Air Conditioning

So last year I got this portable air conditioner. With all the hot days in the last month and with at least another month and a half to go I have been absurdly glad to have it. Mine is an LG but looks a lot like this.

I went looking to see how much it is at Canadian Tire turns out that as of right now not a single store has any left. Made me glad I had this one from last year

I then went exploring to find out how you can cool off if you don't have one.

The easiest way is to go to a local beach or pool it will be slightly cooler there than in your home and laying in the water will help cool you even more. Or get wet then lay on your towel and as the wetness evaporates it will cool you off.

The second easiest, in my opinion, is to get one of those high energy fans like a box fan and if you can stand the noise they cool the air a lot. Add a bucket of ice in front of it and it will cool things off even faster. If the high energy fan is too loud you can use any old fan it just won't be as efficient even with the bucket of ice.



Feeling cooler yet? Are the pictures helping? :)

There are a few things you can do that don't require a lot of extras like fans and ice. Close all your windows and window blinds, close all the doors leading into the room you live in, wear as little as possible, turn the thermostat down as low as you can and you will find yourself a little cooler.

If you are still too hot have a shower but use tepid (barely warm) water then instead of towelling yourself off let yourself air dry, repeat as needed. You don't need to be in the shower long just long enough to bring your internal temperature down a little and get your skin wet.

One last note if you are a DIYer check out this google search page for some ideas for making your own air conditioner or this one to make your own fan.
