Five Ways to Keep your House Cool without Air-conditioning

Purchasing an air conditioner may not be what you can tick off your To-Do list right now, but if you find your house uncomfortable as a result of the heat, there are creative ways to make it even more conducive without air conditioning.
Buy a Box Fan – Box fans are often placed in or near the windows, it helps to draw in cool air from outside or pull warm air out of a room depending on how they are placed. If the blades face the window screen, the fan helps pull hot air out of the room, flipped the other way, it draws in air from outdoors. It saves energy and is also an affordable alternative to air conditioning. For your kitchen and/or bathroom, fix an exhaust fan that will pull the hot air that rises after you cook or in your bathroom to draw out steam after showering.
Close your Curtains and Blinds – Heat finds its way into the house through windows, to lower the indoor temperature, close your curtains and blinds. It is advised to use dark curtains and blinds, and this will help to reduce the flow of sunlight into the house. When the sun is down, you can open up all curtains and blinds to allow fresh air in.
Stay Hydrated and Take a Cold Shower – To keep your house cool, you have to feel relaxed within. Drinking water regularly is the first step, and it makes your body hydrated and replenishes body moisture lost to heat. Taking a cold shower or bath also helps to cool the body by lowering its temperature.
Disconnect Unnecessary Heat Sources – One of the major causes of heat are unplugged heat sources which include your chargers plug, TV and other electrical appliances that draw in additional heat through the socket. To lower the temperature in your house, always unplug chargers and other appliances that are not in use. Also, consider using more energy-efficient and LED bulbs, it saves energy, money and heat felt in the house.
Declutter your House – Sometimes the heat you complain about can be caused by all the unnecessary load in the house. When your home is congested, there is little or no room for air to move freely. Clearing out the house will enable proper ventilation and allow air to circulate freely. Also, if there is a room no one is using, close it off to keep the cool air in only occupied areas of the house.

Understanding how much rent and added expenses you can afford will help you to stay within your budget and avoid unwarranted scenarios of a payment default.
Location – Location is another crucial factor to be considered when choosing a rental property, because of the potential value of properties is largely affected by location.
