Returning home after stressful studying and working hours is a source of happiness for many people. However, for students, especially those staying in hostels, this is not the case.
Staying in a small space in the hot summer can be extremely uncomfortable. To overcome this situation, I will share with you 10 effective ways to cool down a motel room or closed room in the summer.
Check out the video below for 5 quick room cooling tips:
First Cover the window
The first way to cool a room is to close the curtains, especially the window blinds. By minimizing the amount of sunlight entering the room between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., your room will become noticeably cooler.
2 Clean the floor
If you’re resting in the room during the hot noon, try lying on the floor without a mat or mattress. To reduce the heat even further, wipe the floor with cold water before sleeping and allow it to dry naturally.
If ice is available, you can even wipe the floor with a mixture of ice cubes and water to make the tiles feel cooler. This simple action will also improve the room’s fragrance, leading to a more restful sleep.
3 Use a steam fan
If you can, using a steam fan can be an effective way to beat the heat. Alternatively, you can create your own steam fan by placing ice in front of a fan. The fan will blow the cool air created by the melting ice cubes around the room, making it much cooler.
4 Turn off electrical appliances
Electrical appliances such as lights, computers, and televisions emit heat energy, which can make your room hotter. To combat this, make sure to turn off all unnecessary electrical equipment. Not only will this save electricity, but it will also significantly reduce the heat in the room.
5 Plant more trees
Placing potted plants such as climbing plants or aquatic plants around the corners of the room or near the windows can help reduce heat. Additionally, placing plants next to electrical equipment like study lights or computers, such as betel nut plants, can absorb radiation effectively.
6 Use a cotton mattress
Using a cotton mattress can provide a cool and smooth surface directly on your body. Cotton fabric is highly breathable and lightweight, which can help reduce the temperature in a closed room.
7 Drink more water
Drinking enough water not only helps maintain health but also helps regulate body temperature. Staying hydrated will keep your body cool, especially during hot summer days.
8 Sleep alone
To reduce the temperature in your room, it is advisable to sleep alone. Having multiple people in a small space can increase the room’s temperature, making it uncomfortable. Create a separate space for yourself to improve comfort and reduce the temperature in the room.
9 Use energy-saving light bulbs
Using energy-saving light bulbs, especially LED bulbs, can help save energy and keep your room cooler. These bulbs emit less heat and create a more comfortable lighting environment.
Ten Wear thin and breathable clothes
In hot weather, wearing thin clothes made of natural fabrics can help prevent stuffiness and provide a more comfortable and flexible feeling while moving.
Above are simple yet highly effective methods to cool down a room. Apply these tips to beat the heat during this sweltering summer!
