you don’t have a/c or are experiencing a power outage or high energy bills, there are still ways to keep comfortable. Since old times, fans have been a lifesaver during the summer. Keeping cool without AC may seem impossible, however there are some things you can do. These include getting a box fan, putting a damp towel on the fan, leveraging your windows, using a dehumidifier, & increasing cross ventilation. Airflow can be improved by installing box fans or window fans in the house. Place it close to where you are standing or standing, & turn it on the lowest setting. The fan will pull in cooler air from outside, so you will get a nice breeze. For even more airflow, open a window across the room to create a cross breeze. To increase the cooling effect of your fan, hang a damp towel or wet sheet over the fan & guess the difference! Place fans near windows to pull cooler air in. To location your fan at a higher level, you can use a stool or ladder if you have tall windows. As tepid air rises, the fans will push it out of the window. In the summer, humidity levels tend to rise, making it difficult to keep cool without an a/c, dehumidifiers are superb for removing excess moisture from the air & keeping you cool without a/c. When the weather is cooler, open the windows in the day & evening. You can also improve cross-ventilation in your kitchen & washroom by installing exhaust fans. Fans are a superb way to stay cool in the summer, however their effectiveness will vary depending on the heat index & wind speed.
