4 ways to beat the heat on scorching summer days without air conditioning at home

If your home doesn't have an air conditioner, try exploring all possible options to make your house cooler and more comfortable on hot sunny days.

To keep the room cool, you should identify the hottest spot where the most heat is absorbed accurately. Typically, the temperature drops the lowest from 4 am to 7 am. During that time, you should open the windows to allow the outside temperature to flow into the house.

To avoid sunlight during the day, you should use suitable curtains. Synthetic curtains usually heat up quickly and fade easily. Therefore, it is best to use thick white linen curtains.

If you don’t want the room to retain too much heat, you should store all dust-attracting items like rugs, sofa pillows. That is also a way to keep the air cleaner and cooler.

Before going to bed, you should mop the house, wet the floor, which helps the room temperature to drop immediately and feel comfortable when sleeping.
