Staying Cool In A Heat Wave
Not everyone is lucky enough to have AC in your home or Apt, and with Mother Nature throwing us another mild heatwave, I wanted to help ya stay cool this week.
Here here are a few simple and easy tips to chill Literally
1- Window Films
This may sound simple, but the basic act of blocking solar rays in the form of UV from entering the house can help decrease the internal temperature – manufacturers claim they can prevent up to 78% of the sun’s heat from entering your home.
In the same way that window films can help reduce the heat entering your home, curtains work the same way, except it’s not a semi-permanent solution like window films are. Some brands of shades and curtains can block 90% sunlight. this is my go-to
3- Cooler A/C
Hit up your local hardware store and grab a styrofoam cooler, grab a bag of ice and a fan, Then google various DIY projects online how to make one for yourself. They are simple quick and easy and can help throw the hottest part of the day
Fans if you can find one at your local hardware store or Walmart, Fred Meyer, Home Depot, or Lowes grab yourself a tower fan, it’s recommended to go for a standing fan. The larger diameter compared to a tower fan means you’re getting bigger blades, and bigger blades mean more airflow. If you want to be really eco-friendly, consider a solar-powered fan.
