Hot summer - how you make it cold at home?

Hey there.

 

Hot summer, it has begun!

 

How you manage to make your home more cold? I just purchased 2 of tower fans and with these no more too hot feel. 24,99 € / one. So almost 50 € and I have my 2 rooms more cold at summer when needed. These tower fans will not bring low temperature to home, but these make colder feeling.

Sad to say living in the Midwest U.S. where we get a very big range of weather conditions from frigid arctic blasts to hot muggy humidity from the Gulf States in the South or the swertling dry heat from the Southwest which usually starts in early July to mid and sometimes late September. But this season has been somewhat mild, the Spring started out somewhat warmer and dryer than usual, and then the rains kicked in like it should but about 3 weeks later where everything cooled down into high 80-90 degree ranges so it had been recently pleasant aside from the occasional noisy thunderstorm with heavy rains.

 

When it gets hot enough a simple energy effiecient window air conditioner is usually enough with a couple of tower fans to move the air about.

Just like the last poster, living in the Midwest is a real pain since our summers are just as extreme as our winters. 

 

Fans won't help you since they just blow hot air around, and can end up making the ambient temperature hotter since the motor heats up the air and whatnot. They'll make you feel a bit cooler since they blow moisture off your skin regardless, but it's not much once the temperature goes over 90F. 

 

Thankfully, a bit of internet research led me to find a solution that repurposes those fans. Go to YouTube and look up "five gallon bucket air conditioners". It's basically a large bucket with a couple holes in the side, with a fan blowing air into it from the top; inside you put a frozen gallon container of water (like a milk jug or something). It lasts ~4 hours before the water thaws and you need another frozen jug, but if you keep a few in the freezer you'll be good all day.

I live in England, and we get very, very humid weather in summer. People are surprised that my country gets decent weather because we are so far up north in the world.

How about those movable/portable air conditioning systems?

btw the bladeless fan is one invention that looks nice, but it doesn't quite cool the house as well as i thought.

It's hot as mental madness. Really it's too hot. I have 2 fans at maximum volume and it's a little better.
