5 Tips and Tricks to Survive Summer
- Freezer Sheets
If you enjoy sleeping in a cool environment, but still like to be covered by a blanket or sheet; this trick is for you! Try placing your sheets in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour before bed and enjoy a nice cool sleep.
- Make the Most of Your Fans
Your fans can be helpful to circulate air around the room and create a breeze. However; on hotter days it can be beneficial to direct your fans toward open windows and pull hot air from your home.
Ancient Egyptians used to sleep with sheets or towels dampened with cool water. We recommend using a plastic bed cover or laying down a few dry towels under you to prevent wetting your bed if you try this method out.
Set up two fans: One pulling cool air from the outdoors and one on the other side of the room to create a cross-breeze for you to sleep in.
- DIY AC
Place a shallow pan or container filled with ice or cold water in front of a fan. The breeze will pick up and distribute cold water droplets forming a nice, cool mist.
These tricks are helpful to have in a pinch, but a fully functioning air conditioning system is a necessity. Give Haas Heating and Cooling a call today at (330) 844-9303 to learn more about our HVAC services.
