Cool tips on how to survive the hot summer nights without AC.
September may mark the end of the summer for most of the country, but in Southern California it normally marks the beginning of a heat wave. Far from crisper temperatures, if you’ve lived in Los Angeles or the neighboring area for a couple of years, you’re likely bracing yourself for more hot weather ahead.
If you’re living without an air conditioning unit, this might be dreaded news. Fortunately, we’ve put together this collection of great tips on how to survive hot summer nights without AC to keep you cool!
- Water Bottle Wisdom: You know that a hot water bottle can keep you toasty during the chilly nights of winter, but did you know it can help you regulate temperature in the summer, too? Pop your hot water bottle in the freezer, then bring it to bed with you for an ice pack that won’t leak.
- Cool Cotton: While silk and satin might seem appealing during hot nights, they’ll actually trap your body heat (and your sweat). Instead, choose lightweight cotton sheets which will allow your body to breathe, helping it keep cool.
- Appliance Avoidance: Running your clothes dryer and turning on your oven will spike the temperature in your place. Instead, line dry your clothes and grill or use your slow cooker to whip up dinner. In fact, while you’re at it unplug all of your appliances at night and you’ll reduce the total heat in your home.
Even though your home may not be offering you the exact temperature you’re wanting, it still offers you a good deal of protection from the summer’s heat. Have you protected it? If you’re looking for the right homeowners insurance
