How to Keep Your Apartment Cool Without Air Conditioning

It’s always a hassle to adjust the thermostat during spring–you never know when it’s going to be warm or cold, and you don’t want to have to waste energy when you don’t have to.

We’re in that awkward stage of the year when the weather isn’t hot, and it isn’t cold.  Rather, we have days that are gorgeous, days that are too warm, and days that dip into unusually cold temperatures.  It’s always a hassle to adjust the thermostat during spring–you never know when it’s going to be warm or cold, and you don’t want to have to waste energy when you don’t have to.  Here are some clever ways to keep your apartment cool as summer approaches with each passing day.

Open Doors and Windows

 

Your main goal is to use the natural breeze to cool your home, especially because the spring can provide you with beautiful winds even on hot days.  Open all of your doors and windows to ensure that there’s maximum airflow throughout your apartment.  Breezes can actually cool your home faster than any fan could.  

 

Focus on Body Temperature

 

It’s actually extremely beneficial for you to practice the art of keeping your body cool!  When you can’t seem to escape the heat, it’s best to use that to your advantage.  Take this opportunity to enjoy a nice cold beverage, or pass out smoothies to the family.  You can even use a cold rag across your neck while you’re relaxing, which can calm your nerves and lower your body temperature at the same time.

 

Leave Ceiling Exhaust Fans On

 

After you take a shower or cook on the stove, hot air rises, making it difficult for your home’s temperature to regulate.  However, leaving the exhaust fan turned on in these areas can pull the hot moisture out of the air, which cools the room.  In most cases, these fans are more effective than opening a window, because they work where the heat rises.  You don’t have to leave these on all the time, but they can make a big difference after a steamy shower.
