How to Stay Cool with a Broken AC in the Meantime:   

  1. Set Your Ceiling Fans to Spin Counterclockwise: Most ceiling fans are set to push air downwards because of their default clockwise rotation. But if your AC is down, try switching the blades to spin counterclockwise. This will pull up the cooler air from the floor and spread a refreshing breeze around the room, making it more comfortable. 
  1. Keeping Your Home Cool: Love letting the sunshine in? We get it! But with your AC on the fritz, it’s not the best idea. To beat the heat, close your blinds, draw the curtains, and make sure all your windows are shut tightly. 
  1. Limit Exterior Door Use: Try to keep external doors closed as much as you can. Every time you open them, warm air rushes in, making things worse. 
  1. Opening Windows at Night: When the sun sets, and it gets cooler outside, it’s a great time to open your windows and let a refreshing breeze in. Just remember to close them again in the morning! 
  1. Avoid using heat-generating appliances: Try to hold off on using any heat-emitting appliances like ovens, stoves, dryers, and dishwashers. They’ll just make your home feel even hotter. 
  1. Crafting Your Own DIY AC: This one’s a bit “out there,” but it can actually work! Get creative and make a homemade AC with just ice and an electric fan. Here’s how: put some ice in a big bowl and place it in front of the fan. As the fan blows air over the ice, the air cools down, giving you a pretty effective cooling setup if you’re sitting right in front of it!
