Cooling Your Bedroom without AC

When you're living without air conditioning, the warm weather can strip the summer of all its fun - especially at night. Below are a few helpful, inventive tricks to help ward off heat so you wake up rested all summer long.

Point that fan out. It might feel good to have air blow over you as you sleep, but to cool your room quicker without AC, grab a boxy window fan and point it out, not in. This will pull warm air from the room and push it outside.

Reverse ceiling fans. In the summer, program your ceiling fans to run counter-clockwise. This will pull hot air up and out, instead of just spinning that warm air over your body.

Choose the right bedding. When it comes to staying cool during those hot summer nights, cotton is the way to go. Choose a light sheet made of 100 percent cotton, and avoid polyester and synthetics at all costs.

Frosty bottle. You’ve heard of a hot water bottle, right? Well these helpful toe warmers can also keep you cool during the summer. Stick the bottle in the freezer and pop it out before bed.

Make use of that bathroom fan. Have a bathroom right off the bedroom? Turn on the overhead fan and leave the door open to let the fan pull hot air out from your room as you sleep.
